Im all for the move (to Ferrari) but its not as if he needs the money. He was on record for being one of the highest paid drivers when he wasn't even racing! That was when Ferrari had to buy him out of his last contract.

I wonder whether the Infinity deal will ever come to pass. They have known that a cash infusion would secure Kimi. It did not happen. Kimi waited, then left. I think Lotus may be scrambling for funding next year, which is too bad, considering the fact that they have demonstrated you can run a very competitive team on a far more modest budget.
They should be able to sign Hulk.
