Last year silver cars won 16 out of 19 races, Lewis Hamilton won the world championship and everyone spent more time talking about what's wrong with Formula 1 than what's right about it.
This year silver cars won 16 out of 19 races, Lewis Hamilton won... you get the idea. It wasn't a great season, and having spent more time following it from home than I have done in previous years, when I was more involved at the races, it's given me a very different perspective on grand prix racing.
There's nothing really wrong with what Mercedes is doing. It's there to win and has done the best job. Even with all the resources in the world and the might of a big manufacturer behind it, there is no easy way to succeed in F1 and those involved deserve a lot of credit.
