Too close to call. I won't vote because I really don't know, and I don't even have a hunch for it.
The season? Another typical F1 season, with cars so fast and so powerful and so utterly computerized that it is impossible to pass anybody on the track (I mean McLaren passing Ferrari or Renault or a variation of that theme).
It has tuned me out of F1 for the last years. Much better to watch MotoGP (where you get multiple passed in ONE TURN).

Agreed on watching MotoGP. Also been having a look at the German touring car championship and the A1 races. Still, it's been the most interesting season in years in F1 if you ask me. We're in the final race of the season and three people have a shot at becoming world champion - and none of then is called Schumacher.

At the moment, by the way, Kimi has the best shot at the title! :shocked:

Make that Alonso. Didn't he say he'd quit F1 if he won a third world championship? :rolleyes:

Oh, yes, in the sense that it is the last race and the championship is for grabs, it has been pretty interesting. Add the McLaren/Ferrari espionage saga and it has been really different. But the races remain a strategic plot that gets resolved in the Pit Stops.
BTW: That avatar of Deborah Kerr is absolutely outstanding!

It definitely did today! Kimi stayed out for two more laps on well-worn tires and came out the pits, what, three seconds ahead of Massa? Congratulations Kimi!!! :shocked:

Yeah, he made an error or two during the first lap, but there was also the temporary engine glitch when he nearly parked his car. Still... Fun race, great result.

I voted for Hamilton but it's good in a way neither he nor Alonso won it.
