Sebastian Vettel won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2013

Having started from second place, Sebastian Vettel in a familiar manner immediately became a leader of the race and brought the case to the seventh consecutive victory of the season and his third on the racetrack Yas Marina. A holder of pole position Mark Webber missed not only his team-mate but Nico. However, at the pit stop the Aussie managed to beat the German, finishing second in the end, but the gap from the leader turned precipice and was little more than thirty seconds. Before the end of the Championship two races and it is possible that Vettel could eventually won nine Grand Prix in a row. After Rosberg fourth checkered flag saw Roman, but his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was forced to start last, because after qualifying it turned out that his car does not conform to regulations. But already in the first round the Finn collided with one of Caterham cars and dropped out of the struggle. A major breakthrough with 11 places to fifth made Fernando Alonso. Still DRS system has brought real benefits to the fans, because in the early years of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix obnonyat there was practically impossible, and now on the road is constantly a struggle, even created a little artificial. In the Force India have chosen different from other strategy with only pit stop, which is usually practiced in the Lotus. But Indian stables it worked – both drivers again, as at the home Grand Prix of India, finished in the points. At this Paul di Resta finished the race at a high sixth place, and Adrian closed the top ten. For Lewis Hamilton race has not worked, so he had to defend better than to attack. As the curtain fell, he pursued di Resta, a car which was great battered tires, but was never able to get ahead of him, remained in the end the seventh. However, the Mercedes team by 11 points ahead of Ferrari in the constructors’ championship. And this is despite the fact that Felipe Massa crossed the line eighth, earning a few credits to the treasury of the Scuderia. In the first half of the race ahead of his Brazilian team-mate he was, but after the second pit stop, Alonso came forward and made a number of important overtaking on fresh tires, and Felipe was left behind. Finally, Sergio Perez finished ninth in the McLaren. And the next race will be held in two weeks – it will be the US Grand Prix in Austin, which will be held there for the second time after last year’s debut.
