    It was fair.

    1. Well, they did their best…

  2. Thank you, Keith, for bringing us this incredible website. I enjoyed it all year and I’m looking forward to another year of insightful articles.

    Best wishes for 2017 !

    1. Couldn’t agree more. The difference in quality between the fantastic articles of F1 fanatic and the sensationalist gossip of, say, Planet F1, is enormous. Great job F1 Fanatic!

  3. I want to say goodbye to 2016 with a poem

    Ferraris are red
    Flags are blue
    Leave me alone
    I know what to do

    And to all a great 2017

  4. I never really thought much about the WDC getting a trophy and I can’t recall ever really seeing it or knowing of it through the years of following the sport, but since Nico won it I have seen it all over social media and f1 websites. It’s actually spectacular how many times I have seen Nico and his trophy posing absolutely everywhere… so in 2016 drawing to a close I would like to thank Nico for making me aware there is a indeed a large WDC trophy.

    1. Possibly not unconnected to the fact Nico now has a bit more spare time.

  5. Well done Keith, what would we do with out you!

    1. Yes, my thanks for your efforts. It is websites like yours that make F1 far more interesting than it would otherwise have been. I suspect I would have walked away from F1 if it wasn’t for forums like yours.

  6. Great year, great season, and great website. Thank you Keith, for my favorite F1 site.

    And while I wish everyone a Great New Year, let me leave you all with my favorite quote of the season….

    “I suggest you guys let us race”.

    GO LEWIS!!!!

  7. Rosberg jumping out of the car is the funniest pic i have even seen in F1.
    Looks as if he has taken off of the car via a seat ejection button.

  8. Agree, that is an amazing shot.
