  1. Not a very accurate depiction of the season I’m afraid.

    At least 2/3rds of them should be of Vettel’s Finger.

    1. Ahh rats! Beaten to that joke! You win teh internets! :p

    2. Oh please!!

  2. This compilation is devalued by the lack of Rowan Atkinson!

    1. Here you go

  3. Would love to see Webber giving Alonso a ride at Nurburgring on this list :)

    Though it’s a great selection, love it. Sums up the season nicely.

  4. Kobayashi at Monaco…best picture of the year!

  5. I have two fantastic shots from Abu Dhabi which I’ve edited, they’re not really like.. Season summaries though, they just look awesome. :P

  6. My favourite has to be the two McLarens side by side at Istanbul. Just quality!

  7. I knew the podium in Interlagos was different – the F1 logo is partly red, whilst it had been white up to then.

  8. Alonso fending off schumacher that was classic professional driving.

  9. There was no maginetic contact between the two cars.

  10. LOL keith. those car nets aren’t used to keep the cars dry! haha. they’re parc-ferme nets.

  11. Great pics.
    I just read that Bruno Senna will drive for Williams next year.
    The news come from a important radio station of São Paulo.

  12. those first laps at hungary were amazing. very tight both seb and lewis on the edge. i think seb was starting to feel the pressure. then lewis span, his own fault and his chances went out the window. had he kept cool and won it would have been a different story.
    after the summer break vettel smashed them all categorically and i thought: wow this guy truly deserves this wdc

  13. For me the best picture was Heidfeld’s car on Fire, of course nothing bad happening to him, but the picture is amazing.

    1. @tiagocomodoro Doesn’t beat Kovalainen in Singapore last year. That was something special!

  14. It’s amazing. All that drama and those wonderful pictures boils down to a rather placid picture of all the drivers looking very relaxed and professional at the end!
