Thanks. :thumbsup:
There's not much first hand info out there about him beyond the usual PR stuff . I always found that a bit weird. He did a good job until now

That is part of the problem nowadays. Drivers are given time to cool off if they're angry + they always always have their PR representatives with them.

The problem is that they get dissected if they dare to show any kind of personality, including "inappropriate" feelings like anger or disappointment. No wonder all of them learns to give nice PR speeches by the time they arrive to F1

A German tabloid asked Kimi to ask Michael Schumacher a question because of his 300's GP. His question: "Where does the ice-cream taste better - Mercedes of Ferrari?
Answer: "Ice-cream? I don't undestand that question.

The DDRS which was suppose to be Lotus' ace in the hole isnt being used due to practice being a washout. Thats a real shame, because I washoping to see the concept in practice and see how much gain there is, especially if their system can bypass the 2013 ruling.

But, I know alot of people was banking on this system being able to give Kimi his first win of the season at his favourite track, does this mean theres little chance of a win?

i mean, Lotus has had this DDRS in development for how long? And it still aint been used. Will be beneficial in Monza, but theres only a few races left now whereit will be beneficial. Could been very useful in Hungary and just mighthave got Kimi the win by giving him the extra oomph down the straight.

I'd love this, Raikkonen has driven well all year, the team let him down, where as after a slight lul in the middle of the first part of the season McLaren are back on form and it's a team Kimi is familiar with, I'd hate to see Lewis go, but if Kimi took his spot I think that's a pretty good outcome.

:lol: Thanks for that, Vida!

I suppose this means something more than announcing a one year extension to his Lotus contract... ''hmm''
