    's alright I like Vettel. To be honest I'd be kinda excited after a drive like that.

    I have no problem with it but can imagine some PR/broadcasters/sponsors freaking out about now.

    ... and the world stops turning 'cause someone says "fuck" on TV... :lol3
    sad


    but what a brilliant win!! yay KIMI :clap
    unreal drive by Vettel. I wanted JB to hold him off, but there's no doing it.

    Maybe the new hot ticket is to start from pit lane with a different transmission setup etc

    I know the source isn't unimpeachable, but I really want this item from Kimi's Wikipedia page to be true:

    "Later in the year, he and two friends entered a powerboat race in the Finnish harbour city of Hanko while wearing gorilla suits. Again, he raced under the name "James Hunt". They then won a prize for the best-dressed crew."

    Kimi wins, Vettel proves he is the best driver, and Hamilton has to walk home.


    Couldn't ask for anything more than that.
    Great race.
