    Not a very accurate depiction of the season I’m afraid.

    At least 2/3rds of them should be of Vettel’s Finger.

  2. This compilation is devalued by the lack of Rowan Atkinson!

    Would love to see Webber giving Alonso a ride at Nurburgring on this list :)

    Though it’s a great selection, love it. Sums up the season nicely.

    I have two fantastic shots from Abu Dhabi which I’ve edited, they’re not really like.. Season summaries though, they just look awesome. :P

    My favourite has to be the two McLarens side by side at Istanbul. Just quality!

  7. I knew the podium in Interlagos was different – the F1 logo is partly red, whilst it had been white up to then.

  8. Alonso fending off schumacher that was classic professional driving.

  9. There was no maginetic contact between the two cars.

    Great pics.
    I just read that Bruno Senna will drive for Williams next year.
    The news come from a important radio station of São Paulo.

    those first laps at hungary were amazing. very tight both seb and lewis on the edge. i think seb was starting to feel the pressure. then lewis span, his own fault and his chances went out the window. had he kept cool and won it would have been a different story.
    after the summer break vettel smashed them all categorically and i thought: wow this guy truly deserves this wdc

    For me the best picture was Heidfeld’s car on Fire, of course nothing bad happening to him, but the picture is amazing.

    It’s amazing. All that drama and those wonderful pictures boils down to a rather placid picture of all the drivers looking very relaxed and professional at the end!
