To be honest, Kimi did perform rather poorly in '08. But all the podium finishes Kimi collected in '09 was pretty tremendous. His start(also thanks to kers) and race pace has often exceeded the car's potential.The problem is that for most of his last two seasons in F1 (the period between his last two wins, in particular, so second half of '08 and first half of '09) neither him nor his driving had been doing too much talking. Doing fastest laps at random during races doesn't win favours, the team must have been asking him every time "why weren't you able to do that for the whole race?".
