Seriously hope Lotus build a very competitive car out of the box for 2013 with base of this year car since regulations mostly remain same and get the result very early in the season probably two or three victory so that Kimi can challenge for title. This season they were really very conservative which made victory elusive.

walrus. yes. the rumour has been around for two weeks. force india deny it, and say they will have their same two drivers next year. so, it may or may not be true. but i think that hulk deserves a better drive.

if your 3rd in the driver standing on an inferior car how can that be an overated driver? if he is on a faster car and he is way behind in the standings then that is being overated.

Over the years I've noticed a serious lack of objectivity from those who comment when it comes to rating drivers. I suspect the age of a large portion of those who comment is less than twenty. I see a lack of maturity from some of the Crashnet com-mentors.

I am glad to see Kimi back in F1. If he gets his hands on a decent car he may well win a championship, once again.

Happy for Kimi, his return can definitely be labelled a success yet I think people should give credit to the Lotus team too. They're not world beaters yet but they've been doing a really good job together in a difficult context. Too bad they couldn't get that elusive win when they had the potential but that's still a satisfying season with all things considered.

I will admit I was never a KR fan at first just due to his flat personality during interviews and such. However with his return, he has changed my opinion. He gets on with the job and it was really a no brainer for both sides to renew contracts. Lotus are for sure a team rising back to the top challenging RBR, Ferrari, and McL.
