Another Vettel Win at Yas Marina in Abu DhabSunday 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.
