CONGRATULATIONS

TO


L E W I S
H A M I L T O N

for winning his 4th World Championship!

This year, IMHO, was his best season in his F1-career.

(and this from someone who is definitely NOT a Hamilton-fan)

Well, unless surprised, I do not see how Hamilton could not be world champion this year.
warspite1

Even I'm starting to believe its going to happen

But it only takes a retirement in this race and suddenly it starts to feel like 2007 all over again. With Lewis, as with Nigel, it ain't over 'til it's over

Watching Lewis is like watching Nigel.... they really put you through the wringer!

But at the end of the day, he got the job done - again!

Well done Lewis Hamilton - a 4-time World Champion . Wow that sounds soooo good to hear and write. Never easy, the car suffered damage in the incident with Vettel, but he didn't panic and drove through the field doing what he needed to do

Excellent, hard but fair racing with Alonso at the end which caused my heart to stop a couple of times but it all worked out okay

Lewis, I love you, I want to marry you and have your babies

Super job to Lewis and Sepp for a great rivalry. Mr. Hamilton is the top British driver in F1 history. I guess it's up to the Queen as to when we can call him "Sir". Maybe now he can give advice to Lauda. ;)

I'll leave the last word to Fernando Alonso (who many consider the best of the current drivers). Alonso was asked whether he regarded Hamilton as one of the five greatest drivers in history.

"Yes," the Spaniard replied. "In F1, every single season he has been very competitive, apart from one or two with Jenson (Button) when he had some issues. He was able to win with a dominant car, with a good car like 2010 or 2012, or with bad cars like 2009 and 2011. Not all the champions can say that."

All I know about 'Grand Prix' is that Avalon Hill wanted to bring out a game with that title, but stopped when they realized how a 10 year old boy would pronounce it to a saleswoman.

Good start to the weekend from Lewis - and on a track he has often not been entirely convincing on....

So, can Lewis break his unwanted record of never having won a race in any season after he's been crowned world Champion?

What an amazing season for F1 fans.

I hate for the year to end on a sad note, but the hacks at ESPN have bought the rights to the USA broadcast for 2018. No more pre-race rundown or commentary by Davis Hobbs, Steve Matchett or Will Buxton. I'm sure that ESPN sportscasters will wonder why no one kneels during their national anthem or that there are no transgender drivers.

Oh well...

I trust everyone will be voting for Lewis on Sunday (though would accept your votes for Sir Harold of Kane).

Interesting...

The FI 'bible' Autocourse turned up and first thing to look at (as always) is the Top 10.

Lewis is rightly No.1 and Vettel? No less than No.4. Seems a little harsh, although Baku was totally ridiculous.

No.2 was Verstappen (which I think is the right call) but No.3 was Ricciardo who I would have swapped with Vettel.

Well that's testing over.... now to the actual racing in just 2 weeks time!

What has testing told us? Well as ever its so difficult to tell much that's concrete. What seems clear is that the Ferrari is quick, as is the Red Bull as is the Mercedes - but the latter seem concerned about their performance on the softer tyres?

As for McLaren, they go from one challenge to another - its not the engine this time of course, but the reliability of the rest of the car. What has happened to this once great team?

Honda actually got their engine working fairly reliably for most of the test and it will be interesting to see what Toro Rosso can do with this. Apparently the Honda is still under-powered though.

Roll on Melbourne

Less than 0.3 seconds between the top four cars in Free Practice 2. Rain expected for the "quali" and there's this:

https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/headlines/2018/3/arrivabene-and-horner-clash-in-press-conference.html

Nice quip by Toto, “First of all, I didn’t see any gentlemen in the room when we discussed it,” .

The new "roll bar" addition to the cars looks like a visibility issue waiting to happen.

Stateside, ESPN has taken over broadcasting F1. I'll miss David Hobbs, Steve Matchett, et. al. Hopefully ESPN won't complain that F1 has no transgender drivers

Melbourne race - my city! i used to work right next to the track, - though i watched it from home this time, would have been nice to see Daniel Ricciardo get a podium but fourth was i felt not too shabby. I havent watched F1 for years, but am interested in it again - interesting seeing how different the cars are now - so much bigger they seem then say back in 2000 when i was last watching the season.

I thought the Halo looked awful at first but now i dont notice it, what i didnt find so atractive were the shark fins - fortunately they seem a bit smaller now than in previous years.

Whether he was unlucky or not has nothing to do with whether one likes the guy - he was incredibly unlucky.

Of course whether one feels sorry for his misfortune does depend on one's feelings toward him.

Yes, a shame for Ricciardo - one of the most likeable of the F1 drivers around

Apparently the software that Mercedes has used for 5 years let them down. Toto said the algorithm calculated that Hamilton could slow for the VSC and still beat Vettel out of the pit. (I still feel good about the mission, Dave)

Haas unfortunately has no excuse for their pit crews. The cars looked as fast as Red Bull until the foul up.

Also unfortunate that the girls holding the pre-race position numbers have been pulled. WTF!

Couldn't they make the "T" bar in the Halo out of fighter cockpit glass so that the drivers could at least see through it?
