The F1 season is now over and for those of you who follow the sport, it was a bit anti-climactic while being one of the most exciting races of the season. Hams had his race ruined by an accident directly related to the fluctuating weather conditions at Interlagos and Button took the checkered flag. Massa finished the season on a high note, taking 3rd position behind his teammate (probably could've held second if didn't race for Scudaria). Schumi exited the season like the true champion he is and Alonzo handled his loss in the championship, by a mere 4 points, in the same fashion. Class acts all around. Vettel spun early and unbelievably made his way back to sixth to spoil Alonzo's last effort at the crown. You have to tip your cap to a champion who earns it. And on to 2013...Perez to McLaren and Hams to Petronas. The landscape will change more in the lower end teams, so stay tuned.

V8 Supercars action this weekend from Winton, more delay-airing motorsports from earlier in the year as well as a few cool specials to check out. It's going to get warm again in the Mid-Atlantic area this Sunday, so make sure to get another car wash in. I think I'll use the fair weather to get my winter tires installed. Enjoy your weekends.
