Lotus are happy too, they have been patting themselves on the back since a couple of races into the european season. Its going to be tough to beat Alonso or Vettel this weekend.

If the F1 season ends today, Kimi comeback is DEFINITELY a success, 3rd Place in a 4th Place capable car IS an indication of "the" driver factor.
And Lotus SHOULD be happy, next year they will be sporting numbers 7 and 8 is definitely an improvement. Beating a big budgeted Mercedes Team is achievement enough.
Although, I am STILL EXPECTING a win from Kimi and hopefully ALSO 3rd Place Constructor finish from the team. That would certainly move investors/advertisers and money to the team.

The 200 points ahead of Williams stat is a little misleading. I'm not disagreeing that the Lotus is the better car, but I can't help to wonder what Kimi would have done for Williams this year. Maldonado has the pace and has shown the car has the pace.

Sadly, with Pastor's desire to collect other cars in the middle of races and Bruno Senna being so woefully slow, Williams' overall points total is far behind where their car could be.

We're happy he's back too! I hope Lotus keeps a similar livery for next year, and I loved the James Hunt helmet tribute in Monaco, as Kimi is the closest thing to the personalities of that golden era!
