A couple of months ago, I would have been surprised by this news. I felt he would be moving on. But the music stopped, the better seats were taken, and that was the end of the story.

Still, not a bad seat to be in, all in all.

LOL some of the Kimi haters on here are so desperate !!

But yes, he is too good for Lotus but he has taken them to the upper reaches and obviously he has beaten LH, JB, MW in the standings in his much slower car.

He is not in a top 3 team because He does not want to go back to Macca, with 160 days of sponsorship every year, Luca di of Ferrari and Herr Helmut of RB don't like him on personal grounds. That's the reasons. Silly,javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':?') but true.

Currently being 3rd in an obviously 7th fastest car, then LOTUS should get him back.
Haters are always here for kimi due to the fact that WEB, HAM, BUT, and MAS are beaten by Kimi in an inferior car.

And it makes me laugh when some say the reason they don't like Kimi is because he doesn't give long answers in interviews. He doesn't seek approval or go on and on with his answers. And THAT is their reason. No mention of his ability, speed, fairness on track, etc. LOL

I'm glad that Lotus have a different view and have re-signed him.

Thanks and I have another couple of questions.
Is the extension binding on the team and particularly Kimi like Vettel's Redbull contract or have they both extended it voluntarily?

Would they allow Kimi to quit F1 if he would like to?

Still beat teflonso and lulu in a slower car for the world title, THAT WASN'T DESIGNED BY NEWEY UNLIKE THE CALAMITY BROTHERS NEXT DOOR LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even a rookie Vettel would of won the WDC in that McLaren since it was in a league of it's own for the majority of the season. It was a Newey design and a Ferrari rip off IN ONE, AND NEITHER OF THEM COULD WIN THE WORLD TITLE IN IT!!!

I know which drivers are overrated, one is going to a midfield team in Mercedes and the other is about to get fired by Ferrari if he keeps trying to delude to the whole planet that he is driving a rust bucket. Even Pat Fry thinks he is talking BS and that he should driver better rather than blaming the car!
