Article by Christian Andrei, on November 4, 2013

Sebastian Vettel took a very convincing win in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as he got the lead in all laps and completed the race 30 seconds ahead of his team mate Mark Webber. This is the seventh consecutive win for the 2013 world champion. This is the third time that this team took the first two spots for this season. It’s also the 50th victory for the Renault RS27 engine.

Coming in at fourth place is Lotus F1 Team’s Romain Grosjean, which means that there are three Renault-powered cars in the top four. At the start, Poleman Webber lost out to Vettel and Rosberg. This permitted Vettel to get a wide lead throughout the entire race. On lap 20, Webber was able to overtake Rosberg.

This meant that the Red Bull team was able to achieve a significant lead. At this point, Williams F1 Team was on the brink of entering the top ten. Taking 11th place is Pastor Maldonado, who crossed the finish line less than 3secs behind Adrian Sutil who came in at No. 10. Earlier in the race, Valtteri Bottas was in the top 10. However, he ended up in 15th place.

The Caterham F1 Team members finished one after the other with Giedo van der Garde taking the 18th spot ahead of Charles Pic. It was a surprise that Kimi Raikkonen, who started from P22 after being disqualified yesterday, was stopped early. In the first corner, he bumped into a Caterham, breaking his front suspension. He left the race after only two corners. With 513 points, Infiniti Red Bull Racing takes the top position. Mercedes is second with 334 points. Ferrari got third with 323 while Lotus F1 Team has 297 points, earning it a fourth-place finish.
