"We decided what was best for us in the long term, not just what was best immediately," Austrian Marko told Brazil's O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper. "How old is Kimi, 34? […]

Only Raikkonen to drive longer Lotus at Monza

Kimi Raikkonen, not his teammate Romain Grosjean, will debut Lotus' new longer-wheelbase car this weekend at Monza. "Kimi will drive the long wheelbase on Friday, and if necessary we can go back to the shorter version," race engineer Mark Slade told the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat.

"Low downforce tracks are not good for us," said the Finn, "but let's see how the […]
