Gary,

Frankly, I don't understand Ferrari nowadays, (but I haven't since the Gerhard Berger days).

Kimi was forced to take a backseat to Vettel, but with proper team support, (IMHO), he's a more mature driver, emotionally.

;-)

So, maybe Kimi's P1 last week with hopefully winning Italia-GP was the ultimate thank you from Scuderia Management in light of Leclerc set to replace him at Ferrari next season

Three reasons:

1. Still wants to drive in F1

2. No more designated number two driver

3. owns / will own some Sauber

So, all in all, not bad.

I'm surprised, I didn't think he enjoyed it 'that' much... and wouldn't have thought he
was at all interested in being a part owner..

With plenty of money I thought he would have partied into the sunset.....

He'll be "another voice" towards setting up new 2021 spec Formula certainly for Sauber. I imaginer for Ferrari somehow as well....if he wants to continue on.

BTW, we should start calling them Alpha Romeo instead of Sauber. Or maybe Sauber Alpha Romeo?

Kimi's a TRUE racer and WDC, who was always politically hemmed in to make someone else look good.

Happy he can be at Sauber-Alfa, and perhaps even buy part of the team outright.

I don't think drivers have deep enough pockets these days to help subsidise a small team. Not worth the effort. Look at how Williams is struggling and Claire fielding partners and swearing she won't sell the team. Kimi could start right now.
It's too expensive

By the way, is there a possibility for Mick Schumacher to start his F1 career beside Kimi next season? Or next season after?

I've been watching a lot of Rallycross lately, each race only lasts about five minutes with lots of contact, close racing, tactics and driving skill with car control.

I reckon Kimi would fit in well.
