Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Preview And Prediction
Another Grand Prix is in action this week. The Abu Dhabi race takes place in what is the final event in Asia this season. There are now just three races remaining in the campaign. It does look as though we are in for a superb finish in the race for the Drivers Championship.
If there were any doubts that the race for the title was anything other than a two-man battle before the Indian Grand Prix last weekend, they have now been banished as Sebastian Vettel made it four wins from four to move thirteen points clear at the top of the leader board, and Fernando Alonso kept the gap down to just that as he came in second.
All eyes will be on this pair in Abu Dhabi this weekend and many find it tough to look past Vettel winning his fifth straight Grand Prix. He has shown what champions are made of and had left his best form until the vital moment.
The German also has the knowhow on this track after winning in both 2009 and 2010.
Don't write off Alonso just yet though as he has shown what a fierce competitor he is over the course of the season and knows that a victory here could move him back into the lead if Vettel is not at his best.
In terms of what this race means for the Constructers Championship, it looks as though it is now just a case of how many points Red Bull will win by as Vettel and teammate Mark Webber keep accumulating points and are 91 clear of Ferrari in second place.
McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will want to try and move their team up to second place this weekend and put in a good performance after frustrating a season. Hamilton just has three races left for the team and wants to end his McLaren career on a high.
He was also the winner here last year so could have what it takes to come out on top and deny the current top two the opportunity to take maximum points.
However, it is so tough to look past the current World Champions Vettel at the moment and he looks too good for anyone to compete with. Expect the German to storm to victory in this one, with teammate Mark Webber coming in second and then Fernando Alonso just remaining in contention for the title, with a third place finish.
