Abu Dhabi F1

November 3, 2013 by  

Abu Dhabi F1, Mark Webber equalled Sir Jack Brabham’s Australian record of 13 F1 pole positions as he and second-placed Sebastian Vettel made it a Red Bull front-row lock-out for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

On a very Australian day, Webber, 37, also chose the former world champion Alan Jones’s 67th birthday to produce one of the greatest laps of his career as he produced his second pole run in three races, at the track where he lost his chance to win the world title in 2010.

The Mercedes pair of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton finished next, and they were followed by the troubled Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen, who had to be persuaded to race this weekend and who may still pull out of the last two races of the season because of unpaid wages.

In the first stint, which was headed by Hamilton, as the Mercedes driver maintained his impressive record here, the casualties were Esteban GutiƩrrez, Adrian Sutil, Giedo van der Garde, Jules Bianchi, Charles Pic and Max Chilton.

In the second run the big name to miss out was Fernando Alonso, who failed to make the top-10 shootout for the first time this season as he was outqualified by his team-mate Felipe Massa for the fifth time in six races.
