    The blue button on the left clearly reveals this is Kimi’s steering wheel…

    I take it the “Fail” setting won’t be used much?

    Kimi’s wheel has the ‘smile’ button? Looking forward to seeing the bananas being deployed too!

    great touch, giving the buttons alternate names. would be even better if this was their official naming system.

    I wonder what the Jenson button does… (Seriously, I didn’t get that until I typed it out.)

    Mum!
    I love it!
    Hard to imagine the Kimster having a mommie, though.

      Maybe a reference to Kimi at top 3 drivers press conference at Barcelona ’12 where he only wished happy mother’s day to all mums (in Finnish). That was all he had to say in Finnish after finishing third :)

    The Smile button’s a bit harsh…
    I like the Finishing Position selector too. Great stuff.

    Why does it have a “Tweet” button? Kimi isn’t on Twitter!

    Lol, this is brilliant! I’m really beginning to love the Lotus team.

    Was that on the car at the actual launch?
    If so, they absaloutely have to use it at melbourne just for a laugh

      Just imagine it…
      Lights out! And 21 Cars head to the first corner-…
      Oh, no… Kimi’s car seems to have stalled.
      Wait, no. He’s just sat there, frantically pressing the Ice Cream Button >_>

    My favourites are the Jenson button (even Mclaren doesn’t have one of those) and the “open gate” dial

  11. Lauri (@f1lauri) said on 29th January 2013, 7:48

    But where’s the “just give me more power then” button is? Maybe that’s the Jenson button ;) ?

    following Kimi’s offroading in Brazil, they’ve added a SatNav to the car.
    At least the engineers won’t need to tell Kimi where to go.

    Hahaha this made me chuckle! Open Gate is my favourite.

    Grosjean’s version has a Hazard Warning button function for 2013. Defaults to ON until lap 3.

    LOL “JENSON” button
