Abu Dhabi GP 2010: Vettel Takes Pole As Finale Hots Up
Sebastian Vettel has taken pole position for tomorrow’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as he tries to keep his title chances alive. The German driver looked quick all through Q3 and did just enough to get into first.
Lewis Hamilton lines up second, he keeps the position after the stewards decided not to penalise him over an incident with Felipe Massa in Q2. Team mate Jenson Button will start directly behind him on track in 4th.
In third place is Fernando Alonso. The Ferrari isn’t as quick as the McLaren’s or Red Bull’s this weekend but the Spaniard did enough to slot himself right where he needs to be to win the world championship tomorrow. Closest rival Webber starts only 5th.
If the race finished as the line up tomorrow, Alonso would be the world champion.
