  1. Really good selection this year!

  2. I really enjoy the CapComp on this site.
    Great to participate, and even better to read the funny inputs by fellow racefans.

    I’m glad it’s back after it went AWOL for a full year.

    1. I’m glad it’s back after it went AWOL for a full year.

      Seconded, very nice to see this manner of reader interaction back this year.

  3. Utter nonsense … all of my entries were by far the best ones!

    I expect far better stewarding of this feature next season or I will be throwing tantrums and blaming everyone for doing what I didn’t do!

    1. Your complaint will be investigated after the end of next year.

    2. +1, All of my entries were top notch too and were treated like a Williams on qualifying day :)

    3. Agreed, not one Lance tonsorial titter.
      @Happy New Year all. :)

  4. Max was feeling confident, having logged many hours in the simulator.

    Winner of the winners if you ask me.
    It got me choking on my toothpaste.
    Utter brilliance.

    My new year resolution: don’t read the year’s funniest captions while brushing.
