Congratulations to Renault for taking home the manufacturer's title this season in Formula 1. All in all, it was a very interesting race and alot of changing strategies due to the safety car making a few appearances. Can't wait to see some action from next season's 2.4 litre V8's.

Renault sucks. The only reason Alonso won was because his teamate held everyone else up. Kimi would run a good second faster than Alonso as soon as they were on a level playing field. Renault only did well because Mclaren had a good amount of bad luck. Kimi is so much faster that I am dissapointed at the year end results. But oh well. Next year will be fun.

That is one of the hardest tracks in the F1 schedule to pass on. Especially with the new areodynamic requirments. Look at the last 5 or so lap times for kimi. They were much faster once fisichella got out of the way. Then he threw in the fastest lap on lap 56 or so to boot. I am just saying Renault wouldn't have won if any of the other teams kept it together. I mean even Williams started looking good at the end of the season. That is pathetic.
