The Pitpass Awards 2016

NEWS STORY
25/12/2016

For those without the time - or the inclination - to check out the Pitpass end of season podcast, we thought you might still be interested to know what the team; Mat Coch, Max Noble and editor Chris Balfe, thought of 'Season Past'.

Then again, with so much rubbish on TV over the holiday, or forced to spend time talking to friends and relatives you're already bored to death with (after half-an-hour) what better excuse to disappear for just over an hour.

Anyway, Mat Coch came up with the categories, and unlike last year the team didn't share their nominations in advance.

On the other hand, showing his customary failure to ignore team orders - a rare thing in F1 - editor Balfe, in most cases, only names one choice in each category instead of the customary three.
