 Well done Lewis, though you had me on the edge of my chair for the last few laps.

Reckon Dan the Man did a fantastic job for 3rd, Merc killed the season with their superior machinery. the racing was pretty good this season though.

The best man won, though I do wish that Rosberg's car hadn't failed and that he had come in 2nd in the race. Lewis had that gap between them well covered, as he has all season long.


Although some will say that the season was boring owing to Mercedes' utter dominance, I really enjoyed the scraps in the lower order and all credit to the TV people for showing us most of it, not just concentrating on 1st and 2nd.


If the car has the same degree of dominance next year, I can see Lewis triumphing again in 12 months' time. Rosberg's good, but just not as fast in the race as Lewis. And they both know it!

Well done Lewis, well deserved end to a nail biting season.  It would have been ideal to see them both battling to the end, but huge respect to Nico for showing such positive sportsmanship after that gutting power failure, and for asking to complete the full GP when told to retire.

Was a bit more interesting this year but I think next year will be even better.... There are several teams with good drivers, all of which could quite easily topple Mercedes


My tip for next year is bottas

Well done to him and his team, after a season of annoying mechanical breakdowns they deserve the world championship.
Such a shame that Nico suffered the car problems that plagued Lewis in the middle of the season and I'm sure all of us would have preferred a proper duel in the final race- almost had one with Massa catching him towards the end- didn't know which one to cheer for! :}

Didn't see it live but heard the result and then watched the evening replay and loved every Minute, well done Lewis, you deserved, 11 wins in a season, brilliant, same again next year please, although Williams are going to be a Problem I think, and you can't Discount Honda.
