145 votes and not one for Kimi - that has to be a record?

I just don't know how anyone can be a Kimi fan these days. He is just sooooo off race after race. He would have to double his level of performance to be a mere shell of his former self. The lack of any votes for him is indeed amazing and indicates that the time may have come where Kimi's large fan base may finally be reaching the end of the rope with him.

Kimi doesn't have the same number of fairweather fans as other drivers

Indeed. It's odd for H.K. to criticize Kimi fans, considering that I believe he's a Macca fan. Real fans support their driver/team through the bad years as well as the good.

I do also think you've touched on something, which is that fans of the 'Big Three' (and maybe Max and Ricciardo as well) tend to believe their driver is the best on the grid, whereas fans of all the rest don't have that luxury. If it's obvious your driver isn't the best on the grid to start with, I think you're more likely to accept him even when he's not doing very well.

Yep. I'm still a fan, just a very disappointed one.
