  1. Looking forward to Kimi’s team radio in the end…

      Yep, we need that radio transcript!

  2. not a good race to enjoy. TV director has done bad coverage, confusing all along.
    and Pirelli soft tyres were only good in Saturday, but never worked in Sunday.
    Grosjean shows he’s the man on charge at Lotus, while Kimi a bit immature today. Good showing from Massa and Webber. However… Ah, I don’t wanna say meaningless stuff.
    Mercedes/Ferrari/Lotus battle should be entertaining, otherwise I might just lose interest on this year.
    Congrats for Seb, bring on next year.

    1. I don’t think it was a case of Kimi being immature. It was more of a risky strategy trying to stretch that set of tyres to the end of the race, and it proved completely wrong.

      As for Grosjean, superb race. I never would have thought that from 17th on the grid he could make it onto the podium, but he did it so well done to him!

    2. I was a bit unconscious watching the race (started 4am here) but I think I heard the team telling Kimi they were going to the end of the race with those tires. Why you say he was immature ? The only mature driver in F1 right now aside from Webber is Raikkonen.

      1. Maybe the supposed contact with Grosjean while Grosjean was trying to recover Lotus a podium? I dunno… that could be it, don’t you think?

      2. @toiago and non-user Schumonen, don’t get me wrong, look at my profile and find that the only driver I support is Kimi.
        I meant, he and Lotus should’ve known that his strategy is messed up already when Rosberg passed him easily. at least let Grosjean past and hold Massa, Lewis, and Perez as hard as he can. what he’s doing instead? push Grosjean to track limits, exposing both to danger of cars behind. I personally expect him to play team game today. but all in all, he’s already frustated since the first lap.
        and maturity isn’t similar with age, I suppose?

  3. Good to see both of the Force Indias in the points there!

  4. Pleeeease give the winning time as part of the result.
