    Ehhhhh, I mean the result was epic but he literally had to crash Lewis and Alonso out of the race to do it.

    Hoping Rosberg's engine grenades itself on the last lap.

    I wish he'd become a permanent commentator. His guest commentary on the Australian practice sessions is fucking hilarious.

    Rosberg shoulda just pulled a Senna Suzuka 1990 move and aimed straight for Hammo in the first corner.

    Lewis playing games now. Love it.

    Also, Webber sucks at interviews. And talking in general.

    So many kids upset about Ham doing what he could. Participation trophy generation.

    Next season will definitely, hopefully, bring a shakeup to the running. Mercedes has had their three years of utter and complete dominance. Sad to see JB retire through failure at his last race. Good for Felipe to finish in the points. Hopefully, Stroll is impressive next season as is Stoffel. Good for HAAS to make an impression, especially with Grosjean, in their debut season and good for RBR to see continuous improvement over the course of the season. Williams has seemed, at least to me, to regress although Bottas is a rising star.

    I'm happy for Nico for winning the Championship, even if I am a Lewis fan.

    Lewis needs to stop being such a cunt about losing points via mechanical issues
    that's the nature of racing, shit happens

    Nico won, end of story - congrats, move on to the next year

    We couldn't have asked for a better finale. Fun to see Seb on a charge for once. I'm not a Ferrari fan but I support Vettel so hopefully they get their shit together next year, but I don't think it's possible for that team. In for RBR dominating and Dan/Max battling it out while Lewis cries after every 5th place finish :x:

    F1 needs better camera angles to "show" the speed

    Nascar, indy car, rally etc all have those angles where you can actually feel/see the speed - most of the time on F1 broadcasts they are just following the cars around and you dont get a sense of how much faster the cars are relative to the environment

    more static angles, especially around corners, and more in car footage
