– The title walkover. No-one seems able to string together enough great weekends to beat Vettel and Red Bull. Hopefully someone will take the fight to them next year.
– Hamilton for making stupid mistakes.
– Massa, Heidfeild, Petrov, Senna, Barrichello, Trulli, Webber, and Kathikeyan for being a bit rubbish.
– Sauber for slipping back
– Mercedes, Virgin and HRT for going nowhere
– Williams for being crap.
An honourable mention to DRS. It was hailed as technology solving the problems technnology caused, but the fact remains that there is a problem. People want to see racing, which isn’t necessarily overtaking. I think it’s like taking the goalkeeper away in a football match – there will be loads of goals, but will the match be better? Really?
Oh, and they TV deal, but I’ve accepted that now and I’ll stump up for Sky. It’s left a bitter taste for British fans this season, though.17th October 2011, 23:44 at 11:44 pm #182797

@Magnificent Geoffrey I’ve seen Karthikeyan being interviewed a couple of times before and he seemed friendly enough. I suspect being 24th has something to do with the lack of attention, although that is stating the obvious.
I can see Alonso being pretty short with he media at times, although I can’t remember what he was like in his 05-06 championship years. Trulli maybe? He’s such a contrast to the very personable Kovalainen. I don’t know, I’m speculating now.12th August 2011, 12:02 at 12:02 pm #175514
