  1. Love those trophies. So distinctive!

    1. Those are trophies. Not those main sponsor logo trophies that we see in other circuits

  2. That’s Grosjean in front of Raikkonen, not Gutierrez (the 8th photo from the top/4th from the bottom).

    1. Apologies, have corrected it.

  3. Hey, if Kimi wants to run for president of the USA, I’d vote for him.
