With the 2001 season over, we'd like to know your thoughts about it. What impressed you most, what was most disappointing.

We've had Michael Schumacher and Ferrari dominate the season with Michael breaking almost all the records. There was the impressive BMW Williams Michelin package, Juan Pablo Montoya who early in the season appeared to struggle but later on was very impressive. The progress of Benetton, Sauber beating both Honda runners and of course Kimi Raikkonen who started the season with virtually no racing experience and ended it with a drive with McLaren. 

On the other hand we've had McLaren give away points like mad with numerous stalls on the grid due to faulty launch systems. BAR and Jordan unable to make any impression on the top runners with their Honda 'works' engines, Jaguar not achieving any of their aims. Rubens Barrichello unable to do anything about Michael.

Just a few of the impressive and not so impressive achievements from the last season. What were your thoughts of the past season ? Have Your Say (What others are saying)

The best race of the year was Interlagos while the most boring were Hungary and Japan. I don't know but there is something about Japan that makes it boring. The most impressive teams were Sauber and Williams whereas the worse ones were Arrows and McLaren. I was disappointed by Jos Verstappen. Great performance at Sepang but it was all over when he smashed into the back of Monty in Brazil - Rob - Australia

Well it was a season of disappointments and elation for all involved in Formula. We saw a dominant Michael Schumacher and Ferrari win both championships in which they richly deserved. Rubens was unable to leave the shadow of Michael and as try as they might Ferrari was unable to have their second driver to come second in the championship. Frank and his boys showed that teams can come and challenge the Ferrari-McLaren duopoly and both drivers earned their victories. McLaren and their fans must be disappointed that a promising start ended in the wilderness. Let us hope that Mika does not end up in the wilderness and enjoy his sabbatical too long. Well for the rest of the field it must be disappointing as well. The only exception is Sauber and Kimi, unfortunately for Nick it seems that McLaren have forgotten him. As a Jordan fan I must admit to having the entire gamut of emotions especially the puzzling decision to sack HHF before his home GP! It must be said that Jordan, Jaguar, BAR and dare I say McLaren and Williams, could have a much better year if they could figure out how to keep a car running for the distance. Benetton, Arrows, Prost and Minardi need to know how to build a faster car, although Benetton are showing some of their promise. Now to the moments that I thought that I would never see. Spain with Mika's car giving out on the final lap. Austria with four cars not even making a start, including both Jordans. Belgium with more stalling cars and Williams forgetting to take the jacks off Ralf's car (no amount of traction control could help with that potential wheelspin!) Farewell to Jean Alesi, Benetton and I hope not to Mika. So we can only wait until next year with new drivers, a new team, and a renamed team to see what the F1 circus will bring us - Steven P - Australia

I can't say that it was an exciting season. There were lots of dull races but that's the way it goes sometimes. Schumacher and the Ferrari team did everything right and deserved the win (no argument there). I think this is a progress year for a lot of teams so next season will be much more interesting and a lot more competitive! Well, that's what I am hoping for anyway!! Cheers - John L - Finland

Just to confirm that Juan Pablo Montoya is the best driver in Formula 1. In his first year, he demonstrated his capacities to be the next champion - Sergio - USA

I think that it has been a very good year for Ferrari, Williams BMW and Sauber. I am very pleased that Michael Schumacher has won the world championship again and that Ferrari won the constructors championship. I can see Kimi Raikkonen going very far in the future, and becoming world champion. I am pleased for Ralf Schumacher to finally win a race as well - Catherine B - Australia was a good season. Some big scares and some great moments as well as a Ferrari domination which made it quite boring at times. McLaren has had a bad year and for Williams it was always going to be a year of development. Montoya has done great since Monza and I really liked his performances but definitely the Man of the Year is Michael Schumacher and the car of the year, the Ferrari. I am happy for the Benetton-Renault which seems to be back into shape after that horrible start of the season and also happy for the Jaguar which has achieved 10 points (last year they scored 4). But Arrows, I am very disappointed, we started very well showing what we could do especially in Malaysia and Spain. Austria was our first and only point and then from Canada onwards (where we could have scored a 6th position) everything has gone bad. 2002 will certainly be a better year with Rinland - Cosworth - Frentzen - Rob - Australia
