    Personally, I'm glad this season's over.

    Not wanting to take any gloss off Vettels achievements - which are many! but Ferrari & McLaren should be ashamed of themselves for allowing Red Bull to be so dominant over the last half of this year & turning the Constructors' Championship into an "also ran". McLaren for deciding to bring in a new & untested suspension setup (no wonder Hamilton left) & Ferrari for delivering an unbelievably **** car that meant Alonso had to apply all of his race craft and drive out of his skin just to compete for podiums. For 9 races now, it's been a case of as soon as Vettel hit the front, the race was as good as over. Mercedes can be forgiven somewhat because they're still a relatively new outfit and had a new driver to look after as well, I'll be expecting much better next year though.

    The FIA need reaming for withdrawing the ability of the drivers to actually race each other over the length of a typical race - this year has been a season of tyre preservation (apparently by their direction) & the car that didn't lean on its tyres as much as the next, won the most! it was a recipe for disaster & has ruined the viewing experience imho.

    Good Riddance to 2013, the sooner 2014 starts the better.
