Fans all over the globe most especially those from Japan relish 2014 Formula One as a historic comeback for Kamui Kobayashi. He has brought together his people to a great cause and have become relentless in pushing further to achieve his dream – to drive in Formula One. These and so much more have drawn men and women from different cultures to rally for the simple yet remarkable Kamui Kobayashi.
For supporters of Kamui Kobayashi, Formula One will never again be complete without him because this Japanese car racer has merged thrill and focus as well as audacity and humility in his exciting comeback to the racing circuit. In an interview earlier this year right after signing up with Caterham, he even recalled his dog, Alfred who was left under the care of a friend in Paris for he can no longer give ample time to take care of the canine. When he’s not too busy with F1 practice schedules, he also seems to always find time to capture fantastic views in photos, for example, a picture of an orange sky. Thus, Kobayashi’s followers and supporters daily check on Twitter or whatever official Kamui Kobayashi social network sites that they’ve signed up with to get the latest updates and even trivial stories about their well-loved Formula One racer.
Such is the love shown by fans of Kamui Kobayashi and it is becoming viral through the Internet as his life story and his well-rounded, inspiring persona touch people in so many ways. This year, as Formula One opens its gates to auto racing fansfrom all over the world, Kamui Kobayashi adds a new breed of auto racing enthusiasts who were drawn by his remarkable story in getting another shot in F1 despite hurdles that for most people seemed impossible to conquer.
Ready for the first F1 race, Samurai Kamui’s Formula One battle gear shimmers with hope. This is it, Kamui Kobayashi fans; we’re all in this. To victory, Team Kamui! http://ow.ly/i/4QiaH
In a nutshell, Japanese racer Kamui Kobayashi finds the idea of driving a GP2 car rather than his CT05 to be more competitive as a result of their performances right after two pre-season tests. Kobayashi’s fastest lap was 1m39.8s in the Bahrain test which is 4/10 of a second slower than last year’s GP2 pole at the same circuit.
Kamui Kobayashi has focused in his pursuit of helping Caterham get better speed for the entire pre-season test using Caterham’s car that is powered by Renault. Other teams powered by Renault are on the other hand focused in making their cars more reliable. For Kobayashi, it’s the speed that matters.
While most Renault-powered teams are focusing on making their cars reliable at the moment, Kobayashi is keen to help Caterham find some more speed at next week’s final pre-season test. As Kobayashi said, “Time is very limited, and we need to think about reliability, but also performance. We have to try as much as we can.” What Kobayashi is driving at is pushing for better team performance and not just bank on the car’s reliability.
It seems that our Japanese F1 bet has well-rounded and balanced ideas on how he can achieve his goals in driving for Caterham in 2014 Formula One. I strongly agree with him because machines will always be at the beck and call of its user-master. It’s still him who holds the wheel; it’s just like people ruing over their destinies, right?
Let me end this with a Kobayashi quote which I find to be said with rich underlying tones of a warrior’s fighting spirit: “I’m not just thinking about finishing the race, of course I also need performance…this year is the biggest chance for this team.”
Japanese F1 racer Kamui Kobayashi has his hands full this 2014. He has been up on his toes with all the test drives just before the Australian Grand Prix opens in March. Caterham’s car may not be the ideal car that Kobayashi has wished for and his fans may feel giddy about it. But, Kobayashi’s fans will never let go of their support for their auto racing idol. Whatever happens, Kamui Kobayashi has his fans to bank on. Kobayashi may end up as a model for driving glasses or a music mixer perhaps, his fans will still be thrilled.
Following the second pre-season test in Bahrain, Kamui Kobayashi’s best time was over six seconds slower compared to the pace set by Nioco Rosberg of Mercedes. We all know that Kobayashi is not in Formula One to simply finish races. He is looking for more potential and is working on so Caterham can catch up. It is important for Kobayashi that he can help boost his team’s performance and he considers that as his biggest challenge. He is very much hopeful because there are still numerous possibilities to improve their performance although he has openly expressed his concern that they are really off the pace.
So, I’d say that Kobayashi and his team are making good progress in the testing of the CT05 car. It may be cliché but there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, right? Keep on giving your best shot, Caterham. And, with Kamui Kobayashi’s fighting spirit at the helm, I know that there’s still a long way to go for Caterham in 2014 Formula One.
