Onto more interesting things...

Bild newspaper are reporting that Ferrari have offered Kimi a drive for 2014.

They claim the offer, “more lucrative” than what is being promised by Red Bull, was made to the 33-year-old on the Thursday before the Hungarian grand prix.

Bild says Red Bull's offer is a $15 million retainer, performance bonuses, and sponsorship of his motocross team.

Good ole silly season never fails to deliver.

I can't really see Kimi going back to Ferrari unless the offer is just too good to pass up, meaning highest paid driver with bonuses.

Lotus seems the best fit for him personality wise. Redbull would definitly be interesting in a Kimi vs Seb weekly topic.

Actually Hamilton's record on this track and it's similarity to Monaco, were clear indicators that Lewis was capable of victory. Tires were a question mark, as was the temperature, but with strong work from Mercedes, Hamilton's skill was allowed to come to the fore.

The Kimi to Ferrari story is nonsense. There is a better chance of him going to Red Bull (or even McLaren) than a return to Maranello. Seriously ... I see Ricciardo at RB and a possibility (though very slight) of Mark Weber renouncing his retirement to join Alonso at Ferrari and Kimi staying at Lotus.

Why don't you put the Ferrari news comments on the Ferrari news article?

I don't see why Kimi would want to go there anyway. Those lazy italian engineers have been spending too long sunning themselves on siesta by the looks of things. Perhaps Ferrari should spend some of their wealth paying half-decent engineers instead of FIA officials.

Anyway back onto point: will this be the first F1 race winner's trophy that Hamilton will be allowed to keep? That will be kind of special for him.

To be fair to Bedpan, the Ferrari story was a little slow being published.

The strategic manner in which Kimi was forced out of Ferrari so golden boy Ferdi could join was disgraceful. This is just the rumour mill in full flow.

Back on topic, Mercedes have shown good pace all year, the obvious issue being those dastardly Pirellis. The hard work has paid off and I hope both Lewis and Nico can bring the team to the top - if not this year, next year for sure.
