    It’s a tricky one, the Halo probably saved him during the accident but looked to have stopped him getting out if the car had caught fire afterwards. Wasn’t nice to hear him over the radio saying he unable to get himself out.

    Charlie’s brother, Nick Whiting, may have been a slightly dodgy character. Brinks MAT robbery connections, stabbed and shot dead, body left on Rainham marshes.

    Well there’s no way Mercedes would’ve beat Ferrari with a Lewis/Nico paring taking points off each other.

    Good to see Lewis keeping his focus after clinching his title. He’d dropped his level a few seasons ago & didn’t come back firing on all cylinders (pun). He knows he has to stay right at the top of his game now with Ferrari & possibly Max biting at his heels.

    Today’s podium looks like being next season’s title challengers!

    Hulk clarified afterwards that it wasn't the halo but being up against the barrier that prevented his exit. The exhaust did ignite the bodywork, which accounted for his being keen to depart. I imagine full tanks on lap one would definitely grab your attention....

    It's amazing how quickly you stopped even noticing the HALO device after a few races. Wasn't sure at the time whether it stopped him getting out that's why I said 'looked like'.

    I have watched Formula E a couple of times and it is as interesting as Scalectrix to watch. The cars bounce all over the place and you don’t get much of a sense of speed.

    That’s because there is no speed.
    Or excitement.
    Or sound.

    You are probably correct w.r.t. a Nico vs Hamilton partnership. But what they would have done is reduced the number of Ferarri wins and there would have been more 1-2s which would have taken points off Ferrari.

    Next year should be closer at the front, but it could be that the midfield falls away a bit again as the rules have been changed, which generally benefits the resource rich teams.

    Seems like anyone who handled that gold ended up getting bumped off?

    Or marrying one of Ecclestones daughters and becoming an out of nowhere billionaire gold trader all of a sudden?

    Cunning Stunt that. Got to hand to it 'em.

    I thought Sauber had done better than that but on checking it appears only half the team managed to perform.
