To be fair, I've never heard anyone say they liked him for his personality. Know who else wasn't very personable? Ayrton Senna.

So who was the driver of the season? The 3 most obvious candidates have to be Alonso, Ricciardo and Hamilton and I'd probably put them in that order.

Yea this is me, Rosberg and Ricciardo are easily the stand-outs for me. This was Hamilton's championship to lose, and Rosberg almost made it interesting.

The drivers for any of the following teams should be given honourary MWDCs for putting up with such awful cars all year: Caterham, Marussia, and Lotus. Sauber don't count because they still somehow managed to be even worse than a team that couldn't show up for the last races of the season.

The McLaren at testing is a modified version of this year's car, they're not going to tip their hand early on any aero stuff.

And it'd be a bad idea to anyway, to provide meaningful comparison data it needs to be as close to the 2014 car as possible anyway.

Lots of goons signed up to do driver & team bios: https://docs.google.com/document/d/...dit?usp=sharing

We have enough right now to do the 9 existing teams, if Caterham & Marussia are in next year we will probably need more goons or some goons will be asked to double up.

If you guys actually want track bios then more goons will need to sign up, or some of you guys & gals will need to double up. If you only want to do one type of bio (e.g., you don't want to do a driver but want to do a team), post itt or PM me or something.

McLaren is actually trying to test two different cars.

MP4-29H/1x1 has a Merc style PU with compressor in front, while the 2x1 has the compressor in the back.
The 2x1 was apparently Hondas original design.

So apparently Force India are testing the Info Wing system today. IF it gets fitted to Maldonado's can it just display "Not Crashed Yet!" when he's still actually circulating?

And here I was thinking 2x1 was the number of laps Honda thought it could do without breaking down.
