Vettel likes to brake records!!!Sebastian Vettel secured his 14th pole this season, beating Lewis Hamilton in the final lap of qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Hamilton little earlier pass his teammate, Jenson Button, just 0.009s. Along with Button from the second row will start Mark Webber, followed by two Ferrari cars, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Masa. Behind one row reserved for the Mercedes GP, with Nico Rosberg ahead of Michael Schumacher and Force India cars, Adrian Sutil at ninth and Paul di Resta on tenth.
Pastor Maldonado has 10 places grid penalty for engine change, it was his ninth engine this season. Today was the 17th fastest and that means he will start from last position. Rubens Barrichello wasn`t able to record time during the first part of qualifying due to a leak of oil from his car.
We expect an interesting race tomorrow starting at 14:00 CET
