I'm no expert either but could that (Kimi needing more fuel saving than his team mate) be linked to the wrong turn Ferrari presumably made on Saturday with Kimi's setup? I mean, if his car carries more drag because of setup, that would have a detrimental effect on his fuel consumption, right?

Nicole Kidman could not have possibly greeted Kimi any warmer than she did...
And Kimi was like thinking "I dont give a S*** woman, you better let my hand go".

Either he got struck by a "colpo di fulmine" (thunderbolt, love at 1st sight... I would have been in his stead :blush: ), or he`s really cold/cool as Ice Cream.

Well whenever Ive panicked the last two years Ferrari have announced that they are resigning him and his performances have improved ;).

Hi Kimbo! Nice to see you too! Lets see if we get this thread to fly again. It may be Kimis last season, so lets take everything out of it!

Khrm...lets look at the bright side here. Kimi didnt have one lousy point last year after the first race. Now he has twelve. Clear improvement! :D

Yeah I have absolutely no knowledge on this whatsoever, but in my minds eye as a complete layman I'm imagining that pushing to stay close to someone and overcome all the turbulence etc is a lot more (fuel) demanding than cruising around. I can't really see how you can do the former while saving fuel!

I agree, the way Vettel pushed hanging on so close to Lewis can't be positive in any way for fuel consumption. I think Kimi having to save fuel could have had something to do with how the car was setup, just guessing though.
