Yep, it seems it was nothing, just a little bandage in the hand and they sent him to pose in front of the photographers in the "celebrities photocall" :lol:

I was following the live timing (for an article I'm writing, slooooowly) and the guy was the fastest on track :blink:

@OfficialLRGP: We just spoke to Kimi. There's nothing to worry about, he only has a sore wrist. He might have it checked again on Monday, but that's all.

You're right. Remember when Montoya injured his shoulder with a mountain-bike or a motocross bike while playing tennis? :zz:

Luckily, this time it seems it's true. The guys of the Austrian press talked to the organization people and they told it was just a light bandage what they had to use. I'm a major expert in wrist bandages (against my will), and a light bandage really points towards nothing important.

Is he going to test R30 at all. He thinks he can test this year car with gp2 tires. In news they write that it is 2009 car with gp2 tires. So what is he going to test?
