day is over.

Raikkonen fastest. My gut feeling: Lotus bluffing :-(

They went fastest because they had a few sponsors there...

From driving, I might be wrong, but I think there is nothing wrong from his driving.
About the car... I don't know. I think that time earlier today was too suspicious, even if it was done with medium tyres and while it was still cold.

But, some of the big teams seem not to be too happy with their results here. Let's wait and see.

I won't tell who said the following (but he is a very well known journalist) in front of me just 5 minutes ago, while he was summarizing the day to somebody else:

"Kimi is a superstar, but the car..."

In other words: they have the driver but not the car

I have no idea what they were testing on that last run but i wouldn't keep it too worrying yet. We'll see tomorrow if they still do 26's in longer runs. Then I would be a bit worried.
Hopefully some experienced pair of eyes will tell if the Lotus looked stable in turns and brakings compared to others.

Thanks, Kriss! Interesting, seems like they're blowing on the rear tyres.
