I feel quite relieved after today's race. We didn't get the championship decided on the day by any dodgy stewards decisions, or by Webber colliding with someone, or the Red Bulls swapping positions on the last lap, or an engine reliability problem. We also didn't see Alonso winning the WDC by less points than he gained from the team orders incident earlier this year. Even tyhe Toro Rosso shananigans with Webber and Massa didn't affect the results. And mercifully Vettel didn't go round thrusting the finger at everyone when he won. Somehow, we've ended up with a result with very little controversy in it.

RH, do you think the points change was effective or just made it harder to figure out the permutations at the end of season? Yes, I think F1 is now about "strategy" rather than racing and I'm worried that next years regs, with KERS and movable wings which you are only allowed to use a set number of times will make it even more a game of calculators, where the driver who manages to save a wing adjustment because the SC comes out will have the advantage at the end of the race. I'd like to see cars able to overtake and with less controls, not more.
