    Did he really say "It's all yours" before he gave you the wheel?

    I'm not sure. I'd rather have the deck chair.

    I would sincerely like to apologize for shoving Esteban after the race. It was unbecoming.

    Next time, I will simply Verslappen him.

    Marshal: Do you have an eBay account?

    I would have slapped him, but he has the right to unslap himself.

    Marshall: This car should be painted in a colour that represents its competitiveness - Lemon Yellow, or Sack Brown!

    While Hamilton and Vettel end the season with a flurry of tire smoke, the smoke coming from Alonso’s car is actually yet another engine failure!

    With winter ahead and less pressure on a good diet, Alonso and Hamilton take up Donuts and Smoking again.

    Whilst Hamilton and Alonso partake in smokey donuts, the bosses of Philip Morris International rub there hands together at more subliminal advertising.

    Alonzo and Hamilton celebrate the legalization of recreational canabis in Canada with a little smoke.

    Rumour is that Volkswagen supplied the engines for this race.

    Well done to the winners and podium finishers. I think 5th is my best overall result over a season.

    Next year, I'm aiming for at least a podium!
    All the best for Christmas and 2019!

    Thanks to @Touring Mars for continuing to run this awesome tournament, and thanks to everyone who voted for my captions. I couldn't have won it without you :lol:

    It's been a long grind, but it's great to finally win the competition that first kept me here at this site back in 2010. It's been a long road to the top.

    Congrats to everyone else who scores points, well done for getting close @XJ40 and amazing 6 wins there @niky!

    Congrats @Jimlaad43 and @XJ40 , knew I would probably lose second place, as I saw Timo Glock spluttering around in the rain on that final lap, but alas, like Felipe Massa, I will retire into obscurity without ever winning that WDC, despite clinching race wins. (I saw it as so inevitable, I voted for XJ40's VW entry twice. Deserving win there, chap!)

    Where is Bernie Ecclestone when you need him? :lol:

    Tough competition this year. Tough selecton of pictures. But thanks @Touring Mars , as this competition helps keep our aging brains churning! :D

    Could we all join Kimi in saying a few words to mark the passing of his career.


    Edit: If it turns out to have been a good move I will of course eat my digital hat.
