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.

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.

Just when Nico Rosberg thought he would be pole sitter for the Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore, his team-mate Lewis Hamilton pulls the rug out in Q3 by seven one-thousandth of a second. Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo was 3rd, his team-mate Sebastian Vettel 4th, and Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso was 5th. This was the sixth pole position of the 2014 season for Hamilton and a much needed one, for a track like Singapore. Sundays race in Singapore will be the first test of the new radio rules.

There were a few surprises on the track during practice at the Singapore Airlines Formula One Grand Prix in Singapore. A surprise showing by the Ferrari team gave fans a reason to sit up and take notice. At the end of the first practice session, the fastest man on the track was Fernando Alonso. MercedesAMG driver, Lewis Hamilton, was second fastest, followed by his teammate, Nico Rosberg.
Four-time champion Red Bull Sebastian Vettel seems to be improving and had the fourth fastest car. Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado did not disappoint when he ended his practice session, after hitting the side of the wall at a turn known as, ‘the Singapore Sling’. Rosberg had to cut short his second lap, when Maldonado hit the wall. Prior to Maldonado’s crash, Rosberg was fastest on the track, so Hamilton must not under-estimate him at qualifying. By the end of practice 2, fastest on the track was Hamilton, Alonso, Daniel Ricciardo, Kimi Raikkonen then Sebastian Vettel.
The weekend entertainment during the Singapore Grand Prix features, family friendly entertainment, and late night performances for the mature party set.

Uncle Mark is wide awake and roaring to go into NASCAR's playoff Chase Race #2 this week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Brad Keselowksi cemented his way into Round Two of the Chase but who might get knocked out this week before it even feels it got going.
Rookies have been a factor and it appears they'll continue to be so even as non-qualifying chase drivers. OUCH!
NHRA pulled a "fast one" (?) in the wake of last week's bad weather in their "Countdown" . . . but is it fair? Ahhhh . . . you might just hear from an outsider on that one!
Race fan? Yes? What the hell are you waiting for . . . will you give these guys a call at 347 - 826 - 9964!

Today @ 1pm (CST) on Healthy Mind & Body Radio.... Freeing the Power Within... with Sally Stubbs
My friend, Sally Stubbs, HAS THE SKILLS. Her work is her PASSION. After setting up her private hypnotherapy & psychotherapy practice since qualifying in 1982, she has been perpetually continuing her education ever since in her specialized field.
She worked as a consultant to the Cumbria Juvenile Justice Team, assisting 14 to 17 year olds to stop offending. The team members, with whom she worked closely, claimed they had never met a 'bad' child, only children who were 'lost'.
Since then she has been specifically writing and compiling my Therapeutic Courses: in the style of and based on the amazing and successful work of Dr Milton Erickson.
Erickson is globally considered to be the 'Grand Father' of Hypnotherapeutic work, and I have been fortunate to study under his amanuensis, Dr Ernest Rossi.
In 2010 she wrote my first book, "If Life Gives You Lemons" ...... How the little word " If " has the power to change our lives forever!
Join us today at 1 pm and Free that Power Within...
