Although in at least two of those (McNish, Rockenfeller) I think it could be said it was not the Ferrari driver's fault. Arguable anyway. McNish was making a pretty aggressive move, the Ferrari was just on the racing line. And I've heard commentators talk about how the Audis had ridiculously bright lights and the GT drivers could barely make out how close the Audis actually were in their mirrors at night. Both of them were passing on the inside at high speed.

A jubilant Lewis Hamilton has been shaken from the elation of his second F1 world championship after realising that he must spend the next few months with the sound of Nicole Scherzinger.

‘Lewis is used to having a high pitched, painful noise right next to his ear,’ said a source close to the driver. ‘But for 19 weekends a year he can at least drown her out by driving his F1 car. In the off season, however, there’s only so many times he can claim he needs to ‘go away testing’.’

Sources say Hamilton’s other complaints about having to spend the whole winter with his girlfriend include ‘shower full of shampoo products’, ‘yoghurt for every meal’ and ‘still doesn’t understand difference between qualifying and race’.

‘After winning his second title Lewis can’t wait for the next season to begin,’ our mole continued. ‘Not because he wants to start trying for a third championship but because it means he can get away from that voice. It’s like crows being punched through a wood chipper.’

But now when I'm pushing a trolley around the supermarket or biking to work I'll have to make not just the upshift/downshift noises with my mouth, but also the KERS and turbo sounds as well. That video looks like driving in a video game, with the car having so much more power and grip than the GT3 cars you're passing someone every half a minute.

I am ashamed to admit I totally do this in my head while I'm walking through pedestrian traffic on my commute to/from the train station. And I usually take the racing line around the file cabinets in the office.

That's the 2012 car, it was a complete shitcan throughout the first half of the year and Alonso still won races with it. I wonder if Vettel came away from that with the harsh realization that he's second-tier.
