I've read speculation that LH's M-B contract includes a lot less PR activity on his part at and between the races, which by all accounts he despises, and a future role as a "brand ambassador" for M-B after he retires from racing. Seems contradictory, since both involve pretty much the same bullshit, but nothing about this move makes much sense anyway.

I agree with that last sentiment. Now watch Brawn steal the march on us all next season.

The brand ambassador means a paycheck for life, and "hook up" for everything.

Did you guys see Kimi's dandruff shampoo commercial during the pre-race? Wonder how much they had to pay him to run his fingers through his hair while sitting in his F1 car ? Never figured I would see Kimi doing a commercial like that.

Vettel has the advantage. He only has to replicate strategy of the Ferrari and follow him.
Pressure on alonso, who's not on the podium anyway.

So what about Vettel's pass under yellow? Here's to hoping a drive through delta is added to his race time

Race result is okay. Nice for Button to end on a high and probably good for him psychologically regarding a new team mate.

Championship result? Well I'd have felt a bit disappointed with the result had it not been that Vettel's drive from that spin was worthy of a champion.

Tough luck for Alonso (who I'd like to have seen take his third title in an uncompetitive car). He's still the best driver in F1. The fact that Ferrari didn't win another title is some compensation I suppose.

Good to see Massa do so well. He deserves to be retained by Ferrari until he chooses to leave for displaying such team loyalty.

NOT GOOD !!!!!!......we will be watching time delayed races because they will shift it to prime time, no pre/post race coverage except for a few shots of David Hobbs talking Brit, no P and Q coverage......and Wal-mart, Golden Corral and Ford commercials.....

I WILL be pissed if they time shift.....they [FOX] did on the British GP....

Me: Great ! Let's watch the race....opened the laptop to Speed and saw the results...Phook that.

NBC's new sports channel is what I heard, not the main network. It used to be Versus here.
