Yesterday, I lived one of the most kafkian experiences of my life. I was having dinner with the 2 AMuS guys, the 2 of Bild, Benoit and Kulta. On our left: Schumacher. Just next to me: Both Rosbergs. Two tables behind us: Grosjean and d'Ambrosio. And also somewhere around: Bruno Senna. Of course, no one of the guys sitting with me found that interesting at all but, suddenly, they discovered Kaká (the football player) was sitting also there and begun to say: "look! look! it's Kaká! wuau!". And I could just sit there thinking: are these guys nuts? There are 8 world championships sitting in the room at the moment and you are amazed because Kaká is there?! :blink:

No joke. I feel like a fish in a fish-bowl :<>:

That's what Kimi probably feels :lol:
Autosport told that tourists were taking photos. You'll all end up to facebook and twitter :p

Kimi must feel much worse than that. I felt very sorry for him yesterday when he had to deal with all the media. So many people... And then the Italians had to ask about Ferrari again! :<>: He was very close to lose his temper.

Nope, those things are private and should stay private :)

Sounds a bit more interesting than the dark room in the corner of the NEC :p

We'll try for more tests & races.

I guess for them it's amazing, because they get used to seeing the F1 drivers on a weekly basis. I almost got like that in Birmingham, just passing BTCC drivers and it was pretty normal :p

Yep, I will be here.

Now I will dissappear for a little while. There will be a media session with Bianchi, and usually these sessions are better with the small teams and young drivers.
