Some pretty boneheaded stuff, but a much better "last third" race than the beginning. Loved that Lewis wanted that black Stetson.

I enjoyed the race. Good stuff going on. And I agree with the Stetson. Lewis got one before and obviously liked it.

I was at the track for qualifying. If you ever get to a chance to go to COTA - I highly recommend it. Fantastic facility.

It looks like they might loosen the off season engine (I can't get used to saying power unit) freeze rules.

If they don't, and if Honda's engine isn't up to speed, 2015 will be like this year – total dominance by Mercedes.

Did anyone see Bernie's comments?? Apparently Formula 1 should be geared towards wealthy 70 year old men and teams should make do with their budgets, when they don't it's a similar problem that ladies with credit cards have. Oh and social media isn't relevant.

Honestly... I just laughed. He's so out of touch.

In case you want to own part of Caterham (I'd have bought one of the wheel nuts but they were all gone by the time I looked):

Hahaha that is awesome. If I hadn't already bought my husband his Christmas present I would get him an exhaust manifold.

The guy must be senile. Most 70+, wealthy or not, are not going to buy a new Rolex or change their bank to UBS. Maybe Bernie should get Tena as a sponsor?

So: what do we bet on?

Hamilton #1
Rosberg #1
It all ends in tears, ala Senna and Prost in Japan?



I am leaning toward Hamilton, myself, I just can't get behind Nico for some reason - and I never could get behind Senna again after that collision.
