The second year of serious decline, this is really a pathetic effort.  The lowlights are very low indeed - the February releases are particularly bad, but there is some redemption in the rather good Formula 1 cars, but there is no fine engineering and no modelling of good road cars, there are only two new cars in the year, both in December, the Jaguar and the Citroen. They are OK, but no more than that.
