we are only team that will be able to go on 1stopper imo. 33 laps on hards is rather too much imo

FFS Lotus, good idea to let Hamilton fight with Kimi, if they would take him in the lap before he would be ahead of Alonso. And also if they wouldnt **** up the pitstop...

Yeah but it's a chain effect - he got stuck behind Massa and Ricciardo which lost him (again!) multiple seconds on Alonso.

I had the feeling, that Kimi has a problem with the clutch, because the rear tyre was still spinning, maybe I'm wrong.

And yet--with a faster pit he had a great shot at podium. Simple stuff, but you seem content to complain/troll this thread

What? :s I'm not a troll. Yes he had a chance for podium but it's lost now and we will be lucky to be fourth or fifth today.

we should have podium here, if not retarded pit stop we would ba ahead of Alonso (also 5th position would be better to start with... we lost a lot there)

I know Kimi is a sitting duck compared with Button, since the McLaren is 1.2 seconds a lap faster than him, but I have enjoyed that wheel to wheel. Kudos to Jenson and Kimi

He had the pace for absolutely anything, even a win on the softer tyre, but nothing on the harder. So yeah, 6th, is actually about the limit of the car today.

yy. he might have best pace on mediums tbh. He was setting better times than Vet and Ham in the end of stint. But hards are just too hard for Lotus here and temp is too low.

Grosjean has much better pace with hards than Kimi so the problem with hards are mainly on Kimi's side.

Nevertheless, again proof enough why Kimi is one of the best and definitely the fairest racer out there. Glad we already had our win this seasion :)

but although he's yet faster, still gros pace is not that remarkable. It's not much difference to Kimi, Ferraris look better - the same applies to Mclaren

True, but Gro has done over 40 almost 50 laps with these tyres while Kimi only about 30.

Right about that, tyre usage seems not a problem here. Guess, the hard tyre gave Kimi just a bit of hard time ;)

Unlucky start! They need to change somethin defno here.

Doesn't seem to make a big difference with that tyre.

E: Actually it looks like Kimi's tyres were only starting to come alive at the end.

tyres found the temp. Pirelli ****ed up us hard. That's all. Lotus whole season wasnt the best with hard. And here with not the highest temp and easy asphalt it was even more a problem. Heh 0.1 to Vettel best time. Screw this hard tyres
