Hello all,
The final race of 2010 is upon us and the thrilling title battle between Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton reaches a climax.

What are your predictions for the race? Will Vettel help out Webber if needed? Will it actually rain in Abu Dhabi? What will Eddie Jordan's wardrobe have in store for us? You can also nominate your driver, drive and moment of the season, as well as what song you'd have playing over the 2010 montage.

The live text commentary is now up and running. It's your last chance in 2010... news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/mot...

I think that from now on, every time that I meet an Alonso fan who is a Hamilton hater, I'm just going to point at the in lap of the 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and say "Lewis Hamilton would never do that."

Indeed. Does anyone else think there's been a surprising lack of strategical awareness this season? Particularly given how little they have control over. I think the teams were so used to fuel loads dictating pitstop windows that they just can't even see to stop a driver losing 2 seconds a lap. I know why they stopped Alonso when they did but it's no secret the tyres can last a whole race distance - Rosberg and Petrov knew enough to stop on the first lap.

Just seems there's been constant bewilderment at one top team or another for their pit stop decisions every race this year.

Considering both Red Bulls dnf'd recently AND took each other out a few races before, they could have sewn up the Championship long ago while FA was getting favours from Massa who had already sacrificed his season for him, and probably his career.

Good to see both McClarens in it till the end too & not doing any Ferrari-type dirties.

A fair result all told.

Congrats to Vettel who finally made up for all the bad luck he's had.

As for Hamilton, I don't find him particularly arrogant and he's clearly the most exciting driver on the grid. The only one that's a real "racer" of the old style that goes for the front no matter what. Given equal cars and space to overtake and he'll beat the lot. He'd be unstoppable in Nascar.

As for Alonso, maybe it's time to get in touch with an analyst to sort out his problems. Very poor his reaction to Petrov today.

Oh, and time for Ferrari to get somebody who knows a bit about racing tactics.

Wow! What a fantastically entertaining season. The teams and their players made it for sure, but without the whole of the BBC's team involved, we would not have been gripped so tight with the continuing unfolding stories, tension and overflowing drama that has made 2010 such a year to remember. Well done to the new Word F1 Champion and well done BBC team - your finest ever season too.
