Congrats to the team and Seb - a nailbiting last race and one of the best seasons I've ever seen. I won't be opening any champers... I don't like it....

Was a crazy race. Always felt Vettel would hold on even when in 20th. Watching his race cam was fun.

I was going to create a thread to see if anyone else's interest faded this season. Maybe Red Bull's comeback and subsequent domination made it boring? Or the fact that we knew a Brit wouldn't win it?

Very happy to see Vettel win. Shows his character to keep it together during the events of the race - crashes and poor tyre selection.. A very worthy champion.

Great to see Schumacher concede position to his sucessor in his last race. Schumacher is an absolute legend and got zero air time - overshadowed on this occasion by the race for the title..

On the flip side i'm sure a turbo charged v6 will still sound very nice even at limited rev's and i just wonder and hope! that a turbo charged engine will bring about some interesting racing. I assume they are a lot more efficient which means less fuel, lighter cars and possibly a totally different approach to tyre strategies.

I think 2014 will be interesting. Can't wait for march the 17th.

100kg of fuel as opposed to 150kg if i recall correctly, turbo spinning at 125,000 rpm the new V6 will out accelerate the current 2.4 V8 by some margin.

Wonder if it would be anything like the v6 turbo Honda supplied in the late 80's

Interesting mix of modern downforce with that engine
