    I've just remembered when Kimi was just about to complain about strategy when they told him he was behind Bottas until it was explained to him that Bottas had always been the Merc in front of him LOL

    Being as Hamilton had been closing him down for 33 laps, and he would back been getting constant updates it, it does make you wonder what planet he is on.

    He is still quick (guess who scored the fastest lap at the last race?). As Bill Boddy says, he was brilliant, particularly in 2005 and he's kind of fun ... and his interviews can be interesting

    I like Kimi because he seems to be blissfully lacking the Trump-size ego and narcissism that seems to afflict about 90% of the participants in every professional sport, including F1.

    Why Kimi has fans ? He speaks his mind as though he does not care but has impact and its not PR rehearsed. His idol was James Hunt who tended to be outspoken ..he has not got Hunt's womanising antics though

    Don't know the back story but I guess the little is crying after he learned his idol crashed and was out ... then Kimi took him under his wing

    Yeah it was on the main feed. When be went off the little lad was crying his eyes out. Looks like someone from Ferrari went and found him and Kimi came and talked to him about half way through race. Was pretty classy to be honest. Wasn't just a quick visit too as you saw him later with all the Ferrari mechanics under the podium.

    Good stuff.....although......expect lots of parents trying to get their kids to cry at grand prixs from now on.

    I was stood on Woodcote Corner at Silverstone in 1996 when Schumacher went off on lap 3. The roar from the British fans at that moment was ground shaking. In front of me, a little lad in a Ferrari shirt burst in to tears and asked his mum why everyone was cheering about Schumacher going off. He couldn't understand it.

    Mind you, it went deathly quiet 20 odd laps later when Damon joined the DNF club.

    I'm glad for the Finn, it's been a long time coming. His lap was really perfectly done and looks like he could have gone a little faster at times. Is Kimi the more senior driver of the grid?

    8 years, 11 months and 6 days since his last pole, beating Mario Andretti's record of 8 years and 18 days between consecutive poles from 1968/1976.

    And celebrated in classic Kimi style:

    "Pole, Kimi, Pole. Well done."
    "Good."

    Titch Raikkonen was slower during the first stint, when the gap between him and Vettel was at 1.3 Sec. and during the second stint, when Vettel came out ahead of him and increased the gap to Raikkonen to 13 Sec. before the safety car came out.
    Verstappen should be the rightful man to have taken P3 then too, because Red Bull made the same error as Ferrari.

    Raikkonen was utterly pissed off in the second stint, why should he put himself out for a team who brought him in at a time when they knew he would come out into traffic?
