Yup, Lewis World Champion Talk about nailbiting finish!
Didn't see the race but good on him! It's been an 'interesting' season, and he deserved to win! By the sounds of that review it was a very close call!!!!
It will be interesting to hear what happened to Glock!
I thought he was going to throw it all away at the end, but good on him!
Jeez, what a way to win a championship!?!!!!
Suck on that one, Ferrari!!
I think my neighbours knew I was watching the race.....

Now all he needs to do is pay his tax like the rest of us!
Seconded what sylv3r said........glocks pace just fell off a cliff on the last lap. It didn't look wet enough for the dry's under his toyota to slow him by 18 seconds on the last lap. Did seem very odd.
Heart in the mouth last couple of laps, thank god for rain in formula one.
it strikes me as odd you'd want him to pay for services he's presumably paid for in previous years....'used over the years' as you say, when he was a mclaren employee resident in the uk.
Anyway i'm sure he pays some tax to the UK.....just probably not as much as you'd want him to pay.
Just to add, you do realise that income tax as part of the progressive tax system is one of the most ineffecient and unfair forms of taxation, because it's taxing productivity and earned income. Whereas various forms of unearned income have tax exemption or are easy to circumnavigate. ? I object to anyone paying absurb levels of basic and higher rate income tax on their main EARNED income, all becuase our progressive taxation system is obsessed with ability pay. Unfortunately they teach this nonsense to kids at a very young age, and we go through our entire working lives not questioning the progressive tax system.

Yes, i accept lewis decision was very cynical, and he did himself no favours by citing the 'lack of privacy' balls for upping sticks to the land of cows with bells.
@K.C Leblanc - i know he was on slicks, but i didn't think the rain was heavy enough to slow him by 18 seconds. Although that is by far the most logical explanation......he just looked slow, didn't notice him struggling to keep the car in a straight line as if often the case with drys on a wet track. His slicks would have been up to temperature aswell so...... btw i'm not looking for a conspiracy theory. honest.
