    I also hope that Lewis takes the high road here.
    I actually have hope for him obliterating Nico. 3 pracs, quali, race, fastest lap. That'd be a perfect ending to the season for me.

    That all said, I reckon that going into turn one, ESPECIALLY if Lewis starts second on the grid, Lewis has the edge. Nico must be going defensive and careful in his moves. AS I said - he has everything to lose.

    Lewis will drive for the win as he has all season. Even if it costs him the championship. Not so sure on double points either way though, Think its a stupid mechanic to amp up the final race.

    Dout he will drive into him enough it would be a way to stick it to berni and his stupid ideas.

    TBH I wouldn't be surprised if a backmarker 'accidentally' one [or both] of the Mercs...

    So he doesn't want to advance the sport by including younger generations, although I don't really see how the brands that F1 promotes have anything to do with whether you like watching racing cars, :D

    Another gem from Bernie on F1’s entertainment factor:
    “Entertainment is what people want to see. If you asked me tonight to go to the ballet and said it’s fantastic, I would say, it’s not for me.

    “I just can’t understand the reason why they have these girls dancing on their toes. Why don’t they get taller girls? It would be so much easier.”

    Only the double points system that the teams wanted is "Stupid", the one he wanted is fine.

    :D

    You can tell Maldonado wasn't driving... He'd have hit the truck mid-jump...

    Interesting what Brundle talked about pre quail though with rumours floating about that Brawn is returning to Ferrari.

    Bit of an anti-climax, but well done Lewis

    I slept through the race today (finished a 22 hour working day at 3am) so will have to watch it back during the week, but I know the result. Just caught the end of JB being interviewed on the BBC coverage - is he thinking about quitting the sport now?
