Also surprised but really respect his decision. If you achieve your dream then you can bow out with your head held high and move onto a new adventure.

Im guessing Max is stuck at Red Bull now for at least another year. No idea how the contracts work if they could steal him.

I don't think Alonso has committed to McLaren yet so could be a good shout for 1 year and then get Max in 2018

Very surprised at this!!

I think he has bowed out on a high but he knows deep down he won that title through luck....

I like Rosberg though, certainly a better person than Hamilton I just prefer Hamilton as a driver

Who would you like to his teammate? Would love to see a Hamilton and Alonso reunion. They're still the best two drivers in my opinion and sparks would fly. Verstappen, Ricciardo or Vettel would be good too. Imagine they'll just plumb for a compliant no.2.

I was looking forward to it. Watched a bit of the testing and was getting excited about the possibility of the other teams catching up. Woke up this morning to see Hamilton on pole and first in practice. Not a great start, which is a shame as if it was someone a bit different I'd be turning the highlights on right now. As it is I can't be bothered already

 i find it interesting that the powers that be want closer racing with more overtaking and yet the rules make the cars with increased tyre width etc bigger therefore surely less room on the road for overtaking more so if the cars are evenly matched

Was just reading that they are making further changes but not until next year  :-\. Such as shortening the nose and removing some of the other bits. Also only allowed to use 4 engines this year, so probably see a lot of coasting and saving engine life.

Agreed. There is something about f1 that just feels not right anymore. I've loved it since the Prost senna and mansell days but it just does not feel the same anymore. Some of the things that get talked about are just plain boring. I'm not interested in the fact that so and so is on this type of tyre and he had to use this type by the end of the race etc. Also the drivers over the radio moan so much I feel now, he blocked me he must have a drive through Charlie or he's just driven all four wheels of the track etc. Maybe the always did but we never used to hear it. Even some of the new tracks lack identity and whilst I don't want to see people hurt etc they lack close racing, a bit like some of these new stadiums etc. I feel rosberg retiring has robbed us of a least a good inter term battle as he clearly could get under hamiltons skin. I fear Hamilton will thrash bottas and Don't start me on mcclaren.

Mercedes still look comfortably superior to the rest. I fear another yawnfest. Good if you're a Hamilton fan I suppose.

Yeah I still think the Mercedes have more to give as well. Are there any races on 'terrestrial' TV this year? Or is it all Sky?

Christ F1 needed that. Can't read too much into the first race but the Mercs and Ferrari look pretty close so hopefully it'll be a decent season.

Got the result ruined by my BBC Sport app telling me the winner when I woke up. Watched the highlights knowing the winner but was excited to see the move to get the lead at least. Should have guessed it would be all down to a pit stop as usual. As much as F1 needed a different winner, realistically he's only won because he did a couple of quick laps when Hamilton pitted and his tyres lasted a bit longer..

Lewis Hamilton using tax loopholes in the Carribean, Isle of Man and lives in Switzerland.

How on earth can he morally fly the flag for GB when he doesn't even want to live here or pay his fair share?!

At least he has been a bit more grown up about it this year

I believe that makes Hamilton the joint 2nd most successful F1 racer?

2 titles behind Schumacher.

For most of his championships he has had the best car by miles, any of the F1 drivers would be ‘World Champion’ in that car. Of course, he is a good driver but not in the same league as Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio and absolutely nowhere near the late, very great Jim Clark.
