That was all rather entertaining wasnt it? Not often you see f1 cars going as slowly as possible, but interesting tactics none the less.

The usual winners rostrum once Maverick has collated & posted all the results, then the thread reverts to off season chat until the end of January when the new season game starts.

Congratulations to Topper, Blatherskite & Norm & thank you ALL for playing this season.

And of course thank you to Maverick for organising the game every year!

Many thanks and congratulations to Blatherskite and Norm, it was close at times, unfortunately I was not able to check results just now, Maverick must be up to stuff as I just get an error. We have just returned from rubbish clearing at Formby Beach National Trust, 5 full bags of well some indescribable items, well on this public forum in any case.

What is the secret of my success

But the TV direction was appalling, cutting away at inopportune moments to random bints in the garages.
Ah! The beautiful people!

Loved Hamilton's antics .... most entertaining part of the entire Season.

Ah, you need multiscreen.

When I were a lad they were called the pits (a few were passable though).

He's very much a Family man, so why not?

Hamilton, Button et al put F1 before all else.

Each to their own!

No problems with that it was just the shock announcement that was the surprise so soon after winning, has he slept on it?

Now the shock of hearing the big news about Nico has worn off a bit - wtf do Merc do next season for their secend driver? Most of the decent drivers are retired or contracted for next season.

Checo might be a possibility.

Errm, I suspect Mr. Button might be smiling inwardly ....... all through his Career his timing has been impeccable.

Available. Talented. Relatively cheap.

What's not to like?

Firstly he has a 2 year ambassadorial support contract for next year with McLaren, secondly he admitted he was relieved he was not driving another race, thirdly, I think his homemaking instincts may have finally kicked in, but hey what do I know he could change his mind, but I doubt it, although Lewis would definitely not want Fernando

Yes, but he's not anywhere near the right calibre.
.....but as a team mate to Hamilton, suitably nurtured I think he'd improve. However, at 30 years old perhaps he's a bit long in the tooth...
