    ....it may be much worse next year for the petulant little boy....and that crying could well be a season long shrieking whine...

    ...and speaking of real tragedy Kimi done blowed up his engine in qualifying...but the good news is Lotus has an engine "ready and waiting" ( there was a comment in the story about Lotus calling it a GP winning engine...now whether that is hyperbole or they do have something really special will be known pretty soon...lets all hope the latter is true and Kimi makes the pole later this morning :tu..and then takes the race tomorrow :win....)

    So was it exciting?

    Thank funk it's all finished until next year. Is it 20 races in a season? If so can't they just do them every third day.

    Yeah exciting as funk, lovelovelove it - if all goes according to plan I'll be tweeting & forumming live from Monaco end of May 2013!

    Classic Kubica  O0



    Holy cr*p that's fast!  Hope he gets back into F1 sooner rather than later.

    As for Brazil, very happy Button won, less happy that Vettel won the title.  I still haven't  quite managed to work out he went from so far back on the first lap to being in the top 10 only a couple of laps later.  For me, the most poignant part of the whole thing was the close up of Alonso, still in his helmet, just after he had got out of his car.  The camera focussed just on his eyes and the bitter disappointment and hurt in them was really striking.  He deserves better from his team, and I hope that Ferrari really pull their finger out this winter and produce something properly competitive.  The same can be said of McLaren - their reliability this year has been atrocious.  With the addition of Perez, Button becomes the undisputed team number 1, so I hope that they will build the car for next year around his driving style - whereas in the past he's had to compete with Lewis orientated set up, and also, Perez has (I think) a similar, go easy on the tyres driving style.  So hopefully McLaren can also take the fight to Red Bull properly next year... 

    And at some point, Vettel's luck has to give... Doesn't it?

    Dancing, we all saw that look - I wanted to climb into the TV to give him the biggest hug ever. One could also see the moment he mentally moved on - and that makes him so strong. Yeah, he deserves better. I'm a Button & McLaren girl, and JB deserves better too, but Alo was the best this year.

    I hear you, I mean Mercedez have been struggling. There is loads more $ to be had for Ham over there, but if I know anything about F1 dudes, and most top sportspeople it's that $ do not compensate for not winning... #Whining

    Potential sting in the tail?  Looks like Vettel overtook under yellow flags which, if found guilty, would see him get a 20sec penalty, therefore demoting him to 8th and giving Alonso the title.  Have seen the video a few times, and it looks fairly clear cut  to me that Vettel's been a bit naughty and may need to cork the champagne.

    yep, it was a little bit strange as there was no obvious reason for these yellow flags and I also think that things like that might happen in tricky conditions like that - but anyway, as F1 generally is very strict in enforcing it's rules he should have got a penalty, yes. What McNish says about Kobayashi going to the pits does not make any sense by the way

    I saw that on Twitter, people were speculating during the race already, I was kinda holding my breath the whole time, not knowing if they were going to announce a drive through/whatever, but then after there were quotes from various people saying it was yellow AND red lights, which has different rules to yellow light only. I couldn't watch the clip, wouldn't load on my phone, gonna try the laptop.

    PS I have to say I hate when this happens - it's just not the same as when somebody wins on the day - if something comes of it, and Alonso gets it in the end, good for him, but I just find it so blah blah blegh.
