    It may not be your cup of tea Zeb but at being world champion of anything is an achievement.

    For what it's worth, I thought it would go to Clarke. I thought Philips and Clarke were the only two likely to win, the rest of the nominations were really scraping the bottom of the barrel. I mean Button FFS, well done for winning one race out of over 110!

    IMO darren clarke deserved it - not cause of his wife but he played out of his skin yet again in the ryder cup! :eek:

    edit: true about button - how come damon hill or david coulthard never got nominated?? They won way more races in 110 and a world title the former... the only reason he got nominated was cause of his playboy status in F1

    Be fair Baba, he was up against some tough competition with Michael S in a Ferrari and Alonso on fire. He did well. Probably he should not have been nominated but he flies the British flag well. I can see him being more successful in the future, if he gets to drive a car that's competitively capable of winning GP races.

    As for Mark Webber, well um lets not go there :wink:

    Potential is no good if you don't bring the car to the finish line. Webber just seems to be plagued with bad luck. Button in a Ferrari would be excellent, what makes you think that's a possibility?

    Amongst all the disappointing offerings from British sport this year, I thought Zara Phillips fair deserved to win.

    I wanted Darren Clarke to win myself, being a bit of a golf fan, but apparently he made a statement saying he did not want to win/receive the award due to reasons I can't remember.

    She isn't just World Champion, she also holds the European title. That's pretty undisputed, and worth recognising, as equestrian sports I personally think only come into the limelight once every 4 years (the Olympics).

    Also a shame the Ryder Cup team didn't win the Team title, but again, St Helens were deserving with what they achieved.

    And a hat off to Paul Hunter.
