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.

Another Vettel Win at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi Sunday November 3, 2013
Red Bull champion Sebastian Vettel cruised into a 7th consecutive win around the beautiful Yas Marina race circuit. The Formula 1 race was at night under the lights, in front of a sold out crowd. Crossing the finish line second, was the much-deserved Australian, Mark Webber, Vettel's red bull teammate.
Third place became uncertain during the last few laps. For several laps throughout the race frenchman Romain Grojean with Lotus, was the sure bet to make third place. Changing track conditions and changing fortunes on the track, netted a third place finish for Nico Rosberg, with Mercedes, instead of Grosjean.
Prior to today's race, Grosjean had three consecutive podiums, and has done a great job for the Lotus team.
Rosberg’s win will keep the Mercedes team in the running for second place in the constructors.
America’s favorite F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, also with Mercedes, had car issues on Saturday during qualifying, and again on race day. He's looking forward to the race in the United States at Circuit of the Americas, where he took the win in 2012.
The next race is the USGP in big bad Austin Nov 15-17.
