3 key moments of 2010 season

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.

 

Vettels wins inaugural Abu Dhabi GP

2009 season ended at Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi with a win for Sebastian Vettel. Red Bull driver scored a one-two Sebastian-Vettelwith teammate Mark Webber and World Champion Jenson Button third. This was Vettel’s fourth win of the season and it was also the third time Red Bull scored a one-two this year.

“The car was fantastic, it worked brilliantly on both tyres. it was a pleasure to sit in the car,” Vettel said. “To sum up the season: up and down. The car is getting quicker – it’s a shame the season is ending.”

Race favorite Lewis Hamilton did not finish the race due to rear brake problems. After qualifying on pole yesterday Lewis Hamilton was expected to win the race and end season in style for Mclaren. But after his early exit all eyes turned to Kovalainen and Raikkonen. But Ferrari had a miserable day in office with both Raikkonen and Fisichella struggling for pace. All three drivers finished off points and Mclaren secured third in constructor’s championship.

The otherwise boring race had a decent finish when in the last two laps Webber and Button were fighting for the second place.

F1 season end with huge driver shuffle expected and it will be back with 13 teams (14?), no refuelling, no KERS, no Mosley (:D). 133 days till it all gets going again!!
