It seemed a little bit strange to me watching Kimi starting third and finishing third in Spa. He always has been a master in this circuit and I thought he was the favourite to win here. But than first Hulkenberg and then Schumacher overtook him and ruined his afternoon. However in the last 5 races he managed the podium four times and now he lies fourth in the standings, 33 points down on Alonso. So it is a very good comeback for Kimi. He can still win the title.

Going nowhere? End of story? Perhaps.
But this is the third time that I recall comments of this sort being made, and at season's beginning it was revealed that Kimi had exit clauses. Since I don't hear Ferrari saying Alonso is going nowhere, or McLaren saying Button is going nowhere, it begs the question, is this posturing on the part of Lotus? I suspect so and that Kimi will likely return. but it is not a certainty, and not "end of story" as they would have us believe.

With Boullier as the team manager, I take that to mean he's staying stagnant and not making any progress. They should have at least two wins at this point in the season already.
