Thanks momo, this one is great.
But the one where Boullier is looking at Kimi (the one Kimi is blurry in the picture)... sends shivers down my spine. And I don't mean nice shivers. :fear:

I don't trust Boullier at all :roll:: actually I trust him as much as I trust Domenicali..

I wonder who those two other guys with them are...

Teehee :lol:

Interview with Gerard Lopez:
Kimi came to Enstone today – how was his visit?
It was good. It felt like the right thing to do to bring him here today. We decided that bringing Kimi into the team was the right decision to make. We had to be forward looking in terms of performance and, regardless of how good any car is, you need a good driver. Kimi has proven himself as one of the fastest drivers around and he’s still in his prime. In terms of motivation, I think he’s more motivated than ever. The more people that question it (his motivation) the better, because it’s only going to motivate him further. It’s a very important step in getting the team to where we want it to be, which is one of the top teams in Formula 1.

What was the exact reason for choosing Kimi?
I can summarise it in one word. He is fast. I think he will fit in very well with the way we do things; it’s a good place for him to fit in.

The interest seems to be higher than when Schumacher made his comeback…
I wasn’t aware of that, but that’s fantastic!

Someone's taken some footage of a drunk guy being interviewed in a club and dubbed it as if he's talking about F1 and Kimi's return. Like all those Downfall parodies.

Hilarious. :lol:

It is not, López is the one here on the left of Kimi

(credit to olliek88 for the picture, no idea where he got it from)

BTW, first day on the job, and first thing that Kimi had to do was to give a speech. So cruel! :rofl:
