Fastest lap in the race on the last laps, when the tank is almost empty, counts as much, for the real race pace of the car, as the wheelie does for the bike (i.e. for the fans only).So to bring here fastest final laps as an argument is pure BS. Nothing less !

@cassyo~ Alonso was pushing like mad on tyres seven laps worth fresher than Kimi's and Kimi puts in the race's fastest lap towards the end is certainly not BS. Most drivers talk about getting nervous or easing back etc. All so easy for you and I to put these guys and their actions down though or be dismissive. However those that appreciate it, we value a racer who drives so fast, even at the end of a race, taking a risk and adding to what was an exciting race. No safety car was a bonus too.

Exactly Tippi, if it had been a stalemate with everybody cruising for the checkered flag, then fastest lap at the end of the race would have been meaningless. But with Alonso doing his ultimate best to catch up with Kimi and snatch victory, the fact that Kimi was able to answer in such as way was speacking a lot about the lotus potential.

Let's go iceman, show them how it's done!!!

Quote of the day: A relaxed kimi is a dangerous Kimi.
There is so much truth in those word.

It is great to see Kimi driving like the champion he is. Unlike Alonso, he tells it like it is and he doesn't just say things to play mind games with the other drivers.

There were a number of great drives during the race but Kimi was the standout.

well this a race. there are factors that affects your team's chances in winning the race. and the team that can adapt quickly will be the likely winners. if you say that your team or driver has a faster race pace, then why didn't they won it last Sunday? and the fact is that lotus and kimi did an excellent job in handling all the situation that were needed to win. they had a good driver, a good car for that race. it is as simple as that.
