A year ago some speculated that Sony will become the big sponsor because the MP4-26 was launched at the Sony Centre in Berlin. Coca Cola was speculated too….7th December 2012, 19:13 at 7:13 pm #214737
For me the comeback of Kimi was a highlight this year. I missed him for his funny team radios.
The other Highlight was the race in Brazil. A unbelievable exciting race, really.
I’m glad to see the USA making a GP at a permanent raceway. The USA GP had the most successful race this year. And I think the Formula 1 needs a GP in the USA, lets hope that the teams and B. Eccelstone share my Opinion. It is a must2nd December 2012, 14:11 at 2:11 pm #217709
The first races were not normal. The Pirelli tyres changed the results. Even Maldonado won a race. This is why Alonso was sometimes faster than Vettel. As the teams understood the tyres Vettel was better, maybe because he had a car which is under normal circumstances faster. Maybe this was given because the Updates at the RB worked very well. For example at the beginning of the year RB had problems with the exhaust but at the end or middle of the season the problems where solved. While RB brought working updates Ferrari failed to deliver. They tested one front wing at many Fridays until it worked. I’d say this development race was won by RB. And this is why Vettel was so strong in the second half. And since he understood the tyres Vettel was faster than his team mate.1st December 2012, 13:45 at 1:45 pm #217679

There were many things this year:
2. de Vilota
3. Hamilton leaving McLaren (I heard it while lunch. It was really shocking me. I never thought that he will leave McLaren, it is a pity.1st December 2012, 11:22 at 11:22 am #217664
I think some of you will hate me for the sentences i will write now.
Bruno Senna had enough possibilities to show that he is a good driver. But every time he showed that he is not a top driver. This year he was beaten by Maldonado. I think the Sponsors should stop buying him a cockpit.
To Kobayashi: In Q he was often faster than Perez. Perez looked good this season due to the tyre gambling. He demonstrated that he is a good driver in many races. It would be a shame if he will not get a cockpit for next year.
I think Lotus will rethink their decision to keep Grosjean. He caught my eye more with his bad races than with his good races.;)1st December 2012, 10:01 at 10:01 am #216708
1. Hamilton / Alonso / Vettel -> all three are able to drive a car at the limit.
4. Kimi R.
6. Massa -> he struggles at the beginning of the year but at the end he was quite strong
7. Webber -> this year he lost not that many qualifying against Vettel
8. Kovalainen -> he made the best he can with this car
9. Glock -> many times a half second faster in Q as Pic
10. di Resta
