I find Abu Dhabi too sterile.

I like the facilities and especially the pit exit.
As long as that fingering idiot doesn't go pole to finish and turn the race into a giant merry-go-round then I'll be content.

Looked like Kimi and RoGro was pretty fast this FP2, btw.

Finally! I have internet & cable at this house and Kimi and Gros are moving up AND the TV hours are when I might even be awake (no DVR). Formula One, Here we go!

It will be interesting to see what happens when someone gets sideways in the pit exit tunnel. M Webber almost did so in practice yesterday.

Qualifying was interesting. Vettel was nearly a half second behind Hamilton, could not get it back to the pits and now has to start from the back. Kimi moves up to row 2.

Now, to be serious, I'm not hating on Vettel.
I admire his talent as a driver and he has what it takes to win.
It's just that I want races that are interesting to watch. 'Races' where one man is basically doing a qualifying run for 2 hours all by himself while everyone behind him is battling for whichever leftover positions they can get gets tiring, although entertaining none the less.
An Epic battle like Jensen overtaking Seb at the final lap in Montreal last year is something I love to see. Hopefully, tomorrow, we can see Seb clawing his way up through the grid and actually fight for a podium finish.

Abu Dhabi, WOW. I don't want to give any spoilers for those who are watching it later today. But, make the time to watch this race. It is far from the "sterile" race some people suspected it would be. Right now it is Lap 42 of 55, it is all far from over.

THAT is racing ... On several levels. Hate to spoil anything but definitely the best race to watch in a long time.

If you are a true F1-Fan, this race is one for the books. It will be remembered for the longest time. Kimi stepped on top of the podium the first time in 25 years - for Lotus! Hate him or love him, Seb is a remarkable driver. Can you remember when a driver started a race from pit road and finished among the 1st 3? I guess he was German, too, just a little older ...

True. Jenson actually accomplished that within the last 25 laps after he started that race in 7th.

I know I'm quoting myself, but WOW, that was a helluva race.
A HUGE congrats to Kimi for a superb race! And Kimi saying "just leave me alone, I know what I'm doing!" and "yeah yeah yeah yes yes yes yes, gotta warm up the tires" over team radio was Hilarious!
Props to Vettel for clawing his way back to podium from the back of the grid!
Epic fight for the 1st place the last 10 laps from Alonso!

Man, that was the race of the year!

I am watching the replay now. It looks like Kimi is going to win the replay as well! This is sooo cool. We need "25th anniversary win" model. Hope she's hot!
