The season is over. The results are out. Renault has won the constructors championship and Alonso is the 2006 champion. The result is identical to last year.
The championship (both constructor and driver) went down to last race this year. Last year Renault was challenged by McLaren all the way to the last race (the driver championship was over by then).
The races were close and unfortunately I missed most of the season. One disadvantage of being in US.
