The dusty weather was a disappointment in an otherwise eventful race.

I wonder what's happened to Vettel's car. Saw he had to stop at the side and get a lift back in the safety car.

Just noticed this thread.

Pleased Hamilton is on pole.

Vettel may just have stopped due to low fuel? I missed that so not sure.

Well, I heard Vettel's team radio, and they told him repeatedly to stop the car, so it sounded a bit urgent.

It could be anything, but a gearbox issue or low fuel would mean a grid-place penalty. We'll have to wait and see.

According to Christian Horner it was Renault that advised the team to stop the car. So engine, alternator or KERS.

I think Ferrari told Alonso to slow down so he wouldn't have to start next to Badonado.

Vettel had insufficient fuel for sampling. Disqualified from qualifying. Thrown to back of grid

YES!

Hahahaha............... at least the FIA have been consistent in their punishments, anything less than exclusion from quali and there would have been hell to pay.

Having said that I REALLY don't want Alonso to win the championship, can't stand the arrogant ****.

I really want Mark or Kimi to win.

This decision pleases me immensely. a) because I dislike Vettel and b) because it is going to make for an interesting race tomorrow.

Why don't the drivers and team just admit that they are low on fuel and have made a mistake, instead of pleading innocence and pretending they don't know why the car was stopped?

"We've cocked up and slightly under fueled the car" is so much simpler than blaming Renault or anonymous engineers etc.

Would you voluntarily give out that information if it meant you would get an automatic disqualification?

Though I think if you go down the route of not giving the whole story the punishment should be more severe.

I posted earlier that I thought it was because of low fuel. Had a feeling that was the case. See it so much the last few years.

And yeah, they don't wanna say that's why, because its auto disqualification. Although, I very much doubt they'd ever get away with it, even if they do blame an engine problem, the FIA needs the fuel sample from the car. So they are going to find out at some point that they didn't have enough fuel.

I've heard that they can tip the cars/open injectors etc and get the fuel out for the required sample, however I think that's only after a race. They couldn't do that between quali and the race as the car is in parc ferme.

A bad mistake from Red Bull at a critical moment, it would be unfortunate if something like this ends up deciding the championship but as much as I despise Ferrari having a winner that isn't Red Bull would be great

Abu Dhabi, only 8 laps so far and so much action. Lap 1 accident, I suppose one of the ForceIndia is going to get penalized? What do you guys think about the accident between HRT and Rosberg?

For anyone watching the live commentary, it says that vettel made a mistake under safety car. That is not true, Ricciardo infront of him kept stepping on the brakes and Vettel had to swerve to miss him and hit a marker at the side of the track doing further damage to his wing.

He has just came into the pits and got a new wing.

I think Ricciardo should be penalised/warned about that, he was repeatedly doing it. Stepping on the brakes over and over, obviously trying to get brake temp up, but you just cant do that with a car so close behind. Not as violently as he was anyway

Abu Dhabi, only 8 laps so far and so much action. Lap 1 accident, I suppose one of the ForceIndia is going to get penalized? What do you guys think about the accident between HRT and Rosberg?

Racing incident, Karthikayen shouldn't have lifted where he did but I don't think that can be penalised. No fault on Rosebergs part, when Karthikayen lifted, the closing speed was so great that there was no way Rosberg could've avoided that with the gap they had between them.

If the HRT had an issue then I don't believe any action will be taken.

Love watching on TV with live timing on laptop.

EDIT:

Hamilton is out. No engine power. Out on lap 21 :(

Bloody mclaren reliability :(

      AWS and Formula 1 announce six new racing performance stats
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Formula 1 With less than two weeks to go for the resumption of the 2020 season, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Formula 1 have announced six new performance statistics that will help fans analyze the flood of real-time data during races. This will help them gauge the performance of the cars on track and predict race outcomes. These statistics will use a variety of AWS offerings, including Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon SageMaker.

      To start off, on July 3-5, at the RedBull Ring in Austria, the debutant 'Car Performance Scores' will display an individual car’s performance using four metrics: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line, and Car Handling⁠. These are vital indicators of a car's race performance and will allow fans to compare different F1 cars on the track.

      The Car Performance Score stats are in addition to the five other metrics that will debut this season. Complete details on those are as follows:

      Vis-à-vis the initiative, Rob Smedley, the Chief Engineer of Formula 1, stated that “We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.” While Mike Clayville, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS remarked that “This year, we’re thrilled to extend the power of F1 data in the cloud and unlock new insights that help fans understand more of F1’s rich complexity.”

      HTC blunder confirms specifications and pricing of its U12 Plus before event
      by Paul Hill



      HTC is set to unveil its HTC U12 at an event tomorrow, there’s a good chance it will officially unveil the HTC U12 Plus too. Unfortunately for HTC, its engineers appear to have left a test webpage for the HTC U12 Plus open for the public to see. The mistake, which was quickly rectified, now means that specifications and pricing of the upcoming premium handset were leaked ahead of the official reveal.

      The premium device will be available in China with a price tag of 5,888 yuan, roughly $920. At least one of the options for the device will include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. HTC has decided to opt out of using an OLED screen and has instead gone with a 6-inch WQHD+ (1440 x 2880) Super LCD6. The U12 Plus appears to come in a variety of colours including maroon, black, and navy blue.

      The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and has a slot to add a microSD card up to 2TB. The U12 Plus is equipped with Boomsound speakers and is classified as IP68-rated water and dust resistance giving it some innate protection against the elements. Lastly, it is powered by a 3,500mAh battery which should see it last for about a day but we won’t know for certain until it gets into people’s hands.

      Let us know, are you excited for HTC’s upcoming devices?

      HTC officially unveils the squeezable semi-translucent U11+
      by Dreyer Smit

      Without making too much of a fuss, HTC has officially taken the veil off of the not-so-secret U11+, a larger sibling to the flagship the company launched earlier this year. The device brings along with it the same elegant design, incorporates an edge-to-edge display, and a squeezable frame that one can find on devices like the Google Pixel 2.



      Specification-wise, the device isn't a far cry from what has been leaked earlier, with it sporting the usual flagship specifications. The U11+ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, with it coming with two flavors in relation to its storage and RAM configurations; namely a 4GB RAM with 64GB storage option, and a 6GB RAM with 128GB storage onboard. The display follows the trend set by devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8, with it being a 6-inch QHD+ DCI-P3 compliant panel that supports HDR10.

      Size wise it's a little taller than the U11, by 4.5mm to be exact, which makes way for the 3930 mAh battery, that should help power the display through the average workday. Beyond that, the device does not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack as is the "norm" with flagship devices these days, however, it does come with HTC USonic noise-canceling USB-C headphones in the box. As for the front-facing speakers, these are powered by BoomSound and are reportedly 30% louder than their counterparts on the slightly smaller U11.

      As for the camera, the device sports a 12M sensor with a f/1.7 aperture with phase detect autofocus, optical image stabilization, and a dual-LED flash. On the flip side, the front-facing camera is powered by an 8M shooter with a f/2.0 aperture, which should make for some good looking selfies.

      Full specifications for the device are:

      As for the strange coil visible through the translucent glass, the device, unfortunately, does not support wireless charging as it would suggest. HTC has not yet updated its official site or noted in its mailed PR statement in which markets the U11+ will be available; however, according to The Verge who had some hands-on time with it, the U11+ will be available to buy unlocked, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, for £699 from November 20th in the UK, and in Europe, where the device will cost €799. We will keep you updated once more information is made available.
