There has been some complaining that full points should not have been awarded, but I'm glad they were and put this championship out of it's misery. It was pretty clear once Red Bull got rolling there was not going to be any stopping them. The only hope we had of a real fight disappeared with Ferrari constantly throwing results away and Mercedes not being able to get their car right.
Still, it wasn't those things that won it for Red Bull. Red Bull won by smashing everyone. It was not the result I wanted, but when they win that big you gotta suck it up and be happy for them.
Finally, I have been F1's biggest critic for allowing the drivers to race like little Satans. They must have talked to all the drivers in the off season because the driving has been so clean that it did not even look like the same series. We only saw one or two dirty tricks all year long as opposed to every lap last year. The racing this year was nearly as clean as Indycar, which is a pretty high bar to clear.
We know Mercedes will get next year's car right, and we can hope Ferrari tightens up it's strategy department. Next year looks good, but we still have four races to run this year.
