Hungarian Grand Prix: Thursday press conference - Pt.2

Kimi, last week there was some Twitter chat between Lewis and your team, a photo postcard of you and Roscoe, Lewis's dog. Are you aware of that and what is your opinion of it?

Kimi Raikkonen:
It's the first I've heard of it. I don't have a Twitter account, I don't have any other things. I don't really have a comment.

You weren't the man putting #where'sRoscoe on the side of the car?

Kimi Raikkonen:
(Sighs and points to the team's PR man)

Q: (Peter Vamosi – Vas Népe ).
Lewis, what is the difference between Nico Rosberg as a teammate in GP2 and Formula One?

Lewis Hamilton:
I wasn't his teammate in GP2. I was his teammate in go-karts. It was more fun when we were in go-karts, that's about it. We're both older and wiser and yeah, we don't play as many games and kid games and all the silly things you do as a kid. He's more competitive now than he was back then.

Q: (Heikki Kulta – Turun Sanomat).
Lewis, if Kimi goes to Red Bull, would he be an even harder competitor for you than he is now?

Lewis Hamilton:
I think Kimi will always be one of the hardest competitors here. He's a fantastic driver, he's got great experience and he's constantly proving his abilities and I think whatever car you put him in he's going to be a fighting force in the field and of course he's doing a great job at Lotus, they've done a great job this year and over the last couple of years. I think whatever he decides either way, he will have a strong car and I just hope that we're competing with them.

Q: (Joo Gabor - Index).
Kimi, we can divide your Formula One career into two; which one have you enjoyed most, the first one to 2009 or the second one now?

Kimi Raikkonen:
I don't really count it as two. I did something else that I wanted to do between them and then obviously I wanted to race again. It hasn't really changed much. Obviously the team's different but I've been in different teams in the past and every team has a good side and some things that you are probably finding not that much fun. Obviously when you have decent results you have more fun that if you have bad years. I would say that is very similar, more or less the same people, same stuff. I have no real difference between earlier teams and how it is now.
