Wasnt it just over a year ago that this team grew disillusioned with there lead points scorer, yes indeed the signs have been seen before. Picking up two points on a bad day at the office, finishing all the races and avoiding numerous incidents during the six opening races while keeping his mouth shut is also a pretty good example of a driver knuckling down.

inconvenience. why have a crack at TWO motorsports participants? especially as one is not even in f1?

kimi is paid to drive an f1 car, and he expressed his dislike of the steering as it did not give him enough feel, a factor in a driver feeling a part of the car, and something that is vital in monaco. lotus, to give them their dues, worked to rectify the problem, but it still did not give kimi the confidence needed. this was obvious from his performance in monaco, but i doubt that lotus will wear out his welcome, over ONE particular problem.

and as for spies, isnt he riding in motogp, whereas you aren't?

It seems that practically every other race, or more often?, Kimi complains about the steering. Romain just gets on with the job with some sparkling drives. Lotus pay Kimi millions and he is an employee, they should tell him to quit moaning and get on with the job.
