It brings some welcome diversity of knowledge and perspectives when driver fans post on team sites. I was looking forward to Kimi Raikkonen joining even more so for precisely that reason.
I have to say though, as sorry as I am to see the german-flying_finn_or_whatever leave, I respect his decision. "The Merzario days again" point he makes really hits home, especially when you look at a 2012 formula one season entry list, with Williams so low down the order, and with such...mediocre drivers. Are they really going to wrestle this team higher? On face value, it just looks like a tail end team with no prospects, however, appearances can be deceptive and I am desperately hoping that this is the case.
I will say though, that as a Williams fan, I have too much emotional investment to be able to abandon ship. I am also reminded by recent news stories of how humiliating it can be to abandon a sinking ship prematurely. So on that note, Im in for another season.
