    well deserved win,Reminded me of Nigel Manssel with the union flag gives us Brits something to be proud of. Like him or not still think it is a shame Nicos season ended the way it did. Hope to see J B again next season and would be nice to see Paul Di Resta back as well

    I just cant see it happening.Luca Di Montezemulo wanted Ferrari to be an `all Italian`team and that doesnt work.It`s just chaotic.Get the BEST people in,no matter their nationality,and go from there.
    You definitely need British expertise in there and some British reserve.I love Italians but they are just too passionate about Ferrari and their hearts rule their heads.
    Agree with all the Jenson comments but Ron Dennis has no compassion whatsoever,or loyalty,so I think J B`s F1 days are numbered but 15 years in F1 is one helluva career.I think he`ll be racing Webber in WSC next year.Good luck to him.

    Gotta agree with everyone, brilliant win for Lewis, apparently his decision to move to Mercedes was helped by some insider info at the time I also though it a mistake - how wrong I was.
    I'm also saddened by the loss of JB, he's outperformed K-Mag all year and driven that dog of a car to better positions than it deserved, I think it's frankly disgusting that they have likely let him race his last F1 race without the chance of any celebration - I will never forgive them.
    Seb to Ferrari, an interesting move, from a poorly performing Renault powered car to an equally poorly performing Ferrari, it will be interesting next year, although there are rumours (denied at the moment) that a certain Mr Brawn may be returning to Ferrari - which could make it as genius a move as Lewis to Merc.

    Ferrari need to take urgent and decisive action if they stand any chance of being in the top teams in F1 in future. Ross Brawn would make a lot of sense if he would go and be given a free hand on how to manage the team.

    Lewis has matured as a person this year, especially in the latter half of the season. A good guy, great driver and with a good team.
    Vettel has been overshadowed by his team mate and jumped ship. I wish him luck at Ferrari, I think he will need it.
    As for JB, probably my favourite current driver, vastly under-rated by people who just see the superficial aspects of speed. He is a top man in every respect, let down by a poor car. In each team he has driven for in the last 11 years he has outscored his team mates. Deserves better than Ron Denis. Ron's decision making is the only thing slower than his cars!

    Great news that JB has kept his seat at Maclaren!
    He is a great ambassador for the sport and a great guy, as well as a superb driver.
    With Alonso and Button they now have two of the best and most intelligent drivers around, and I look forward to next season all the more!

    I would say Maclaren and Mercedes are equal first: In my view Alonso and Hamilton are the best drivers, though Button beats Hamilton in every department other than finding the absolute limit in wheel to wheel racing...... But in my book that makes Hamilton the better driver.....
    I know you can't really compare drivers from different eras, but Senna had it all: The wheel to wheel racing but also the ability to analyse race situations and react to maximise his chances. I don't think anyone has equalled him since, though Alonso comes very close.
