What we’re talk­ing about at Tow­ers

F1 Racing - - INSIDER -

Kimi Räikkö­nen for 2016 was the big story head­ing into the Bel­gian GP, and it got a pos­i­tive re­ac­tion from fol­low­ers of our Twit­ter ac­count (@F1Rac­ing_­mag). In an en­tirely un­sci­en­tific sur­vey, 66.6 per cent of re­spon­dents gave the de­ci­sion a thumbs-up.

Craig Hamil­ton (@ham­lyn_­greg) said: “Great news. Too early to write off such a tal­ented driver.” Mark Reese (@the_re­al_reesey) added: “Good for fans, good for Kimi and Seb, and good for Fer­rari. We all know he’s past his best, but he still does a job for them.”

Oth­ers wanted to see a younger driver in the car. Matt Bai­ley-Smith (@mat­tbai­ley­smith) said: “Can’t help be­ing a lit­tle sur­prised, thought Bot­tas looked a sound bet. Kimi’s not looked on it.” Angie (@Girl­racer1976) re­sponded: “I think they are hold­ing out for some­one in a year’s time… maybe Ric­cia­rdo, so don’t want to sign Bot­tas or Hülken­berg on a longer deal.”
