Lotus: Kimi and Hulkenberg. What a dream team
Totally agree. I've always rated Hulkenberg well. He reminds me of a young Kimi. They'd look like the "twin" team!
Besides, the autograph queue for Lotus (in Melbourne anyway) is not separated on its own as Red Bull's/Ferrari's/McLaren's/Mercedes.
That matters when you are waiting in line...
Boullier confirmed that Kimi's back salary finally settled. Now they just have to make sure they have the funding and developmental push for next year in order to retain Kimi.
There's no way at Red Bull will Vettel be told that Kimi is faster than him and to not hold him up. Kimi may not need that help but he's always thankful when it happens (Germany'13 when he shook Grosjean's hand after the race; Brazil'07 when he effusively acknowledged Massa's help).
So, agree that Kimi and Hulkenberg pairing would be every poster's dream!
