Kimi at 41 is still in F1 and showing no signs of slowing anytime soon, however should he still be on the grid looking at how many young and exciting drivers are taking F1 over, and is he stopping more talent from coming into the sport?

  • I don't see any reasons as to why not, as long as F1 teams want to hire Kimi, Alonso, Vettel etc.. Why would young Talent have any kind of priority? Want more young guns in F1? Add more teams, let teams have 3 cars each. How fun wouldn't it be if all teams had 3 cars instead of two? Excitement!!!

  • Kimi is gold. Excellent driver even with a bad car, and also helps the team to develop the car. Why change a driver just because of age, if he delivery the most results ?

  • it is not up to Kimi to step down if he still likes the challenge. It is up to the team. If the team has a better option, another driver that has more upward potential than Kimi, they should make the change. Step down? Why would he volunteer?

  • If the 'young' talent is strong enough, he's gone. As it is, he consistently out-performs the 'young' 'talent'. Kimi stays. You and your clickbait thumbnails, Aldas.

  • Kimi proves every race that he's still got what it takes. I'd like to see him in a better car but with the car he currently has he still beats his teammate & mixes it with driver's in far better cars. While he continues to do this & has ambition to get the maximum he should continue

  • Ah this is so ridiculous. "young talent", haven't seen anything special outside verstappen among the current younger drivers. Leclerc is fast, but nothing too special out of him either without a fast car. Gasly, Mazepin, Latifi, norris, ocon, stroll, giovinazzi -- what special do they have to offer/has offered really?

  • Kimi comes with a wide expanse of experience and the sponsors love him. He probably has a bigger fan base than Lewis Hamilton. I believe Kimi should be in a faster car than the Alfa Romeo. He was at times more consistent than even Vettel when they were both driving for Ferrari. If Kimi leaves the sport half of the small F1 fan base will die off and frankly FIA would not want that.

  • Kimi is in f1 because he loves racing in f1. and well yes he's getting on but he's still quick at times and very consistent overall still and after his career he deserves to decide when he wants to retire imo

  • If those young talents can't unseat a 41 year old, then they don't deserve to race in F1. It's that simple. Kimi is still competitive and so is Alonso. Age doesn't matter in the end and being a young talent doesn't mean you deserve a shot. You have to earn it.

  • I think you made a point different from than the one you intended to, in that you are showcasing that both Kimi and Gio should probably be out of F1. Not to dish out on poor Gio, but it's been said multiple times the only/main reason he's still with Alfa Romeo in 2021 is because they wanted an italian driver. That being said, just because Kimi's better doesn't mean he's deserving of an F1 seat.

  • In my opinion just because there’s young drivers out there doesn’t mean Kimi should retire. If they’re good enough they’ll come through eventually.

  • I mean it wont be long till he does retire for good and none of the F2 talent recently have been that jaw dropping that they need to be in F1 immediately so him still having a seat is fine. If Pourchaire blitzes the F2 field then we have a real debate cuz hes a Sauber Academy guy but if he does average then they can have Kimi for a year more and develop Pourchaire with another year in F2. I feel like the reason Ferrari keep Gio in (no offense to him he’s decent) is that he’s Italian so those are + points and i guess Ilott didnt impress them enough (would love to see Ilott in F1 tho even if for just a year or two) In my opinion the ones holding back other young talent worthy of seats are Mazepin (even tho he is young) & Latifi (just hasn’t impressed enough)

  • No such thing as 'stopping young talent' in any sport if they are good enough they will be there no matter who's in which seat. For those who aren't in f1 yet they simply just aren't good enough for the team to tell anyone to get out of their seat that's all.
