I hope the Kimster won't have another damage limitation weekend, I hope he will be fighting at the front. If he finishes 6th or 7th, and Fernando wins, it might be curtains for his title hopes.

I was under the impression because of what Lotus was feeding us that the Lotus car was going to run away (alla Red Bull last year) from the Belgian GP onwards and that everybody and his dog were supposed to have been trying to catch up with them.

well they better aim higher because their car has a nice potential. How much does a team earn in scoring a point? and considering they got a lot of points this year courtesy of KR. then at least they should give him a better car to drive for the rest of the season and the next season as well!

It's not so surprising considering that Lotus-Renault were lucky if they could even get one of their cars through to Q2 last year. In addition, the Marina Bay circuit is known for being excessively tough on brakes due to so many second/third gear corners, something Lotus have had problems with during pre-season testing. Fortunately, the Lotus has consistent race pace and even if qualifying doesn't go their way, believe it or not, it is possible to overtake on this circuit. I just hope Kimi can collect some good points from this race.
