Formula 1 news has been slowing down slowly since the end of the season. We've seen the celebrations from what was a stunning final race, heard from all winners of trophies, and seen the FIA gala. Testing is over for 2008, and will resume again in January. The FIA have given us plenty to think about with their new regulations for the coming years, but that was a few weeks ago now. F1 is shutting down for Christmas.
With that in mind, I'd like to wish you Happy Holidays! I'll be taking a short breaking through Christmas and the New Year, so I'd like to leave you with a quick round-up of some of the reading you might have missed - something to keep you going as the nights close in.
2008 Gift Guide
You may be scrabbling for a last minute present, or perhaps have received some festive money that you'd like to spend on yourself. Here's a quick round-up of the Christmas Guides we have.
2008 F1 Gift Guide - Books
The first in a series of articles looking at the merchandise available for fans, and what would make an ideal gift for an F1 enthusiast this Christmas.
2008 F1 Gift Guide - The F1 Store
The second of our series of articles hoping to guide you in the right direction when it comes to buying a gift for a loved one, or a treat for yourself.
2008 F1 Gift Guide - Toys & Models
Our third look at gifts available to buy for F1 fans this Christmas, takes a closer look at those cuddly toys and collectible models.
2008 F1 Gift Guide - DVDs
This penultimate look into the world of F1 gifts focuses on DVDs. There are season reviews and looks at the drivers for the F1 fan in your life.
Unfortunately, the final guide in the series was pushed aside to make way for the shocking news that Honda had quit the sport. Look out for that guide next year!
2008 Season Reviews
Scattered over the last couple of weeks, I've reviewed the entire season through the eyes of each team individually. They were done in reverse constructors championship order, therefore finishing with Ferrari. Enjoy.
Hopefully that will keep you going until we return in 2009, which only leaves me to wish you all:
Happy New Year!
