Quali didn't go well he was really looking good for a strong position. Only Redbulls were faster than him hopefully on race trim he can make good step forward

Just read that there is a video on Youtube 'whatwillkimidonext' that shows Kimi signing a contract & then saying sh-h-h-h, while grinning. :) Someone said that it may be a sponsor contract but the other day he said he has not signed with Lotus for next year yet. The announcement will be made on Kimi's birthday, 10/17/12.
This might be considered a little out of character for him to have this kind of fun with this with his fans & the media. :)

I think he will sign with lotus. for lotus is also endorsing that video on youtube. and why would he transfer to another team. if you look at it, he is fighting for the championship, he hasn't suffered reliability problems.he is consistently scoring points. strategically they have committed a few errors, he is enjoying his stint at lotus. and lotus would be a fool to let him go with 2/3's of the team's championship points coming from him. my 2 cent opinion.
