2013 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Congratulations to Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing!!!
Four consecutive double (WDC and WCC) championships were something phenomenal.

Hope this will excite Abu Dhabi.

Excellent!
As you said, with the championship already decided and with drivers leaving either the sport or transferring to another team it'll hopefully create some fun racing dynamics (push the car harder, don't let the team mate through, ignore the "box" call)

I think if he makes it through the last 3 races without his car crapping out he's doing well

Excellent photos, as always! The car covered up is a cool shot. Reminds me of Mad Max

Happy Halloween

Similar to a points spread, let's wager how many seconds SuperSeb will finish ahead this race. lol
I'm going to say 8.53 seconds

I just read that Vettel's burnout, fence climb, glove throw and lack of reporting to the paddock cost Red Bull about $33,700 dollars - or $25K euros. I suppose it was completely worth it given the significance of the celebration.

Oh that little celebration charges? its nothing....and just breaking the text of the rule. No biggie....if I won the world champ the fourth time, i'd spend that money too!!!
