    Am I the only one who thinks that Jenson Button "does protest too much" surely if he found that his brakes were not working he should have pulled into the pits for some repair, likewise being told not to use 7th gear, imho they should just use pit boards

    Default End of Year Report

    Well that was almost an interesting finale to decide the championship

    Jenson got a nice send off

    I cringed every time the presenters mentioned that Susie Wolf was pregnant, she seemed a bit embarrassed.

    I found the whole program (and series) disappointing as the small teams hardly get a mention, they need the air time to help with their sponsorship, it seems to me that the Germans get most airtime and they don't even have a grand prix.

    Apart from the final one at Hockenheim on July 31 2016 that Lewis won you mean

    I don't recall seeing Susie Wolff recently on the Sky coverage

    One change for the worse on Sky is that Martin's gridwalk is down from about twenty minutes to ten to facilitate the national anthem line-up

    The cheer from the stands for Jenson was quite moving - were the Brits all there to salute him rather than Lewis ?

    I hope so. I've thought it amusing all season that Lewis thinks he's the favourite British driver!

    A fond farewell to both Button & Massa.

    Sorry I should have said for 2017.

    I don't watch Sky, I only watch via Channel 4

    Probably there for Jenson, it seems that neither the pseudo German or pseudo Englishman are greatly loved by the indigenous population, I found it to be strange experience not caring who won.

    Got it in one Geoff! I can't doubt Lewis's ability or the stoic approach of Rosberg this season but neither generates that fizz of excitement that Button did. And as for Mansell. Well I have never forgotten the raw excitement and passion of mansell-mania that i first experienced at Brands Hatch in '86. I remember butterflies in my stomach watching Grand prix starts back in those days. Long time since I have felt that.
