This season was over a few weeks ago, look forward to the season ending its been so disappointing.

Hopefully Merc, Lotus and Ferrari can finally give Red Bull a challenge!

We can blame Pirelli for at least some of this.

Ferrari and Renault actually did a better job designing their 2013 cars around the new tires, then Pirelli suffered a few blowouts and went back to the 2012 tires, which heavily favoured Red Bull.

Evil or Very Mad

I just hate the fact they cannot just go out and race because of tyre management.

This back end of the season has shown a mature Grosjean which is great, really like him.

Now to wait for Mitch Evans to finish his debut GP2 season.

Vettel is good, but he will never be considered the greatest imo until they let them flat out race.

Prost, Schumacher and now Vettel have all won more WC than Senna but you'd have to search hard to find someone who wouldn't say Senna was the GOAT.

Senna had maybe 3.5 seasons at McLaren where he had the quickest car on the circuit. The rest of his career he was stuck in vastly inferior equipment.

The same seems to be true of Alonso. Vettel needed a lot of luck to wrest the championship away from Alonso in 2010 and 2012, despite having a much quicker car.

Haven't watched the last few races. I really wish they changed things up. F1 right now is a drag tbh.

Yeah.

Even the Beeb has resorted to showing shots of The Hoff while the race was going on.

Looks like Kevin Magnussen is getting the second McLaren seat.

Unless Kevin's a much better driver than his father ever was I see this as a major downgrade talent-wise from Sergio Perez.

Confused

Pretty good race from 2-12, Grosjean has finished the season very well. Oh and Maldonado is a tool

Nice piece on Webbers retirement. Sorry to see him go, he was a very honest man.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/25004876

Money talks evidently.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/25020099

REALLY hope Di Resta gets a strong seat next season.

So do I have this grid right (confirmed only)?

RedBull: Vettel/Ricciardo
Mercedes: Hamilton/Rosberg
Ferrari: Alonso/Raikkonen
Lotus: Grosjean/Maldonado
McLaren: Button/Magnussen
Force India: ??/??
Sauber: Sirotkin/??
Toro Rosso: Vergne/Kvyat
Williams: Bottas/Massa
Marussia: Bianchi/Chilton
Caterham: ??/??

So that leaves Sutil, Hulk, Perez, Kovalainen, Gutierrez, DiResta, Pic, and van der Garde as the drivers from this year still looking for a seat.

Sutil, Hulk, Perez, and DiResta are the interesting bunch there. If the financial backing trend continues, I have to believe that Perez will be in one of those Force Indias. No matter which way you slice it though, a pretty good driver is going to be without a drive next year, unless Caterham somehow pops up to take one (doubt it, probably VDG and Kovalainen IMO).
