Bravo Kimi, glad you could pull it off once more.

He now holds the record for longest span between first and last victory, a record previously held by Schumacher.

Yes by basically giving Kimi the fastest car and not having someone like Vettel has his teammate.

For what purpose? I like Kimi, but I'm pretty sure Leclerc could have won that race as well, and he has a possibility of being the future of Ferrari - Kimi does not.
It's good to see Kimi finally win a race again but there's nothing like trying to over egg it.

I think he should have tried going to RBR Honda instead. Not sure what he is going to achieve in Sauber but it will be great to see if team can get more competitive so he can fight with Ricciardo next few years in the midfield :?
you know if Ferrari had informed Kimi earlier there's a chance he may have gone to McLaren as rumour has it they had hoped to sign him. Pity that didn't happen IMO
Yes I agree Mcalren is much bigger team and should beat Sauber. I am so glad he got the win. Just 3 more races left for a good result of his career. Next 2yrs is going to be a struggle :?

Yep.

A brilliant performance by Kimi but we know how much quicker Sebastian is. It is why Vettel is challenging for the title and not Kimi.

I love him as a character but this performance is very late. Makes you wonder how easy Vettel could have made it if he didn't make two costly mistakes in Austin. Also appears that Ferrari are back to being the car to beat now they've reverted their car. Should make the last few races very interesting and entertaining. One thing I didn't want is for Lewis to go ahead and win them with ease. Now every race is anyone's race - even better with RBR having that pace too.

Such a shame RBR are like Ferrari but with major reliability issues and mistakes made by the team/drivers. We could really see a 3 team competition in the last few races. And they say F1 is predictable!!. Ha I love it.

Obviously Kimi is just having a bit of fun with it, but the original comparison people are making between Hunt and Hamilton is so silly. I could show you several photos of Hunt wearing silly looking clothing. I'm not convinced romanticising alcoholism is ideal.

Could always counter with that rather cringy pic of Hamilton grinding up against a Rihanna at that festival a couple of years back... But please don't.

:lol: I won't doubt that Hamilton has a fashion sense that I find baffling and bewildering. But I don't think most F1 fans, whether Hamilton fans or not would suggest he is typical of a modern F1 driver.

Just love Kimi:
