Turun Sanomat newspaper reveals that boss Eric Boullier is so new to winning as a constructor in F1 that he had no idea what to do before mounting the podium for the team's trophy.

"I was a little lost with the protocol, but fortunately Fernando Alonso was helping and advising what I had to do," smiled the Frenchman.

Good he didn't jump on the podium :lol:

ironically Vettel has the same going-in position in Texas as in Abu Dhabi 2010. He'll be world champion if he wins and Alonso gets 5th at most. And don't forget that it's Seb's 100th race. Is that a good omen for him?

The track is a true mulligan for all the drivers and teams. Barring and mechanical failures its Vettel's race to lose

Love this quote from Glock.

'I immediately let Michael Schumacher past and hoped that he would crush the Caterham.' :lol:

:lol: I managed to avoid most cameras earlier this year; I'm sure I probably appeared on RTL and Antena 3 though. I was on Sky once by accident :p
