Luckily, however, these are now just round the corner as at 7pm every evening from Friday 13th until Monday 23rd December the Sky F1 team will be looking back at the grid's respective seasons in 11 individual review shows.
With the shows airing in reverse Constructors' Championship finishing order, we kick things off with Caterham this Friday and run all the way up the field to quadruple World Champions Red Bull, taking in all the key stories, performances and moments of the year as we go.
Featuring new interviews with some of F1's major players, including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Eric Boullier, the 30-minute programmes will act as your ultimate festive refreshers of the season just gone for the entire grid.
And then, like the star on a Christmas tree, the team episodes will be topped off on Christmas Eve by a special 12th all-encompassing review show entitled 2013 - A Record Breaking Year.
Aired at the slightly earlier time of 6pm and running for an hour, Simon Lazenby will be joined by Martin Brundle, Damon Hill and Johnny Herbert to dissect the story of the season and look ahead to F1's big regulations reset for 2014.
There'll certainly be no excuses to miss any of the 12 shows as they'll be repeated later on in the evening on the respective day they are first broadcast and also made available to watch via Sky Go. And even if you would prefer to sit down and watch them with some Christmas Day leftovers once all the shopping and parties are over then we've got that covered too - all 12 programmes are being shown consecutively in a Boxing Day night marathon from 7.15pm!
