It is terrific to be a racing car driver, quality performance and communication is a good thing to be when practicing professional standards.

1 Vettel
2 Webber
3 Alonso

Vettel has not helped Webber and Massa has not helped Alonso. Now Alonso has 8 points more than Webber and 15 more than Vettel. Abu Dhabi is going to be a match. Red Bull is the builder champion.

Abu Dhabi is home of Ferrari World. Alonso has a fresh engine that was saved for the race. I would be surprised if anyone other than Alonso wins. Vettel and Webber will probably take each other out.
Yes it will be interesting.

According to www.formula1.com, all three of the top teams (Red Bull, Ferrari and McLaren) have used 8 engines already. 9 for Massa. So if Alonso has a "new" engine, it has been overhauled. I expect both Ferrari and Red Bull are very concerned about engines right now.

I agree, it is easy to picture Vettel and Weber taking each other out, even on the first corner. Weber looked pretty grumpy in the interview after Brazil, and Vettel looked like a smart-arse kid who needed a good smack. Should be a good race.

This race coming up could be a real cat fight at the front drivers maybe take risks they would not normaly they all what that checker flag. I have allways like McClaren even named my son a Ayrton born 9/11/2001 after the greatest MaClaren driver.

Should Vettel win Alonso can afford to arrive fourth and be champion. If Webber wins Alonso must arrive second. It will be a dilemma for Red Bull.

Its all a matter of how the qualifying goes.
If Webber gets on Pole Vettel will help him.
Only if Vettel gets the Pole it will be kind of a risk.

Well, this is going to be interesting. Webber has to get passed Alonso. So who has most to lose here. How hard will Alonso defend to keep Webber behind him? Meanwhile you have to figure Webber is thinking "if I don't get passed him, it's all over" So it's kind of "do or die" for him. If Alonso defends too aggressivly, he could risk a DNF. And how will Button play into this, as Webber has to get past him first. Then of course there's the "Hamilton" factor, which Vettel has to be a bit concerned about. We all know they both sometimes throw caution to the wind. Anyway, it should be a good one.

Hamilton use to have pretty good starts.

Well it just goes to show, anything can happen! Alonso shaking his fist at Petrov on the cool-down lap, just shows he has no class. He has no problen with his team mate gifting him a win, but has a problem with another driver not moving out of the way. I guess he just kind of expects it!

It was fitting to see on the podium, the new world champion flanked by the Champions of ther past 2 years.

Congratulations to Seb.

Alonso should have shaken his fist at his team manager who sent him to a totally unnecessary pit stop following that of Webber. Had Alonso continued he would probably be the champion. But Red Bull is undoubtedly the best car.

It is interesting to think of frosty conditions that a Russian circuit could produce for the future, perhaps as interesting as the traffic when England won the football world cup. How quickly could the engines warm the track.

Perhaps they are car racing 2010 in 2011?

Perhaps they are dancing on stage with wonderful classical music?


Perhaps they are choosing the fuel from 2010 for another year?
