Lotus MUST try to qualify as high as possible in Singapore with Kimi and run longer between stops. The races after Singapore will play into the Lotus' hands - Japan, India, Abu Dhabi and even Korea. Austin will be new for everyone.

One DNF/really poor finish for Alonso would open up the C'ship for everybody. And with safety cars not unusual at Singapore, you never know.

Seven races to go. Everybody else will feel the pressure as things get nearer to the end. Raikkonen for the Championship.

Keep dreaming Boullier. You've already blown your best chances this year namely: Bahrain and Hungary. As the season goes on so your chances of winning become less and less...Lotus will not win a single race this year - said it at the start of the year and saying it again. Kimi too slow in qualy, Grosjean too stastruck, Boullier too ecstatic to be second. This bunch should have been all sacked after somehow losing in Hungary when they had about a second a lap advantage over everybody even Mclaren

just shut the fook up motor mouth Boullier. you are an embarassment to your team and the paddock. the comments u make most of the time are cringe inducing.

Will not forget what they at Lotus were trying to force feed us about the expectations of the car performance from before Germany, now logic says believe them only when it (things) happens/materialize.

Everyone keeps saying that another DNF for Fernando will open the championship up again, but don't forget Kimi hasn't had his DNF this year like the rest of the championship contenders. Then again, any of them may DNF. This championship battle may last to the final race.

A DNF for any of the top drivers who are in with a chance for the championship will always have consequences of some sort but it will not affect all drivers the same, the points position as is, the least it will affect is Alonso.
