Sebastian Vettel made it seven consecutive race wins in a row after winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. As Formula One heads into the final two races of the season let’s review the good and bad of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Vettel makes it seven in a row
The quadruple World Champion completely dominated the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix making it his seventh consecutive win.
Vettel said that the cars pace was ‘scary’ points.
“I think today was incredible; the pace we had was scary at some stages” Vettel said.
Webber’s second place finish
The Australian started on pole position but was unable to hold off teammate Vettel and Nico Rosberg going into the first corner.
Webber eventually finished in second place just under 3 seconds ahead of third place Rosberg.
Massa’s overtake on Hamilton
Since announcing he’s leaving Ferrari at the end of the season the Brazilian driver really seems to have come into his own.
Massa caught Hamilton sleeping on lap 25 and overtook him on the inside while Adrian Sutil overtook him on the outside.
Another podium for Rosberg
After a second place finish in India last weekend Nico Rosberg finished third to make his fourth trip to the podium this year.
Plenty of midfield action
While the action at the front of the field wasn’t the most exciting we’ve seen this year, it was exciting to watch the battles play out in the midfield.
The Finn was forced to retire on the opening lap after making contact with Giedo van der Garde, making it his second retirement of the year.
Hamilton’s lack of performance
The Brit seemed frustrated with his performance after the race and was confused about why he couldn’t get the same kind of performance out of the car that teammate Rosberg had got.
Hamilton said the team needed to figure out why he wasn’t getting the maximum from the car and hopes the final two races of the season will be better.
“Hopefully the last two races will be stronger for me and I look forward to that challenge.” Hamilton said.
Grosjean narrowly misses out on the podium
After finishing on the podium at the Korean, Japanese and Indian Grand Prix Grosjean was hoping to make a fourth consecutive trip to the podium in Abu Dhabi.
He put in a strong performance around the Yas Marina circuit but ultimately finished less than a second behind third place Rosberg, narrowly missing out on the podium.
