Welcome a new world champion, Nico Rosberg! With a podium enough to win him the championship in the final race, Rosberg finished a close second behind a sandbagging Hamilton trying to back him up into the clutches of Vettel's Ferrari and Verstappen's Red Bull to no avail.


Force India beat Williams to 4th in the constructors and Sauber nips Manor to 10th with a safety car-laden, rain-soaked Brazilian Grand Prix.

This concludes 3 straight years of constructors and drivers championships for Mercedes in the new hybrid turbo era. A whole new set of rules come into place for 2017 with cars theoretically set to break track records.


After decades at the helm, Bernie is out. Chase Carey and Liberty media are in and plan to bring the sport up to modern-era standards in terms of digital access and hopefully prize money distribution.

Manor makes it 3 out of 3 of the new teams in 2010 which have folded.

On to NASIOC matters of business; looking at the amount of posts per race thread over the past few years, interest is way, way down on here. Each race thread used to be a a few pages long several years ago and now seldom reach two. I don't know if it's because of F1 declining in general, Mercedes' domination turning people off or people growing up and not posting on here as much due to real life obligations, but a lot of the regulars have disappeared. Because of this, I think we should just stick to a single 2017 season thread rather than individual race threads.

A bunch of us also play sperry's Fantasy F1 league. Join in the fun!

I'd be fine with no individual race threads. The big advantage to me was that you could avoid them and not see spoilers before you get time to watch the DVR'd race. But with the lack of activity in the general season thread, there wasn't a ton of activity outside of actual race talk. So now I would just avoid the 2017 thread, no biggie.

See how the race in Melbourne goes. Maybe it'll be super close and exciting with multiple cars going for the win rather than just 2 or 3 that we've seen since the V6 hybrid era started. Perhaps then we'll see more posting by other members.

F1 fuel supplier ExxonMobil switches from McLaren to Red Bull

Red Bull has announced an agreement with McLaren's long-time Formula 1 fuel and lubricant supplier Exxon Mobil, replacing Total, for 2017.

The deal involves the company, through its Mobil 1 and Esso brands, becoming the team's and official fuel, lubricant and motor oil partner in 2017.

Autosport understands McLaren will replace ExxonMobil, which it has worked with for 21 years, with BP, potentially with its Castrol brand.

The reasonably late decision to switch fuel companies will provide a challenge for Red Bull's engine supplier Renault and McLaren's partner Honda as 2017 engine development has been in progress for most of this year.

The move comes after Red Bull poached luxury watchmaker Tag Heuer as a sponsor from McLaren, before agreeing a deal to rebadge its engines with the brand.

"Mobil 1 and Red Bull are two global brands that share a passion for racing, performance and innovation," said Red Bull boss Christian Horner.

"Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula 1 for more than 30 years and our new partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil's world class expertise.

"In addition to welcoming ExxonMobil to the Red Bull Racing stable, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the technical team at Total, who have made a valuable contribution to our success in Formula 1 during our partnership."

ExxonMobil has been involved in grand prix racing for 38 years, accumulating more than 100 victories, six drivers' world championships and five constructors' titles.

Wishful thinking but very unlikely.

What a crock of ****. It must kind of suck for him that even though he won the title he's constantly reminded by the press that Hamilton is better. Dude needs to hire a nanny and get on with it. **** this retirement ****.

Quote:
“Since 25 years in racing, it has been my dream, my ‘one thing’ to become Formula One World Champion. Through the hard work, the pain, the sacrifices, this has been my target.And now I’ve made it. I have climbed my mountain, I am on the peak, so this feels right. My strongest emotion right now is deep gratitude to everybody who supported me to make that dream happen.

“This season, I tell you, it was so damn tough. I pushed like crazy in every area after the disappointments of the last two years; they fuelled my motivation to levels I had never experienced before. And of course that had an impact on the ones I love, too – it was a whole family effort of sacrifice, putting everything behind our target. I cannot find enough words to thank my wife Vivian; she has been incredible. She understood that this year was the big one, our opportunity to do it, and created the space for me to get full recovery between every race, looking after our daughter each night, taking over when things got tough and putting ourchampionship first.

“When I won the race in Suzuka, from the moment when the destiny of the title was in my own hands, the big pressure started and I began to think about ending my racing career if I became World Champion. On Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, I knew that it could be my last race and that feeling cleared my head before the start. I wanted to enjoy every part of the experience, knowing it might be the last time… and then the lights went out and I had the most intense 55 laps of my life. I took my decision on Monday evening. After reflecting for a day, the first people I told were Vivian and Georg (Nolte, from Nico’s management team), followed by Toto.

“The only thing that makes this decision in any way difficult for me is because I am putting my racing family into a toughsituation. But Toto understood. He knew straight away that I was completely convinced and that reassured me. My proudest achievement in racing will always be to have won the world championship with this incredible team of people,the Silver Arrows.

“Now, I’m just here to enjoy the moment. There is time to savour the next weeks, to reflect on the season and to enjoy every experience that comes my way. After that, I will turn the next corner in my life and see what it has in store for me…”

well that would be fun with a Wehrlein/Hamilton combination. Both aren´t Einstein when it comes to evolving a setup for the car. And with the new car generation

Button isn't a bad option, but unless Mercedes manages to beat everyone again with a new car Button probably doesn't have what it takes to help Mercedes toward another constructors championship.

if there is anyone in the F1 who wants another championship title more than Hamilton, than it is Alonso.

and to be honest, which team will be stronger in 2017, McLaren or Mercedes?
