Hulkenberg confirmed to replace Kimi at lotus.
He deserves it.

Although both championships are over there was still some great racing yesterday and the fight for second is still a good fight.

Im not a fan of Vettel but I have to give it to him he has achived alot in a short time and I have gained a little more respect for him after the doughnuts in the last 2 races. It Brings a little excitement back into the sport.

Apparently webber was doing them too but we didnt see that.

I thought this was funny

They showed a small clip of Mark's doughnuts on BBC after the race, they werent great to be honest.

I think Mark has lightened up a bit towards Vettel in the Abu Dabi race. He seemed a lot happier.

Did anyone else notice the slow last pitstop for Massa by Ferrari. The front tyre took ages to go on, which gave Alonso time to get past Massa. Also apparently Massa was saying after the race he wanted the soft tyre for the last stint like Alonso, but they gave him the medium slower tyre instead. Conspiracy!!!


Thought Vettel was in a class of his own again. A bit slow compared to Mercedes off the line, but once he was in front he is untouchable! But previous race he showed he could overtake after the very early pitstop. He is definitely going to be one of the greats!

Speaking of Massa.

There is alot of talk about other drivers being moved, Hulkenberg, Maldonado etc but very little about Massa which is unfair as i Think, He has proved that he is still up there with the best and has out qualified Alonso for the last 5 races even with Alonso getting the better support form the team.
I mean he was a world champion for a few seconds until Hamilton overtook on the last corner.

Maldonado is really up himself IMO, figures he deserves a seat up the padock because he is a"Previous race winner". the fact that he he has only 1 point this year and still being mooted for a Lotus seat? WRONG!! Especially if the Hulk doesn't get a seat he truly deserves. Hopefully Lotus can sort out their financial woes, pay Kimi and move on and get the most talented driver available and not the one with the biggest purse. What next? Max Chilton buying his way further up the grid with daddy's money?
By the way, I thought David Croft's comment when Chilton tried to make a move on Bianchi yesterday was class: "Move over Jules, my daddy's got more money than yours"

On Massa; Would be a shame if he doesn't get a seat for at least Force India up. Williams would be a bad move for him IMO. Would like to see him partnering Paul di-Resta at Force India.

I remember at one stage when Schumacher was at his winning best getting that bored feeling... but when it was all over missing his brilliance. Have decided to enjoy Vettel's dominance and appreciate that what we are witnessing is just that, pure brilliance and more power to him and Newey and what all at Red Bull have achieved on a budget that's less than what they had when they were Jaguar! (It's even rumoured that Vettel's salary is less than what that of Eddie Irvine was )
Points for do-noughts!!, now there's an idea
