Yep, hopefully it's only a matter of time though and at least there's still IndyCar, Moto GP and the BTCC to watch.

Will be interesting to see what happens when Bernie gets pushed out the way,he is the master at getting whats good for F1 but will tge big teams now decide to see if they can get more power back from the new money men.

If Liberty want to grow F1 stateside can I suggest moving tge grand prix in texas to earlier in the year when there is no NFL,cannot gelieve they have it during the autumn starting at the same time as the football.Wonder what the americans are watching?

What a difference the right choice of tyres makes! A soft front kept Pedrosa's streak of at least one win every season going whilst the star, Marquez, languished in 4th with a hard front tyre. The Yamahas certainly never expected to be the meat in a Honda sandwich.

What a difference a tired old circuit like the one at San Marino makes. Moto3, normally full of action, was a 2-horse race with none of the customary multiple lead changes from slipstreaming. For once, Moto2 was racier. Shame about the bump which took Sam Lowes out when he looked like he was going places.

Could we actually see a non-merc car win a grand prix today with Lewis & Nico taking each other off.Seems like the fields best chance with the Singapore circuit with possible safety cars and not much over-taking chances.

Bit of stuff happening at the start then yawn for 60 laps.
Still, I got the paper read with very few distractions!

It is certainly becoming more and more predictable, with the odd bit of safety car to give a bit of excitement. To me it has become far too clinical. Still love my motorsport but some of the shine of it is a bit duller nowadays.

It was a very processional end to the IndyCar season. Pagenaud, the series leader, was on pole and led from start to finish. No big crash and mayhem at turn 2 on lap 1. About the only highlight was the Aussie whinger's car croaking for the only full-course caution. Everything else was very gentlemanly. Maybe the drivers had been ordered not to break the expensive cars during the last outing of the year. Montoya, shudda won last year, was 3rd overall in a Penske 1-2-3.

Very enjoyable morning of MotoGP @ the spectacular Aragon track. As usual, Moto3 provided the closest racing and well done to Brad Binder for sewing up the series with 4 races to go. Which should increase the craziness factor as guys with no championship hopes go for race wins.

A good day for everyone called Marquez. Alex was second to Britain's Sam Lowes in Moto 2 [YaY! British Win!] and his big bro won the MotoGP race, having successfully avoided being thrown off his bike in the early stages. And he also put points on the forces of evil Rossi, with a little help from Lorenzo's 2nd place. ViƱales did well, shame his tyres weren't up to the job.
