The headlines about Kimi moving teams for money are so misleading. Yeah, technically, he's moving for money....... that's because Lotus haven't been paying what they promised. Good for Kimi for being composed and saying he will finish the year with them.

Watched the qualifying. Seb in pole, but it was fun to watch him sweat a little in the garage as his confidence in his lap time was sapped by the scarily close time of Nico Rosberg. Very close, and too bad Nico!

Lewis in 5th.

Jenson in 8th.

Kimi in 13th. (Another of my sporting heroes with a back problem. Frown)

Paul di Resta in 17th...
I haven't seen those headlines Scot, but I really don't see anything bad about moving for money even if that was the case! It's his job for heaven's sake!  confused Yes.....I thought about you yesterday when I heard he'd had to have an injection for his back! No wonder he never got through in the qualies! What a shame.....your two best sporting heroes in the same week and both with back problems!  Frown  I wish them both a speedy recovery!

BOOOOORING race. The advantage that RedBull car (and it's the car, not the driver) has over the rest is just insane.

Mark's driving a Red Bull, too. His ended up in flames (nice of Alonso to give him a lift at the end.)

I knew the 'race' wouldn't start until the final 10-15 laps.

Stunning drive from Kimi. If he could have got past Jenson a bit earlier, he might have even challenged Alonso for 2nd. What a pass that was on Jenson, although Kimi - in his usual understated fashion - played it down.

Not a fan of Seb, but I felt bad for him being booed by the crowd. Even Martin Brundle asked them to stop.
Must be lonely for him at the top.

It's odd how Webber seems to suffer mechanical trouble (KERS, gearbox, engine, overheating) far more often than Finger Boy...

Great race from Kimi.....especially under the circumstances! I know I've said it before, but can't wait for Paddy Lowe to get his hands on the Mercedes cars next season!  w00t

Korean Grand Prix

Mark Webber received a 10 place penalty for accepting his ride from Alonso last week.  Rolling Eyes So there's going to be a bit of a dogfight between him, Jenson and Kimi as they are all close together.

Jules Bianchi was penalised for impeding Paul di Resta. Here's hoping Paul can finish a race.

Grid looks like this:

1. S. Vettel
2. L. Hamilton
3. R. Grosjean
4. N. Rosberg
5. F. Alonso
6. F. Massa
7. N. Hulkenberg
8. E. GutiƩrrez
9. K. Raikkonen
10. S. Perez
11. J. Button
12. D. Ricciardo
13. M. Webber
14. A. Sutil
15. P. di Resta
16. J. Vergne
17. V. Bottas
18. P. Maldonado
19. C. Pic
20. G. van der Garde
21. M. Chilton
22. J. Bianchi

Vettel really is a little **** isn't he?

Full credit for Rosberg for responding to his shitty remarks.

Nico is another of my faves:

"I almost stole pole from him and if I had I would have laughed. Sebastian should think less about my balls and more about himself. With comments like that he is running the risk of losing the respect of his fellow drivers."

Fantastic drive from Kimi for 2nd place, although Grosjean would probably have taken him if there had been one more lap. Team orders to overtake him if possible.

Kimi had KERS problem, again.

Mark Webber's car went up in smoke, again. (Thinks it was his KERS.)

Paul di Resta didn't finish a race, again.

Quite the dogfight between Hulkenberg, Lewis, Alonso, Rozzy and Jenson. Some great racing.

Yes......I agree, but turned the TV off as soon as his car crossed the line, as I just couldn't bear to hear all his 'whooping' and see all his fistpumping again! What was it he said?

What an arrogant pr*ck! It's people like him who give Germans a bad name! Pity it wasn't his car that went up in flames! Thanks for that Scot!

Another boring race!  Rolling Eyes Felt sorry for Kimi and angry that the stewards saw fit not to punish Alonso till after the race! If it had been any other team.........
