    As a FERRARI fan, this is the best possible ending to this season.

    Now I just can't wait for the next season to start and our very own Singapore F1 GP!!

    BMW Sauber and Williams under investigation

    FIA has choosen not to impose any sanctions, but McLaren is expected to appeal....

Alonso came in thinking he was a star, but got unsettled when he saw the rookie outperform him. And then all the trouble started. And the team lost the plot after that.

    We should all get together and have a toast to the 2007 season. Totally unpredictable. Super

    I can't wait for the next season to begin. I'll only go to Sepang if all the brothers and sisters at ClubSNAP go together to watch the race.
    Thanks asterixsg.

    oh yeah... Kimi delivers when he needs to. he doesn't need to push so hard in the early stages of the race. just drive cooly and make sure the car is preserved. the scorching heat of Interlagos can't even force him into an error.

    but when he's in front... bye-bye to the rest of the field. a true champion... he really deserves it

    it also serves as some kind of aerodynamics element to the wheel area. Ferrari is not the only team which employs this... i think either Toyota or Renault have similar elements on their cars in the previous races.

    i thought the dream first corner take-each-other-out between the McLaren drivers is going to come true. wah... my heart almost skipped two beats back then

    but Hamilton did a wonderful job in fighting his way back from 18th position

    read it on BBC that the racing stewards decided against imposing penalties on Williams and Sauber. if both these teams are disqualified... then that would be an anti-climax to one of the greatest ever season in F1... 2007 would be a real farce.

    the WDC is won on a disqualification and on stolen technological information. that would be real sad for F1 fans.

    what a cliffhanger of a season finale. Ferrari kept their cool and McLaren were struggling all the way. my dream result came true... Kimi to win the WDC by 1 point. it can never be scripted better. with all the criticism against him throughout the season, people writing him off the championship, he kena car failure, etc... he kept his cool, talk little and drive fast to clinch the WDC. it's poetic justice...

    and talking about equality for both drivers in McLaren... i think they got it. both ended the season with the same points and both did not win the WDC. now how equal can that be? sorry lah to McLaren fans... i just have to say this

    anyway, congrats to Ron Dennis and his team for putting up a real fight to Ferrari and taking the title decider to the last race. see you guys next year.

    Now, I also believe that either Alonso or his team purposely slowed him down to 4th place. conspiracy theory
    they felt remorse after the spying?

    This morning a friend msg'd me "Do you know that FIA is investigating the 3 cars ahead of Hamilton ? Its related to fuel irregularities..."
    My first reaction was "NO WAY !!!"
    Then I realized, it was too late for FIA to do anything. At the most, they will fine the team and let off the drivers. At this rate, Alonso and Hamilton should've been disqualified too when the team was thrown out of the constructor's championship.

    There's so much 'behind the scene' politics in F1.

    f/5.6 @ 400mm should be more than enough lah. when i do panning shots... they're mostly in f/8.

    last night's race was worth staying up late.... there's a lot of drama right from the start.... in the end, the better team won...

    better luck next year LH, as a rookie, you couldn't have done better!

    I fully support Raikonnen to win rather the the bad boy Alonso.

    Hamilton have all the time in the world to win at least 2 to 3 world titles.

    For a rookie who have never drive in most of the circuits is already a winner itself. Very rare to see a rookie finish in the top ten, let alone he is runner up for 2007.

    Congratulations to Ferrari fans. Time for celebrations and waving the red flag!

    Even if FIA will to impose sanctions, it will be on the drivers and teams' points., eg dock points. Don't think they will void their race result.

    Hamilton have only himself to blame. He blew it from the start. Day dream and allowed Kimi and Alonso to overtake him. Ferrari are not well known for their blistering start and yet, Kimi can overtake him, so Hamilton must be sleeping....even 4th place Alonso managed to pull along side him into turn 1.

    I think Massa did a great job as a team player. Blocked Hamilton and then controlled the race pace.
