Formula 1 Qualifying at the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina Circuit
Saturday November 2, 2013
Qualifying day was met with ups, downs, controversy and surprise.
After the race in Abu Dhabi there are only two races left in the Formula 1 season. The USGP in Austin Texas and the Brazil race.
The 2013 season is the swan song for the very likeable Mark Webber, who just made pole position by beating the time of teammate and red bull champion, Sebastian Vettel.
On the downside was fan favorite and 2008 champion Lewis Hamilton, who qualified fourth but was unable to finish Q3 because his car broke-down. The Mercedes driver is in a great position to take the number two or three spot on points, and help his team land in second place, in the constructors.
Abu Dhabi was not without controversy when the "iceman," Kimi Raikkonen, with Lotus F1 held a press conference to clear up rumors of trouble between him and team heads.
The usually shy Raikkonen said the issues were about money. He went on to say he had not been paid all year and he might not race on Sunday unless, something was worked out. This is Kimi’s last season with Lotus F1 because he made a deal with the Ferrari team and will drive for them next season.
The big surprise during qualifying was Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso who did not make it into the top ten. Alonso will be in 11th place on the starting grid, which has put his team chances of second place, in jeopardy.
Stay tuned to Xiro Xone News F1 updates.
An almost predictable line-up will be on track for race-day on Sunday, at the Grand Prix in Belgium. The track was wet, dry, then wet, and the cars were slipping, skidding, sliding, and in Pastor Maldonado’s case, crashing. But all in all, the teams and drivers already on top continued to dominate. Pole sitter for Sunday’s race will be Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg. Right behind Rosberg will be fellow teammate, Lewis Hamilton. The 2013 champion Sebastian Vettel qualified third, while his Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo, was comfortable in fifth.

The Formula One Grand Prix at Spa, in Belgium, was jam-packed with excitement, tenacity, and some have said, “dirty tricks.” Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo drove a spectacular race all the way through the finish line. He started the race in 5th position then used speed and precision to overtake Mercedes driver and pole sitter Nico Rosberg. Once Ricciardo moved into first position he stayed there. He defended his position and held on for a back-to-back win, making this his third of the season.
Boos, Boos and more Boos for Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg today. Fans and race viewers watched as he appeared to deliberately make contact with teammate Lewis Hamilton just enough to damage Hamilton’s tires, and derail any opportunity Hamilton had, to earn points. Rosberg is in the lead for the driver championship and Hamilton, the 2008 World Champion was his biggest threat with an 11-point gap. Hamilton did not finish the race today due to damage to the car while Rosberg went on to finish second. Finishing third was the always friendly and reliable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas. Bottas really put the Williams-Martini team in a respectable position for championship points, which means millions to a team. Valtteri has become a very reliable driver with enough confidence, to duke it out on the track, for team points.
Xiro Xone F1 Sports Award for Guts goes to McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen who fought to keep his position against Alonso.
The Stop stressing me out award goes to, Sebastian Vettel, the 4-time champion with Red Bull. He made the podium on qualifying day, but missed it on race-day. Vettel has done a much better job with the car of late, and could have landed on the podium had it not been for a couple of hiccups, on the track. Now that he is more acquainted with the car we can expect to see him on the podium quite a bit more, next season.

In the Show Me state this week, the question, Am I My Brother’s Keeper takes us to the suburban St Louis, MO community of Ferguson, and Big Data's potential for producing chaos. Business as usual in the national media has been to raise the race card, carving a social justice angle out of a national security issue. Should the President of the United States give a speech about racism? The President has given the speech, signed a memo defining a threat to our national security and outlined a plan. We have not taken it serious enough.
By now, you've seen the news. On Saturday, August 9th, 28 year-old Darren Wilson, a six year veteran police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager. Was there a credible threat to justify deadly force? Did Big Data play a role in qualifying the officer's action? Is there a need for new data driving life-threatening decisions by armed Americans?
If you have read the report to The President of the United States, we’d like to hear your thoughts on My Brother’s Keeper.
