@blublz,

The longer the lenght of a track, the better the heat that Lotus' tyres can generate, the higher a position it can qualify in. But, Rain in Spa could throw a spanner in the Lotus's works!

Guess, the latest rhyme heard in Lotus' garage might be....
RAIN RAIN GO AWAY, COME AGAIN ANOTHER RACE, LI'L KIMI WANTS TO WIN THE SPA(ce)!

By the way, Prost is still THE master and year in, year out wins a ton of races on ice. He is number 2 on the all time win list with 36 victories to his credit !!! Immortal !!!

@tommivo

He got his **** handed to him by Yvan Muller, then he went whinging to the governing body and Muller left for WTCC.

Both are equally annoying though.

Freud or any sports psychologist would have something to say about Kimi's comments.
Surely he should be speaking of aiming to win, not just battling for the podium.
Anyway, it will e Grosjean who does it, not Raikkonen

Grosjean is the real deal and will show Kimi who is No1 at Lotus. Kimi became a lucky WDC by watching the Hammi and Alonso history making duel.

Kimi's record on German soil
2001 - Nurburgring - Q9, P10
2001 - Hockenheim - Q8, DNF
2002 - Nurburgring - Q6, P3
2002 - Hockenheim - Q5, DNF
2003 - Nurburgring - Q1, DNF
2003 - Hockenheim - Q5, DNF
2004 - Nurburgring - Q4, DNF
2004 - Hockenheim - Q3, DNF
2005 - Nurburgring - Q2, P11 (DNF on last lap while leading)
2005 - Hockenheim - Q1, DNF
2006 - Nurburgring - Q5, P4
2006 - Hockenheim - Q1, P3
2007 - Nurburgring - Q1, DNF
2008 - Hockenheim - Q6, P6
2009 - Nurburgring - Q9, DNF

Poor Kimi has had very bad luck on German soil, in 15 races there, out of which in all but 2, he was driving for McLaren or Ferrari, his best result has only been 2 third places. He has had 9 retirements in total, out of which 3 came when he was leading, including once on the last lap.
Hope his luck changes in 2012 and he can win here.
