the british newspaper, the former editor of Edd Straw affect the word enthusiastic when considering what the impact of one of last year's most significant F1-transfers - Kimi Raikkonen transition from Ferrari Sauberille - is the march from Australia start to the new F1 season.
Sauber boss Frédéric Vaseurin according to the negotiations with Raikkonen were over just two after the meeting, because of this managed to convince her passion.
Straw says Raikkonen can help vasseur enjoy greatly this in your own mission, Sauber's honour refund.
– Although Raikkonen popular be is some kind of commercial value, he will not be hired why not as an entertainer. The most important thing is that he can be a really valuable aid to Vasseur, who is trying to re-build a few years ago on the verge of bankruptcy to be the stables, Straw writes.
Raikkonen is still the same driver than the Ferrari. He drives steadily and have often in car crashes. He should be able to collect quite valid score, if the car just gives it a chance.
a Total of 16 season of formula one driving Raikkonen has competed over the years in the two top stables. In 2002-2006 went to Mclaren, in 2007 and 2009, 2014-2018 Ferrari. All this experience is now a swiss garage I use.
– the most important thing is his experience on how to peak into the garage to work. Kim is as great a driver as Charles Leclerc and as undervalued as (his way Sauberille been kicked out of) Marcus Ericsson . He brings Sauberille a new dimension, Straw writes.
– a Ferrari of his great strengths was his precise technical feedback, which he is capable of forming quite quickly and the message to the engineers themselves typical of the way briefly.
sauber's like in the garage, the driver's experience is significantly larger in value than for example a Ferrari, which operates almost unlimited resources. Straw said Raikkonen of the experience to be even more invaluable, and download down stop example not only of Raikkonen's career also F1-world change during it.
Raikkonen expertise brings real added value. He is one of the last drivers who have been driving when the cars got to test properly. He is a valuable already based on how much he has spent time in an F1 car behind the wheel. Only the official test days taking into account Raikkonen's belt 297 driving a F1-car. Current testing restrictions on young drivers would take 33 years to raise that kind of reader.
Formula Spy-site editor Thomas Maher was set by Raikkonen test day read quite a lot of talk about it in perspective by pointing out on Twitter that in October, 40 years must be Finnish has used Sauber-contract at the end of almost a whole year of his life solely to the F1 cars testing.
Straw will not be surprised if Raikkonen's career continued to be still current, two-year contract. On the other hand, even if a career ends, the Finnish driver Sauberille legacy is in any case significant.
When he eventually leaves Sauberille, the garage is likely to be a significantly better place in his stead for the future.
– When was the last time he left, the Sauber was a manufacturers ' championship points in the fourth. It is not impossible that he is capable of the same trick a second time.the Perfect couple
Raikkonen as a teammate for driving in the upcoming season, the Italian Antonio Giovinazzo , which is driven to this by two GP-start. The 25-year-old Italian subbed through 2017 beginning just sauber on the run of Pascal wehrlein to .
Straw to keep the sauber's driver duo in the almost perfect combination.
Raikkonen is an experienced veteran that brings knowledge of garage use. Giovinazzo is an ambitious young man, with his belt a huge number of miles to a Ferrari in the simulator. Raikkonen mythical presence and Giovinazzon hunger inspired by the garage staff.
Straw’according to the Räikköseen have Giovinazzon alongside benefit even for Ferrari, with the academy of home-grown players, the Italian is.
– If Sauber would have two stars newcomer, the danger would be that the garage might have problems of inexperience. Raikkonen with no trouble. Kim is also a perfect reference point Giovinazzo - whose performance also Ferrari will be able to evaluate this aspect of the season.Video: Kimi Raikkonen drove IL:n the supplier at the beginning of December in Porvoo.
