Fantastic to see Lotus and KImi on form early in the season.  I got the impression that Romain was tentative at the start and thus lost some positions, but was surprised to see him barely eke out a point.

I went to work to watch the F1 (11:58 PM Saturday to ~2 AM Sunday).  The last 14 laps I was standing up -watching the TV.  The last 4 laps I clapped and cheered the car/driver to the finish.

 

Good thing no one was around to hear that.

Don't have a tv at home Andrew, or worried you'd wake the rest of the household cheering? :getmecoat:

A bit of both.  We have the TV . . . just don't have cable; so TSN can't be seen.  Also the 3 1/2 year old boy = quiet nights at our house.

BTW.... for those watching on the BBC....

 

What happened to Eddie Jordan? I thought Suzy Perry was pretty good too, a great improvement on lanky Jake.

They said Eddie and his flowery shirts would be joining them later in the series.  Great result for Lotus and Kimi.  Those big Lotus badges on Kimi and Alan Permane's uniforms on the podium can't have done the factory any harm.

 

As it says it says on the Lotus GP website, "If you want to win, hire a Finn."

Chuffed at that. Red Bull were so cocky in the interviews before hand on Sky F1 Channel. McLaren need some serious work doing! There was talk of going back to last years car if they are the same in the next race!

 

Did I see Kimi actually crack a smile....just a small one but definately a smile! I hate to think what he is like today. He's well known to enjoy a party!!

Be interesting to see if it continues - bearing in mind Jenson won the first race last year and ended up fifth in the championship by the end of the season with McLaren third.

 

Not to piss on the bonfire, but opening races no longer mean a huge amount.

Given the old axiom of "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday"  I have to wonder if Lotus car sales will pick up if Lotus F1 keeps winning?

Something tells me todays sales probably weren't so good...  :censored:

 

Amazing win though and a proper one too, none of the major contenders fell apart, Kimi didn't even have the luxury of coasting it from pole. Look like TL have got a good angle on strategy too, let's hope it's the first of many.

What I noticed there was not one bit of radio chatter from his camp. Even in the last few laps when Alonso was circulating at some faster times.

 

Kimi's pit?

 

Nuthin'! :hrhr:

Pit: "Alonso is gaining 0.6 seconds per lap. I repeat, Alonso is gaining 0.6 seconds per lap Kimi. Let's keep it going and try to pick up the pace a bit."

 

Kimi: beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
