The cars will all have that horrendous halo next year too.

Barely watched any this year - my interest started to wane when the BBC sold half the rights to Sky, and has dwindled from there, with JB's retirement pretty much reducing me to only a passing interest.

Same here, until 2-3 seasons ago I'd barely missed a race. Now whole weekends can pass me by. I still watch the races but most of them not live any more.

No Kubica then, by the looks of things.......they decided Sirotkin's a better bet ( and the £15mil 'sponsorship' that comes with him ) :biggrin:

Williams have a history of 'following the money'. Shame for RK but he was given quite a thorough testing so I think they must have come to the conclusion that they had doubts he could maintain it through a 20 race season. I think ultimately even if he has made a 100% recovery he has been out of F1 too long to get back in.

So should we really believe the hype about Kub?
I like the idea of him making a comeback and going on to become world champion..I mean, its pure Hollywood..but was he really that good?
Take a look at his stats vs Nick Heidfeld.. Robert hardly left Nick trailing in his wake did he?

Oh dear, Hamilton didn't win this year's SPOTY :biggrin:
His sycophants elsewhere are stuffed, though, as they can't resort to their usual accusations of racism which they tend to make against anyone who says or posts anything negative about him :lol:

It may not be over for Kubica yet as his management (Nico Rosberg) have offered Williams £7m to prove himself in the first 7 races.
