Yesterday, we witnessed a terrifying crash in the opening lap of Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It was between Michael Schumacher and Vitantonio Liuzzi. Thankfully both emerged unhurt from the mess.
Vettel is world champion
Red Bulls cars crash in Turkey – In a very bizarre incident the two Red Bulls cars crashed during Turkish GP. Vettel went to overtake as he believed that he was faster of the two cars. But the end effect didn’t suit any of the Red Bull teammate.
Ferrari team orders at German GP – Massa pulled over towards the end of the race to let Alonso past. However the stewards imposed a fine of $100,000 on the Ferrari team.
Red Bulls’ reliability – Vettel could have wrapped up the WDC a few races ago had he had greater reliability. The car picked up 14 poles and 8 wins in the season but still suffered with reliability issues.
Mark Webber crashed his Red Bull RB6 at the back of Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus and landed upside down. Webber felt Kovalainen’s defence of his position was pointless against a car that was so much faster.
“I’m happy. I was just having a shower and thinking, ‘Mate, you’re lucky to be in one piece.’ “It was a nasty incident. I was surprised by what happened. I’m a little bit tender here and there but the car did a great job.” said Webber
New teams are too slow with respect to established powerhouses like Red Bull, Mclaren, Ferrari and Renault. Teams have been critical of their slow paces with Ferrari most vocal of the lot.
Gilles Villeneuve’s first Grand Prix win and that too in front of 100,000 home supporters.
What a moment for the great man!
