The final race weekend is upon us and although it does feel as though it's time for a rest, there's still a frisson of excitement to be had about the Abu Dhabi weekend. Rosberg is on form but champion Hamilton will likely want the last honours of the year. Teammate qualifying battles can be decided and we can compare just how far the McLaren has come since the start of the season.

After many years of mostly average service, our much maligned audio recording interface finally stopped functioning. A modest software upgrade rendered its ageing connections obsolete and it became clear to all, we had to move on.

So long, Squire

A fond farewell to the nicest eyes in motorsport

Sidepodcast: So long, Squire

by Christine Blachford

It was a surprise to hear this week that Jaime Alguersuari has decided to retire from racing, at the tender age of 25. The Spaniard, who has previously driven for Toro Rosso in Formula One, and most recently appeared in the inaugural season of Formula E, admitted that he's fallen out of love with motorsport and thus knows it is time to hang up his hat.

As big fans of refuelling before it departed, we now discuss our mixed reactions to the possibility of a return and ponder just what the governing body are thinking with their latest batch of changes to the sport.

by Mr. C

Just days from the start of a brand new F1 season, it has become unquestionably clear that the two of us are not remotely ready for race one. Wildly unprepared and massively behind schedule, I cannot foresee any way we could competently cover the opening Grand Prix. It's time to take a break.

Faster for the feed of sound

Updating the backbone of podcasting

Sidepodcast: Faster for the feed of sound

by Mr. C

In preparation the 2015 season, we've spent a little time tweaking our behind-the-scenes website code. One subtle but important change made since last year relates to the way we're handling news and podcast feeds. Admittedly the finer detail of processing syndication updates is about the last thing most F1 fans will want to read about less than a week before the first track action of the year, but timing was never our strong point.
