I loved the Spanish Grand Prix. Every lap of it.
I jest not. I loved. Every. Single Lap.
You may ask why, with the world at large seemingly set on berating another race in which tyre strategy played too large a role. I hope I can go some way to explaining myself.
Earlier in the weekend I had a fabulous conversation with a driver in the paddock. I didn’t record it as it was just two friends chewing the fat, and he probably wouldn’t want me to quote him anyway. So please forgive the paraphrasing.
“Mate, everyone is complaining about the tyres. But the guy who wins… does he complain? No. You should ask them why they don’t complain when they do well, when the day before they were saying it was the end of the world. The only one who understands it is Kimi. He says it’s the same for everyone. If you don’t like it, fuck off, do something else. He’s right. If you make the tyres more durable and you only have three stops in a race everyone will still try to make only two stops. It’s the same now as it was with Bridgestone. You always try to do one less stop. By complaining you only damage the sport. It’s the same for everyone. Get on with it and race.”
I loved the opinion. I loved the candor…
Great piece Will Buxton just wrote for his blog. Go read the rest!
GUYS FANGIRLING NICK HEIDFELD AGAIN
I am done with this man
FUCKING THANK YOU EDDIE
the funny thing is Kimi did less stops but was on the softer compound for three quarters of the race
that just shows how good the Lotus is with the tyres
I mean just look at the little tiny future champions
when i see kimi and fernando racing each other i just get loads of feelings
just like old times
Right we’re still gonna get black and gold on the podium ok
why are we still having headlines of Kimi not being particularly bothered about something happening or not having a comment on how something will affect something.
isn’t it just expected?
he lives in the present and thinks about the future only when it happens really
i made some gifs cause they were needed
I AM DONE WITH EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW
