@mschumi Speaking as one legend to another Michael, I think it's obvious to everyone that it is almost a forgeone conclusion that Red Bull will hire an existing superstar, a quick, consistent, and media-savvy Scottish ace. It seems apt that F1 will now usher in what motorsport historians will refer to as the Newey-Di Resta era of dominance, an irresistible combo of the world's greatest designer and driver.

Even given the clumsy collision due an unsafe release, my own crew stole the show for pitlane ineptitude due to our overheating wheel-nuts. My frustration at having another win snatched away was only increased by all this team-orders furore, which distracted the media to the extent where nobody is talking about me.

@hammy My own teammate does a similar trick with champagne glasses, but using other people's necks. I suffered the gross injustice of being robbed of 7th place by a man with a GBH conviction, whose image is in stark contrast with that of myself being a future legend with an impeccable record.

I think it is unfortunate that all this talk of world titles, yellow flags, and Hulkenberg confirming his reputation as a crasher, has overshadowed the most significant aspect of the Brazil race. Speaking of the elderly, the retirement of Michael Schumacher finally marks the end of an era, and the torch has been passed to the next supremely dominant F1 superstar. Motorsport historians will inevitably refer to this period as when F1 entered the Di Resta era.

@nico Given I will most likely be the centrepiece of any BBC coverage when I retire from racing, I would like to thank Jake for his professionalism to me in my nascent TV career in what some naive and short-sighted ordinary viewers might see as a ludicrously disproportionate amount of coverage devoted to a future megastar. Speaking of departures, in my capacity as a future world champion I would like to personally thank Michael for the example he has shown the man who will usurp his records and take the spotlight,so to speak.

Speaking with the authority of one of the greatest drivers in modern F1 I find it amazing that the soon-to-be second most successful driver in history would be so unaware of the regulations. I ensure I don't infract the rules as a post-race visit to the stewards would reduce the time I can devote to my BBC appearances.

@fernando One of the unfortunate consequences of mega-stardom Fernando is that some people inevitably try to take advantage of your fame. The plaintiff in question misled me over a deal with one of the hordes of sponsors who want to be associated with the di Resta brand.

@fernando I was shouldered with the burden of being the hero of the team last year in the face of all the negative publicity attracted by Adrian's unprofessionalism. Sutil numbers the ranks of people over whom I have asserted my complete superiority so I won't seek his counsel.

I can understand Lewis' frustration in having a god-given talent, effectively without parallel, being compromised by the failings of both team and machinery. One factor which may weigh heavily in Lewis's decision is that I myself will undoubtedly be a shoe-in at one of the big teams, thus limiting the available seats for others seeking to switch.

@mschumi I don't think it's remiss of me to say that sometimes the magnitude of a certain person's talent gathers such momentum as to make that superstar, in effect, unmanageable. I see a manager as I do my team, simply a support structure to allow me to continue my meteoric ascent to immortality.

@hammy While I congratulate Lewis on his honour, as a future hall-of-famer my hope is that F1 is an Olympic event before I retire. While I may be cruelly denied the time to match the medal tally of fellow legend Sir Steve Redgrave, at least adding an Olympic gold to my startling list of over-achievements would further cement my place in the pantheon of sporting superstars.

@mschumi Since I am at the start of a stellar career which will inevitably see me overhaul your records Michael, and possibly take your Mercedes drive, I have a mixture of admiration for your achievement conflicting with the realisation that I will now have to demonstrate my sublime skills at the top level for another 18 years to surpass your longevity.

As a future multiple F1 title winner, I am hoping this weekend in Montreal to avoid perhaps the only illustrious list I do not wish to be on, and so will be keeping a wide berth of the "Wall of Champions", so called because Villeneuve, Schumacher and Damon Hill all had infamous collisions with it.

@mschumi Slight correction there Michael, currently you are statistically the best driver ever. Motorsport historians will record this as the time when I emerged from the nascent period of my stellar career, when I moved on to the top team enabling me to fulfil my destiny and overhaul your records, with a possible ironic twist being me replacing you at Mercedes.

@mschumi Even if the Mercedes deal does not work out Michael, an indicator of how my sublime talent has lit up the F1 world is that I have been also linked to a Ferrari seat. Given I am potentially the best driver ever, there would be a neat symmetry in me joining the greatest team in the history of F1, a view shared by a compatriot with a similar level of talent to myself, Sir Jackie Stewart.

@TomK_8 To back up Tom's assessment, my extraordinary talents behind the wheel of an F1 car confirm that the DTM must be considered a fertile training ground for F1 superstars. While my compatriot Susie was not someone who rivalled my DTM performances, I hope that she can acquit herself well in F1, albeit I think it unlikely she will reach my stratospheric heights.

@mschumi Given the trauma endured by some of our team members, I am just delighted for the team that I was the hero of a dark hour and was able to produce a stunning drive of composure and maturity to register our best finish of the year. In fact it feels like a win given the equipment at my disposal.

@mschumi The first of my many victories will materialise once my status as the hottest property in the pitlane is rewarded with a top drive. Until then I will just have to continue exhibiting all the traits that will in the future bring me multiple titles.

@mschumi Actually Michael, if anything my career to date has been a tale of over-promising and then over-delivering, which is quite extraordinary. Motorsport historians will record the 2012 Bahrain GP as being particularly significant given it was the first of the many occasions that Paul di Resta led a GP.

As a member of the Formula 1 elite, I think it is only fair that I should come to Narain's defence. The less talented amongst us should be given the chance to enjoy themselves on track without being harassed by those with the privilege of driving cars which are clearly light-years ahead of the machinery even a top-class driver like me has at his disposal.
