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.

The reason I talk to myself is because Iím the only one whose answers I accept.

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.

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...

@#*&%! Time Warner AKA Spectrum - didn't record the race even though I made sure it was scheduled.

I had to watch the quali and race highlights on Youtube.

Yeah, the RACE was interesting but ESPNs coverage Suc*d.

I don't know if they had an intro program LIVE, but they didn't when they re-broadcast it later in the day. I relied on that stuff to get 'up' on the latest developments among the teams.

Felt bad for Haas...felt worse for me, since ESPN was running commercials and never recapped what happened until later.
