Possibly the toughest circuit for the Renault powered cars, Kimi collected another 10 points, looked after his car and moved into third in the standings. Twelve races in and he is still in the hunt. He is giving the team a lot, they should really be looking to give him something 'extra' at this stage.

Calvin, that could be a bit of a dillemma, the six races Grosjean hasnt taken the chequered flag in, Kimi has scored 76 points (Alonso led the championship after six races with 76 points), KR has also scored 86 points in the last six races (more than anyone else) and has an option in his contract at the end of this year.

This isn't the toughest track for renualt, maybe cosworth but all the power is equal between the big three because in 2009 FIA allowed Ferrari and Renault to tune their engines to have equal power to the mercedes. the lotus top speed were among the fastest in a straight line for example kimi and jermone recorded 342kph down the straight yesterday. some Renault cars only suffered because clearly they didn't have the low downforce package required for this track

bossmani. no. there is a power difference between all the manufacturers. merc has about 20bhp more than ferrari and renault are a further 10 behind. as for cossie, i beieve that they are about 50 behind the merc. however, renault gain on torque.
and then there is the gearing. rbr are down on speed (using drs) to lotus, because they gear their cars for max without drs.
