The first guest blog post of the winter season comes from Nathan, you can keep up with him on Twitter @nategreen85
Hi, my name’s Nathan and I’ve been following Formula One since 1992 when I was seven years old.

I know some of their chances looked better than others, however you had the feeling that if one of them could put a run of good finishes together they would be able to take control of the destiny of the title.

After winning four in a row and then even with his set-back in Abu Dhabi, Seb still looked the best bet for the title – he had the faster car afterall. However, not all was as clear cut as that. No one in F1 was forgetting Fernando’s exploits this season in THAT Ferrari. Read the rest of this entry →
