  1. Don’t agree with the captions: Kovy’s race was memorable… I’ll probably tell the fire hose story in 10 years!

  2. Iceman on fire!! Iceman on fire!! A finn setting a fellow finn on fire :P

  3. Kovalainen’s first lap spin produced crazy amounts of tyre smoke. If he had of continued without pitting, I wonder how bad a state his tyres would have been in?

  4. Of course, few point out that the lollipop was raised
    on Kovi so the fuel rig destruction *wasn’t* his fault.

    1. Not implying in anyway it was his fault, just saying that it’s an incident I definitely want to remember of :D (and certainly will)

  5. I would pay good money for that picture of Kovi’s tires smoking in hi-res. Unfortunately I don’t know how to get it.

    Not my favorite driver, but awesome pic.

    1. Go to Gettyimages, you might be able to find something there with money

  6. looks like I need to work on my link making

  7. What quality and resolution are the “paid for” Getty images, and are they good value for money?

    1. I haven’t found the exact pic I want to buy yet so I don’t know the exact size and price but it looks fairly expensive(possibly $15 USD for a single picture). At that price I assume its a very large size. There is probably a good discount for buying multiple pics though. Which would make sense if you’re posting an album to your website.
