THE SUN SHINES AND SETS ON "RedBull"
Sebastian Vettel, the whiner, ended up winning both the race in Abu Dhabi and the World Championship. Second and third went to teammates, from McLaren, Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button. In the Championship points Alonso came in second. As noted before, my favorite, Mark Webber came in third. Webber had a shunt with the wall and had to pit for checkup and tire change. When he returned he was way back in the pack and blocked by traffic. He ended up in 8th place for the race. Disappointed, but never complains unlike his whiney teammate Vettel.
WORLD CHAMPION 2010
Vettel might be a whiner, but he can drive like a bat out of hell. And very good in the rain which not all drivers are. This year he racked up 10 pole positions which is more that half of the races. He won 5 races out of the 19. Came in second twice and third three times. He is the youngest World Champion to date, age 23.
Michael Schumacher, who came out of retirement to race this year, had a very scarey accident. He spun so that he was facing traffic and Vitantonio Liuzzi ran over the top of his car. Inches from putting his head in another place.
So, next year will be a long one with 20 races. New addition.....India.
