As I type this, I'm just watching the post-race interviews following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, after which Sebastian Vettel of Germany found himself leading the World Driving Championship for the first time in his career - when it counted, at the end of the season.
He pretty much had to win and the Spanish two-time champion Fernando Alonso in the Ferrari had to finish worse than fourth, which is what happened.
Alonso's team probably made a strategic error by bringing him in for the mandatory tire change too early, which put him back on the track behind Russia's Vitaly Petrov in the Number Two Renault, and German Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes.
I'm not sure why I don't like Alonso, other than he seems awfully arrogant. On the cool-off lap he was seen castigating Petrov for not letting him pass. But hey - Petrov's paid to race, and if Alonso couldn't get by, that's hardly Petrov's fault.
And if he did get past Petrov, Alonso would have had a heck of a lot harder time getting past Rosberg, who did a great job this year, generally out-qualifying and out-racing his seven-time World Champion teammate and countryman Michael Schumacher.
I asked the son of former World Champion Kiki Rosberg if he was going to teach Schumi everything he needed to know.
He laughed, and said, "yes!"
And he did.
Few drivers' stock increased more in value this season than did Rosberg's.
That moment was brought back by seeing the YAS Marina circuit on TV today, winding right through the gorgeous YAS Hotel which is shaped like some ancient trilobite, its roof covered with LEDs which change colour from violet to blue to red.
And all this - the hotel, the race track, the near-by Ferrari World Theme Park - was a desert just a few years ago.
At that Mercedes event, they didn't actually record our lap times. But taking a peek at my wristwatch, I'm pretty sure my lap times in the SLS AMG were very close to those set by Vettel in his Red Bull-Renault today.
Oh yeah; fit me up for a Formula One seat!
Did I mention we drove about a third of the F1 lap?
