Love the interview:

DC: Kimi - your first victory since the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix. Tell us about your emotions at this time.

Kimi Raikkonen: Not much really.

This about sums up the race.

And I agree, we have to make up a

"Just Leave Me ALONE! I know what to do."

and

"Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, I am doing all the tire work. You don't have to remind every second."

+1 Funny as ever. I did catch this too along with the other funny quotes. He should also be called the FunnyMAN besides the ICEMAN.

Looks like the Degree works, Lotus in 4th and 5th. Good job.
Grosjean will move down 5 position for a gearbox change.

Well, that summarizes it, pretty much.
I do hope for interesting race tomorrow...

Hulken-who?
I was trying to see if Hulkenberg was on the medium compound tires. I forget how he did in Q1, Q2, & Q3.
And why doesn't Grosjean come in and get tires?

Watching with my 7 year old daughter. She asks, "Papa, the cars don't have a roof. How do they race in the winter without roofs?". Lol. I love her.

In all fairness to your daughter, I bet a raindrop/ball of rubber/bit of gravel/junebug hurts at 200MPH.

Well, Felipe Massa did get a cracked skull and falling into a coma after surgery, after having collided with a damper spring that came out of a Brown while traveling at 160mph+ in 2009...
