2006 330i  [4.67]
2012 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Another back to back weekends!!! With three races to go.

And we all know this suits the Red Bulls since 2009. Even though there was a mysterious DNF for Vettel last year, but the qualifying pace was dominant.
Seems like another 25 points in the bag for Vettel, just to see where Alonso will be doing damage limitation, and hoping for the best in Austin and Brazil.

Anyone expecting a snore-fest?
Hope we will see more action with two DRS Zones.

Race Date: 04 Nov 2012
First Grand Prix: 2009
Number of Laps: 55
Circuit Length: 5.554 km
Race Distance: 305.355 km

Tire Compounds Provided:

Medium (White)
Option: Soft (Yellow)
Rain: Cinturato Intermediate (Green) / Cinturato Wet (Blue)

unless there's mechanical failures, i dont see how RBR doesnt dominate this race. The car is miles ahead of any other team and this track should further highlight that

God damn was India a good race.

My particular highlight was Lewis' 5 wheel changeover in the pits

I had to rewind that a few times to get the timing down.

Also I'm VERY curious as to what came off Seb's under-tray fiasco at the end of the race. I would be pretty disappointed to see him get disqualified because of a few millimeters.

-2 F1 is about the entire team not just the driver. It's clear Ferrari has failed to produce a winning car for ALO and MAS. RBR FTW!

I was getting all excited for Webbo at the beginning of the season thinking he could get his first F1 championship but that fell apart.

Agreed!! He is a fast consistent driver, but lacks the fire of a champion!

Fuck Red Bull. All their fans are dumb asses, everyone on pit lane knows that Vettel is all car. He is not going to be remembered as one of the greats even if he wins the championship this year and the year after.

Nobody deserves the championship, they must earn it.

The name of the championship disagrees with your statement:

"Formula One World's Driver Championship"

I think you are confusing that with the constructor's championship.

Alonso deserves it because he has earned it. Out of the top 3 constructors, he has by far the worst car, yet he's always in the mix. If it wasnt for Grosjean, Alonso would still be in the lead

there's a reason there are two championships, RBR def deserves to win the constructors championship but Alonso has shown this year, he is the best driver

I wouldnt say he's all car but he has a huge advantage when the car is on, like it has been the last couple of weeks

Am I the only one whos hoping for the first Lotus win? Although, with two DRS zones here seems like its going to be unlikely since they have the slowest car

You are not alone! I want to see the Iceman on top the podium.
