2013 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Hello F1 Fans,

    Now that the driver's and constructor's champion for 2013 has been decided, it is probably not even worth meeting up for the remaining races, right? No, on the contrary! For the final three races, it is likely that we will see a race winner other than Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull. The battle for second place etc. is still up for grabs, so the drivers and teams will be motivated to give it their best effort.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is held at the spectacular Yas Marina Circuit which is 3.451 miles in length with 21 corners. As the only twilight race on the calendar, this race will give the drivers a unique challenge of adapting to the changing conditions. As last year's winner Kimi Raikkonen is quoted, "Having a mixture of day and night makes a different challenge from circuits that we see anywhere else. We start with the sun and finish with the lights. It's different, interesting and spectacular for the fans to watch too."

TYRE ALLOCATION - The White medium and Yellow soft compounds will be used. The combination of the medium and soft tyres are best suited to the varied characteristics of the Abu Dhabi track, which being a twilight race starts in the late afternoon with falling temperatures towards the end of the grand prix.

DRS ZONES - Two DRS zones will be used in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Pursuing drivers can open their rear wing during two consecutive straights between turns 7 and 8 and between turns 10 and 11.

So, can Kimi and Lotus repeat their win from last year? Or can Mercedes follow up their second place finish last week with a win on Sunday? If you're in the New York City area and looking for some racing action with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Live race will start at 8:00am with the pre-race starting at 7:30am. 

We hope to see you all!

Note: Daylight savings time ends at 2am Sunday morning, so set your clocks and watches back one hour and enjoy the extra sleep.

    I think we all knew who was going to win, but the Kimi - Lotus controversy continues

      I would think being unchallenged at some point gets old and boring for SV
