Red Bull finishes strongest

Red Bull finished the F1 season in style as its drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber claimed the top two places in the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand prix.

In Brazil Webber won the race at Interlagos and Vettel settled for fourth in that race but both drivers finished ahead of the Brawn GP drivers.

If the start of the season belonged to Brawn GP then in a way the end of it belonged to Red Bull.

But I have to mention that had McLaren's Lewis Hamilton not retired in the race he would probably have won it because he had the fastest car all weekend.

In third place was the new champion Jensen Button who failed to overtake Webber in the last few laps of the race. I think he should have overtaken Webber to show off his driving skills as champion but Webber also defended his position very well.

Rubens Barrichello finished fourth just ahead of BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld.

I should say I was impressed by Toyota's Kamui Kobayashi who finished sixth despite starting twelfth on the grid. Also this was Kobayashi's second F1 race as he stood in for Tim Glock.

The last two points were taken by the other Toyota driver Jarno Trulli ahead of Torro Rosso-Ferrari's Sebastien Buemi who claimed the last point.

So there were no points for both McLaren and Ferrari in Abu Dhabi. Heikki Kovalainen finished eleventh just ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.

Giancarlo Fisichella finished in 16th position and thus failed to score a single point with his Ferrari.

I was very impressed by the Yas Marina Circuit and I think its one of the best F1 circuits if not the best. Also this night race was far more interesting than the other night one in Singapore.
