    Some cars will take to the grid. The two Mercedes will absolutely rocket ahead of everybody else because they are over a second and a half quicker than anything out there, and nothing exciting will happen because it’s Abu Dhabi.

    Double the points, double the action.

    Just pick any Moto3 race from this year and you’ll be entertained. However, I am unable to find a video to a full race on YouTube, so I’ve picked this instead: an epic duel between some excellent IndyCar drivers. This year’s Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix is a good shout too.

    The one with the most points will win the championship, hopefully not due to double points. This season has put me off both drivers though so I don’t care which one takes it. Either would be a worthy champion.

    Well it varies. Some of them (the awful Santander ones from earlier in the year) clearly didn’t weigh much or look as if they cost much to make, whereas I assume some like the Hungarian GP one cost far more and weigh more too.

    @OmarR-pepper simply copy the URL into the text box and it comes up automatically.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eE3gCy5zvM is the vid you want.

    Also how about this for a qualifying battle?

    Nobody will be on the same page as Mercedes at Abu Dhabi. On paper it just screams the perfect Mercedes track (as most do), it’s Hamilton’s to lose but it will likely come down to reliability. Just bring the car home in second place and that will be sufficient. I wouldn’t risk going all-out for the win.

    I still think Interlagos is as much a one-off as Austin, it’s just that my initial expectation about its tarmac was turned completely upside down (I expected it to be too oil-y to be as quick as the 2007-2013 surface, and it is somehow the opposite).

    I think Interlagos was in part a one-off too. The high track temperatures and the brand new surface was producing a lot of grip. Saying that, Jenson Button felt that the new Formula One cars were the most powerful he has ever driven at Interlagos, due to less power lost at altitude. As Keith pointed out in the Stats & Facts article, every session last year bar the race was held in the wet so it is hard to judge, but they certainly were not slow here over one lap.

    Are you talking about original circuits? Because I always liked High Speed Ring. Apricot Hill is another track that I do enjoy, although I don’t really perform well on it. I love the challenge that the Circuito de la Sierra provides, at a mere 27km long.

    As for tracks which I do not like, I never really liked the Seoul circuit, thankfully it isn’t on the current game. I’m not a fan of any of the ‘mini’ variations of the original circuits too.

    I think Button said at the Australian Grand Prix that year:

    If anybody wants to make a movie about Formula One, now is the time to do it.

    It’s one of those fairytale seasons really with lots of controversy too. It would make a good film I feel. Quite a few seasons would.

    Six road races, five street races and six ovals is a fantastic mix, especially with just one double header this year. Compare that to Formula One which has eight Tilkedromes, three street circuits and other low-mid downforce tracks which are generally a good mix, and the Hungaroring. For the sake of us Europeans I am glad that there are just two races which are on at crazy times in the morning. Next season should be fantastic!

    Sato showed speed last year but he was far too crash-happy. Hawksworth will learn a lot but I expect the youngster to demolish his team mate. As much as I love Sato, he simply is just too inconsistent and error-prone. He always has been.
