More like Brawn than Red Bull, somebody to really shake it up.

Interesting bit on Honda's V8 engine: http://www.racecar-engineering.com/a...LeULvk.twitter

Very pornographic.

Saw an interview with Newey, he was talking about the 2014 rules and said you could end up with a car with a huge gap ahead of the rest... He had a disconcerting smile, kinda like the cat that swollowed the canary!

another one in the record books.

and in recap from before the season started:

will the changes to DRS in quali change the way the race unfolds?

did not seem to at all

will Ferrari build on the success of this year?

perhaps a little... still the bride's maid

will Lotus continue to be nipping at the heels of the big three?

at first it all seemed good, then lack of money and perhaps the tire change just made it fall to bits

will Hamilton win a race in the Merc?

seems like he did! but then he was pretty sad faced for most of the rest of the season

what about Hardly Racing Team..... will they be back?

they were not... but their brake rotors must have been on eBay and other short of cash teams bought them

did Hulkenberg make the right move?

I guess he did... but now it looks like he's back to Force India

will McLaren regret Perez?

I suppose in a way they did, since they fired him at the end of the season. Doesn't seem like they gave him a chance though & that McLaren was a dog...

and for the Vettel fan who shows up and favors us w/ his orange text... congrats. It was a good season to be a Vettel fan.

Unfortunately yesterday it reminded me of how much I disliked the Schumacher era.
I'm afraid the Vettel era can last even longer!

Yes because he is of equal talent, younger and has an has good/better team with better/good people all around him. I think the haters will be hating a long time!

He was probably thinking about the way the Brawn kicked his ass.

That was cool to watch. I wouldn't have bet there was room in the cockpit for his helmet though.
