BBC COMMENTATOR MARTIN BRUNDLE'S 2010 REVIEW
"You can never count out Lewis Hamilton, who has been in contention for the world title in three of the four seasons that he has been in F1.
"He is always going for it, even though he has not had the fastest car this year.
"But for every brave overtake we applaud on his way to magnificent victories in Turkey, Montreal and Spa, there have been moments this season where it has all gone wrong.
"His crashes in Monza, Singapore and Suzuka effectively took him out of championship contention.
"This season has been a lost opportunity for Hamilton, but I still see the 2008 champion very much growing as a race driver."

Which famous person - dead or alive - would you like to have dinner with and why?
I would change my answer to this every day. It depends what kind of mood you are in at the moment you are asked I guess.
You could go for someone like Will Smith or Eddie Murphy, because they would be hilarious, but then on another day I would say Ayrton Senna, and on another Muhammad Ali.
