    From what I understand, it is pretty much guaranteed Vettel is going to get some grid penalties later in the season. So it is likely he is going to start from the back of the field from, say, two...

    Wait...

    That's actually true?

    :rotflmao:

    Alonso tries hard to make Honda sack him. But he probably doesn't care - getting sacked by Honda would rather be a blessing for him. :D

    At Melbourne drivers reported it was 'impossible to overtake'.

    Depends on the circuit, but I am not optimistic about places like Barcelona or Hungaroring to offer much racing.

    Ah, Vettel got a penalty. Oh, never mind. It must be the new "Verstappen rule" - for the smallest of offences. I have seen defence like that for decades and nothing happened.

    Cheer up, people! Why can't people enjoy historic moments of racing and always complain? Some of you are no better than Vettel himself - always sulky. Pot kettle black, lol. :D

    If you look at qualifying and race gaps, in 2015 Vettel beat Räikkönen as thoroughly as Alonso had done the year before (2014). So yeah, in my book it was every bit of a brilliant season.

    Rosberg saved his a$$ with his final qualifying lap. Driving for P2's works for him in terms of title for now, but competition is uncomfortably close to Merc this time from Nico's point of view.

    Also Alonso for being "best of the rest" behind the big three teams.
