Amazing final race.

I would have liked Alonso to have won because I think he's driven a great season in a car that wasn't up to it, but fair do's to Vettel. He was a long way behind at the mid point of the season.

Well done too to Caterham for pipping Marussia at the end for 10th.

My mate is saying that Vettel passed Kobayashi on the way to the start line passing 3 yellow flags?

Anyone?

Nah it was all legit.
They were solid yellows which means slippery track and not flashing yellows which means a yellow flag zone.

She certainly knows her MotoGP stuff. Dunno about F1. But she's a very competent general presenter anyway so she should do fine.

I saw though that the BBC have rejigged their 10 live races. No Monaco, USA, Singapore or Abu Dhabi. And still no live coverage until race 3 of the season. Also, Sky have moved their last pre-race ad break. On races where the BBC are doing live coverage, Sky won't have an advert in the 1 hour before the race starts (ie while the BBC coverage is on). They must have noticed from stats that people just switched over to the BBC to carry on watching the build up, and then stayed there. Clever observation on their part.

A bit of toty like sky does....mmmmmm we`ll see

I hoped they get rid of Ben Edwards. He shouted over DC too much and didn`t get it right a lot of the time. Doesn`t know much history / rules etc
