It is almost unfair really. Vettel and that RB monster are simply hard to beat. Had Alonso had 4 more laps... But he didn't, I was really hoping for Vettel's gears to fail.

Crossing our fingers for big change in 2014.
Just like back in 2009, since then the usual giants Ferrari, McLaren, hasn't won a championship. But we also created a new giant, RBR.

I was a huge Mick Doohan fan but even then I got sick of watching him win race after race and championship after championship. Schumacher's dominance was also beginning to take the fun out of F1 until FA and Renault found a way to beat Ferrari. I seriously hope RBR's run is coming to an end. This season looked like a toss up for the first half, but now it seems to be a done deal. The big engine changes for next year might help, but if anyone can find a way to make the cars go faster with those engines, it'll be Adrian Newey.

Its all down the design and hard working of the RBR team in Milton Keyes, UK.
I know. The nissan comment was just a dig at RBR. but you see my point I mean come on there's an infinity logo on the Nose of their f1 car. Someone in RBR want you to buy an Nissan right?

Hehe...they want you to buy overpriced Nissan - Infiniti with Sebastian Vettel version.

Yah....Nissan-Renault-Infiniti saw the success of RBR. And jumped on the bandwagon to promote Infiniti. psh~

Next couple of years will be a big yawn? Nissans?

Um, the rule/engine changes next year will throw lots of variables into the mix. So basically the exact opposite of your post.

Relatively boring race. Really needed some rain.

Next year would be much more interesting if Red Bull had hired Maldonado to replace Weber.

That remains to be seen. The usual suspects will be at the top because Resources/Money = results.

Yes Nissan........................... or Renault if you want to be technical.

I think the engine regs and Mercedes wanting everything "in-house" will make it a relatively more even field next year

I was hoping someone would've had a picture here of that damn person waving that flag in front of everyone during the trophy ceremony. That was damn annoying. (And I wonder if they'll impose a rule on flag poll height next year).
