Any time you have one dominant leader in any sport the interest ( audience $$$ ) begins to shrink . It happened in F1 during the Schumacher era and it's beginning once again . No one has been able to pull away as dramatically and consistently as Vettle has. Something is up and the sooner they find it the better off F1 will be .

I'm seriously looking forward to next season find see what the new engines bring. Not happy with speak that they will be up to 3-5secs slower per lap, but I think Ferrari and Mercedes will be top dogs next season

Liking that a lot but do you think that we'll still have the engine box with turbocharging? I was thinking we'd be back to the roll hoop and some alternate intakes maybe, like in the prior turbo era.

I'm hoping it's closer to your rendering, as I really like the airbox look a lot better than the roll hoop look.

Ooooh, that's pretty hot! I still wish the rear wings were allowed to be a bit wider though.

Well, that's a wrap for the Constructors and Driver's championships. Even though the titles have been decided, it wouldn't surprise me if RedBull continues to push hard and get Seb to the top of the podium for the remaining races.

With next years rumors running wild, I gotta say I'm really excited to see who ends up where. I think with the new engines there will be a lot mechanical issues, so we may not see total domination by one team.

I'm excited to see Romain Grosjeans' form as of late. The kid went from being a wrecking-ball to a frequent visitor of the podium. Ideally I'd like Hulkenburg to end up at Lotus next year. That duo would be the hungriest-team by far for a win. They would be awesome to watch.

The next three races should be good. All the upcoming tracks are really perfectly placed for the end of the season. I'd love to see one of my McLarens on the podium, but that is a long shot. I do think if Hulkenburgs' car is in good form @ Brazil he might get that maiden win. He's an absolute monster at that track.

I also hope Lotus keeps Romain, it's funny to see Kimi struggling while Romain came back strong later this season. Ferrari better have a decent car from the start in 2014 otherwise Kimi is going to have a very long year... me thinks.

I'm sort of looking forward to McLaren Honda in 2015 and hoping JB is still on that team.

not a real fan of Massa but I think his move to Williams is pretty cool.

How about Perez getting the boot, replaced by Magnussen? Dang.
