    Well then...Here we are - the last race of the 2005 season.

    We've had a few good races this year - most noteably Japan.

    We've still got 1 of the championships to decide. Renault are ahead - but if McLaren get 2 more points than Renault - McLaren will be World Champions.

    Interestingly - McLaren and Renault have exactly the same stats this year - 36 starts, 28 finishes, 25 of which were in the points. It's been closer than you think.

    We do have A1GP to help us cope with the off-season. Well - that and the fact that testing begins soon. :D

    Between us all - this year so far we have done a total of 7094 posts. :eek:

    We've had all the usual people from last year's posts around as well throwing abuse at drivers/teams/each other ;)
    We've had some new people join in our healthy arguments - hopefully we haven't scared you off. ;)

    Most of all though - it's been fun for me to do. All the frantic typing during qualifying - all the spotted typo's - all the unspotted typo's

    Anyway - at the end of this weekend we are saying goodbye to many things in F1 - some good - some bad.

    Sauber
    Jordan
    V10's
    Pay drivers
    BAR *well..the name anyway*
    Single Lap Qualifying *as dull as it is - it's easy for me to do.*
    The number 1 on a Ferrari *does a happy little dance*

    And the things I will miss more than all of the above.

    Minardi and Paul Stoddart.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he's in tears at the end of the race. He loves his motorsport.

    No Google Earth link for this one I'm afraid, no one seems to have found the exact location yet.

    Let's just hope McLaren stick it to Renault and get their reliability problems solved over the winter. :)

    I'd like to see Raikonnen give one more monster performance before the season is out.

    I'd like to see McLaren win the constructors title. Despite their reliability issues and Montoya letting them down a few times, they've definitely got the class car of the field.

    It's been a great year so far, all it needs is for this week end to conjur up

    1st - Fisi
    2nd - JPM
    3rd - Kimi

    and Alonso & MS out of the points.

    What that would give us is Alonso as drivers champ, McLaren would get the constructors by 2 points (I think) but would also relegate MS to fifth in the drivers table.....
