    Nice race, impressive Perez, Vettel getting a bit childish.

    I haven't been paying attention to F1 lately. What caused this?
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    That was just a joke I made because the week before, at Spa, Jensen got a revised aero package which was quite a big improvement and Hami didn't get it. He was very open about his anger over it and went to tweeting some info about the wing. The following race(week) there were a lot of cold shoulders in the garage...that's why I made the joke.

    So he was being his usual immature self... just not in that specific way?

    Didn't Hamilton have the option of the wing and not use it?
