Nah no reactions, just my wish is all.

 Alonso has to be fave now placing third on the grid.  Webber and Vettel both need McLarens help or each others to win.

Poor decision from Ferrari to pit Alonso when they did.   I got up early to watch it live and at the time I was thinking  "how the hell is he going to get passed all this traffic?" 

Alonso never once looked like getting past the Renaults.  Webber looked less competetive than that.

I thought that at the time, but the drivers who'd changed tyres under the Safety Car were recording faster times after 7-8 laps than the ones still on soft tyres, so Ferrari were screwed either way. If they'd waited a few more laps, they still wouldn't have opened a big enough gap on Rosberg and Petrov, and they risked Webber getting in front of them.

As it turned out, the soft tyres recovered after a period of degradation, so Ferrari might have been OK if they'd held on, but they weren't to know that.

Biggest problem was the track design - overtaking was all but impossible, especially since the Renaults had a top-speed advantage, so Alonso could never get close enough to Petrov to outbrake him.

I thought there might be a chance that Massa could make a difference after the pit stops, but Alguersuari moved over for Webber and then held Massa up for the rest of the race.

Altogether a disappointing finish to the season - not that I cared particularly about the result, more the fact that it became a procession, which must have been really frustrating for the title contenders and their supporters.

To be fair to this season, only the first and last races were the boring ones, I enjoyed the others.

I watched this final race on iplayer and one thing summed it up for me was Alonso chastising Petrov at the end of the race - hey, Fernando, he isn't your bitch team mate so he doesn't have to move out of the way, you'll have to use your 'superior driving ability' to get round him.

Seems F1 could be going back to 4 cylinder turbo engines in next few years, 100cc larger capacity than last time -- 1.6 litre LINK  8)

Watch MotoGP far more interesting than F1. No one does it better than Valentino Rossi.

Looks like Robert Kubica might not be fit for the new season - shame, as Renault were looking competitive in testing.

Kubica seriously injured in crash

hope the arm he broke isn't the one already with titanium rods after an old crash ... could  slow the recovery a bit & maybe put super licence in limbo

FFS --- what a moaning twat lewis hamilton has been at Monaco 2011 --- crashing into & pushing other cars off in a split second too late manoeuvres .. cars which were AHEAD of him on the track then complains that they should have let him past and then claims race stewards are treating him harshly ... the twat treats F1 like rallycross sometimes ... you have to laugh :clap:

I have to agree he is a bit of a twat. After saying that I thought he had a point today, Massa had lost the racing line and cut him up. Being a moaning twat he does get the harsh decisions, but that's his own fault.

Great GP had an anti-climax with the late crash though, was really looking forward to the three way fight in the last ten laps. Can't see the season going any other way than Vettel.

he got 1 penalty for hitting massa at the tight hairpin ... pushing massa into webber in the process ... massa had nowhere else to go imo
other penalty near end made no difference ... 20secs added to his time when he'd lapped next place car was nothing worth complaining about .. changed nothing!
