Does Kimi Raikkonen deserve to stay in F1 next year?
By:

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel shone in the Spanish Grand Prix, but Formula 1's other active world champion was also mightily impressive. And like the other two, his future in the category is far from certain. Here's why…

It's easy to see when a driver in Formula 1's leading teams is succeeding/failing (delete as appropriate). In 2020, with the championship's unofficial 'Class A' down to just Mercedes and Red Bull, which one of the quartet of drivers is absent from the podium stands out. The others can bask in the champagne and take home the silverware.

In the crowded midfield, it's harder to see who really shines – but the feats of reaching Q3 and scoring points make this simpler. They are tangible, historical facts. But at the back of the grid it's easy to get lost in the grind to escape Q1, which in any case will leave little trace down the years.
