From The KRS Archive: Belgium 2009
It’s a loooong four week break till F1 is back and we return to Spa-Francorchamps, dubbed as the Holy Ground of Kimi Raikkonen amongst his army of fans.
Somehow, even when I was slightly relieved to have this long break away from F1 for a while especially after the bullshit Kimi is going through, you still look forward to the next race. Like any typical F1 fan, withdrawal symptoms start almost immediately and it’s only 3 days after the emotional, crazy and massively disappointing (for Kimi, duh) Hungarian GP; I was bored and got watching some of his old races; Britain 2008 (remarkably similar to this year’s GP), Belgium 2008 (heartbreaking, I don’t think I could personally continue blogging if this year’s race goes wrong as well).
Then to get back to high spirits, I chose to watch his last victory for Scuderia Ferrari, his win from 6th on the grid, at Spa 2009. The opening lap…It just gave me chiils, y’know? The Iceman is just…another level of speed. Even in a dog car. But F1 isn’t that simple nowadays and Kimi, though a world champion in one of the last real fast F1 cars of it’s era in 2007, is affected by these new F1 cars perhaps more so than the others but it’s not right to say he is slow or lacking motivation (seriously, again?). It’s a natural God given talent, you’re born with it, it doesn’t disappear. So screw you haters and journalists who have nothing better to do that to disrespect a world class driver and dedicated sportsman who’s going through a phase of extreme bad luck again this year.
Alas, back to Spa; we really need to see you on the podium again Kimi – we miss you up there and it’s just not right that Vettel takes all the glory for Ferrari. This victory was special and so special infact, sacred almost… as it is still his last with Ferrari, despite his teammate taking two wins with the team this season. I felt like sharing it with all the fans again…
