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.

Ryan Blaney hasn't gotten the press that Chase Elliott has, but from all indicators he's at that potential superstar level. Ford has taken a strong interest in him as has Penske. What's the latest news on the Woods Brothers and Penske? What is happening to Roush Racing? Could there be a buyer in the wings with a familiar name? Do the fans understand the tire testing rules and the selection of the teams that test them?
In Formula One a co-driver is about to be announced to partner Fernando Alonso at McLaren, that is unless Alonso has gotten cold feet over the Honda failure at the AbuDhabi tests. Has Ron Dennis lost his battle to take over McLarens shares from his partners? Is that the reason the drivers and sponsor announcements have taken so long? In IMSA Prototypes have the Europeans gotten the message and developed an infrastructure to sell and maintain their new LMP2 Prototypes before the 2016 changeover? It appears they have with Krohn Racing taking delivery of the new cars as well as Ligier moving onto the scene along with Honda.

Unfiletered, unbiased and completely unafraid to tell it like we think it is.
In Formula One we have to address the mess that Ron Dennis, the team principle of McLaren has made such a mess of announcing the teammate for the incoming super driver, Fernando Alonso?

Great team, great drivers and great engines....it could be the iconic British team is back with a vengeance. Will Formula One allow a relaxation of their engine rules to make the races more competitive?
In IMSA, the Sports Car series, will we have some clarification of what the rules will be for 2015 or will it be another Daytona Prototype year?
