ummm okay. Like I believe that. Looking forward to seeing Gro Go, Kimi will be pulling in the points but hes got about nil chance of taking Lewis in the championship, unless something bad happens at Merc, which probably isnt going to happen.

Nil chance of beating Lewis? There's something like 11 points between 3rd-4th-5th. He has every chance of beating Lewis, I wouldn't be surprised if both Webber and Raikkonen catch him.

Ferrari's head of aerodynamics for the last four years, Nicolas Hennel de Beaupreau, is leaving Maranello and is expected to return to Lotus, where he worked previously.
Mark Slade, engineer Kimi Raikkonen,
the pilot should follow to replace Rob
Smedley (announced at Williams).
Finally Jarrod Murphy, head of the computer-aided design (CAD) in the field of CFD (computational fluid dynamics) in Enstone will also go to Ferrari, after 17 years of loyal service. This is James Allison who wanted his arrival, as he pushed the recruitment of Dirk de Beer.

I think it's fair comment that Lotus in general will not be catching Mercedes, either constructor-wise or per individual drivers. The Mercedes is looking like a stronger car and if anything will be stronger still (relative to Lotus) in the remaining races, with their tyre problems mostly out of the way.
