    The final race of the season in F-1 is upon us. Should be fun to watch and don't count Hamilton out of the top four. He brings to the very end. Should be a nice battle between the Silver Arrows and Ferrari with Red Bull continuing to enter the fray. Get your picks in and we shall see who wins our championship.

    You are welcome guys. Come March, it'll be a new season and a cleans late. I too would like to see Red Bull and Ferrari to really bring the fire next season. I'll see everyone then.

    Side note do we know if we will have the same broadcast crew??

    I will be really disappointed with ESPN if they don't keep them, they're one of my favorite broadcast crews in sports
