    Default Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    Here are the combinations to get the number "1" painted the nose of your favorite driver next year

    Alonso (246 points) will be champion if:
    - he finishes first or second
    - he finishes third, fourth or fifth, and neither Webber nor Vettel win
    - he finishes sixth, with Webber no higher than third and Vettel failing to win
    - he finishes seventh or eighth, with Webber no higher than fourth and Vettel failing to win
    - he finishes ninth, with Webber no higher than fifth and Vettel no higher than third
    - he finishes 10th, with Webber no higher than sixth and Vettel no higher than third
    - he fails to score, with Webber no higher than sixth, Vettel no higher than third and Hamilton failing to win
    If no rivals score? Alonso is champion

    Webber (238) will be champion if:
    - he wins, with Alonso no higher than third
    - he finishes second, with Alonso no higher than sixth and Vettel failing to win
    - he finishes third, with Alonso no higher than seventh and Vettel failing to win
    - he finishes fourth, with Alonso no higher than ninth and Vettel failing to win
    - he finishes fifth, with Alonso no higher than tenth and Vettel failing to win
    If no rivals score? Webber must finish fifth or higher to become champion

    Vettel (231) will be champion if:
    - he wins, with Alonso no higher than fifth
    - he finishes second with Alonso no higher than ninth and Webber no higher than fifth
    If no rivals score? Vettel must finish second or higher to become champion

    Hamilton (222) will be champion if:
    - he wins, with Alonso failing to score, Webber no higher than sixth and Vettel no higher than third.
    If no rivals score? Hamilton must win to become champion

    Deadlock: in theory, Alonso, Webber and Vettel could finish level on points at the top - a result of Vettel winning, Webber second and Alonso fifth in Abu Dhabi would give them 256 points apiece. Vettel and Alonso would have five wins each, two second places each and three third places each. Vettel would then be champion based on his three fourth places to Alonso’s two.

    Hami went fastest in P2. I know that doesnt really matter but at least he doesnt appear off the pace yet.

    The McLaren rear wing is finally working. A little too late unfortunately...

    There's a good chance that Alonso might not finish due to high mileage on his engine. As much as I would love for LH to win WDC I doubt the Red Bulls would do worse than third for this race. Shoulds be a great race.

    I didnt really catch the end of P3 but it seems that Alonso was P1 and Hami was P2.


    That isnt good.

    Are you a time traveler? P3 doesn't start for 7 hours. You might've seen the end of P2.

    The McLarens came out of nowhere! Im hoping Hamilton or Button takes out Alonso on turn one.

    Pretty bad qualifying for Webber, who is 1/2 s down on teammate, Vettel. I wonder why Red Bull decided only to do one run for Q3. Webber just couldn't put down a quick enough lap. We'll see what happens tomorrow... maybe the McLarens will take out the front two rows... Not looking good for Webber.

    I expected McL's to do way better here. Smooth track, rear wing update, long straights. Lewis would've been in pole if he didn't damage his front wing from the Massa incident, and didn't make a mistake in S2 on his quickest lap (he was 0.1s down from his previous best).

    Oh well...

    If you watch grand prix debrief on speed prior to each weekend you would've seen the RB simulator for every track this year.

    That is where I saw it today. Odd, I have watched speed debrief 3 or 4 other times and never really noticed it until now.
