Hamilton took victory in Spa, championship lead down now to 7 points.

Personally think the safety car came out at the wrong time for Vettel. Think they would have tried the undercut and could possibly have got ahead of Hamilton. Still all set up for Monza next week.

Those Force India's came together again. The team must be kicking themselves at the amount of points the drivers have thrown away this season.

So Hamilton came good and won the championship. Mercedes wrapped up a fourth consecutive constructor tiltle. Kind of feel that Ferrari handed it to Mercedes after looking so good up to turn 1 at Singapore. Red Bull finally look like they have a car that can compete with Mercedes and Ferrari but it's all come to late in the season

Two GP's left before it all begins again in March 2018. Will next year finally bring Mercedes championship winning ways to an end or do you think there dominance will continue?

Agree ... Ferrari`s fails let Mercedes off the hook.

Driver of the season ... Esteban Ocon.

2018 ... the usual top three mixing and matching, Red Bull making it tighter between the other two. Hoping that Bottas has increased front running consistency. Hard to see Mercedes being toppled but then there`s the Max Factor to consider !

A Ferrari man too, never a Vettel fan ... he let the side down !

Now at last the truth from the horses mouth (Ecclestone).
FIA stands for Ferrari International Assistance :(

Ferrari have previous in ramming other cars when there is a Championship at stake.
