Four time WDC Alain Prost takes the top spot with a tremendous 928 posts, beating out second place poster learnincurve by over 100 posts.

Lucky 13, I'll take that as a hint.

Yeah he is. I think he got a podium place last season, so it's no real surprise.

I had completely forgotten about this (and had to double check which race - Bahrain), but it serves as a nice reminder of the early Merc engine dominance.

In snooker, the crowd can get earpieces so they can listen to the TV commentary while they watch. I'm sure F1 can come up with a similar thing. Google Glasses to view timing screens perhaps?

Oh man that's awesome. I didn't think Hamilton would win it in all honesty because I assumed no-one gave a poo poo about F1.

British F1 champions tend to win it, especially since the season ended in November, and besides, his only competition was Rory McIlroy.

I'm pretty sure he'd give them the same leeway as Caterham. He needs one of them to make the grid.

Since nobody answered last time, I'll ask again - what/where is the official ruling regarding this magical loophole where if a specific number of cars make the grid Bernie loses out massively?

I actually couldn't remember who Toro Rosso's non-Verstappen driver was, had to look it up.

Carlos Sainz's dad was cool when he rolled his Celica a million times in Australia way back when.

I have every hope for Sainz. Hope that's he's as entertaining as Maldonado at least.

Vettel's already matched Kimi in his first proper day in a Ferrari, and he'll only go up from there. Besides, we all know he likes to win from the front. Number five is looming large.
