BTW, did somebody else notice how Horner was extremely nice towards Kimi before the podium ceremony? :blink:

Well I thought I saw a hug from Horner and that was about it? Everyone was pretty nice to Rosberg after his first win and to Perez after his first podium.

He was chatting with him, asking him about the race and so on while Kimi was with Vettel in the couch and then later also the little tap in the back and so on, while he totally ignored Grosjean (it was his first podium ever). I found it weird because it looked to me more like Whitmarsh or Haug. I didn't know Kimi is friends with Horner.

Oh I think I saw Kimi and Vettel chatting away too and they totally ignored Grosjean too :lol: The poor dude just got his first podium

Horner said to Kimi: "You had a very strong race", and Kimi answered: "Not strong enough".
And now speculations :zz: What did Horner really mean? Why were they all laughing? Did they use some secret hand signs? ''hmm''
I think Kimi knows a lot of people in the paddock and a lot of people knows him behind the media curtain :) Grosjean is rather new face there and doesn't yet know so many people in different teams.

My question to Raikkonen - http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/99095
Q. (Khoda Rawi – F1Arab.com) Kimi, a good result today, but do you think Lotus can keep up the momentum for the next races?

KR: We will try. It's the same story; I have no idea what's going to happen in the next races but the team's been pushing hard to try to improve the car, bringing new parts, but of course they haven't been working as well as we hoped, but anyhow, they are bringing new updates every time when they can. We try to keep pushing and stay up there, but I cannot Page 7 of 7 answer because they are not. That's our aim and that's what we're working for and hopefully it will happen, but who knows how well we can improve or what the others will do. The team is doing good work and we deserve to be here and hopefully we can stay up here in other races also.
