    – 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.

    @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.



    Best Driver: Vettel (overall, no-one’s had a perfect season)

    Worst Driver: Karthikeyan

    Lewis Hamilton Award for Best Rookie: Perez

    Yuji Ide Award for Worst Rookie: Maldonado

    Best Team: Sauber (seriously, did anyone expect this?)

    Best Overtake so far: Hamilton on Alonso, Germany

    Best Funny-moment so far: Button in the Red Bull pits and the marshall falling in Canada

    Takuma Sato Award for Erratic Driving: Hamilton

    Most Surprising Result: Kobayashi 5th in Monaco

    Least Surprising Result: All of Vettel’s wins

    Best Grand Prix so far: Canada

    Worst Grand Prix so far: Valencia

    Season Rating: 7/10




    There’s a slightly more basic problem, which is that Hispania are currently operating out of Colin Kolles’ base in Germany. That’s why they’re trying to get use of Mercedes’ wind tunnel as it would be more convenient for them.
