    +1 Booing is part of life and human history. The world of corporate PCness has to just put up with it. They are all compensated hugely by $$$ anyway - why are the powerful whingeing about it so much - its just feeds the flames! Its one of the very few things that Bernie cannot control! Its not only on the podium either...

    Interesting problem for F1 drivers. Next year's engine is going to be heavier than expected. As a result, drivers' weight is going to be important to lap times.

    Among those likely to be affected are such notables as Jenson Button, Louis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Button is trying to get the drivers association to pressure for a higher minimum weight for the cars, so that larger drivers like him aren't penalized.

    Sure looks like a Red Bull romp is coming. Ooph.

    Steve Matchett was blathering on about how Adrian Newey was such a good designer that rules changes actually favored Red Bull. That Newey was better than anyone else with a clean sheet. He claimed that the longer a given set of rules were in effect, the more other teams would be able to copy Red Bull's advances and match their speed.

    I'd say he's right. Except that all the evidences proves he's wrong.

    :lol3 I guess Vettel isn't holding our attention, eh? Nor that of the Koreans, who seem to be indifferent to the "circus."

    Roll on 2014.

    In all the years that I've followed F1, I've never looked forward to the end of a season before.

    Good race as long as you're not one of the many Vettel-Haters. Kimi, from 9th to 2nd! :clap I like Vettel, but he is not to exciting to watch, the best never are, smooth as "black ice" as they disappear from everyone. I remember seeing Roger DeCoster the first time in the flesh and thought.......he ain't that fast. Right until I got to see him flying past mere humans.
    Looking more & more like 4 in a row. :freaky
