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.

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

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 :(

      Now that we're getting Windows 11 and things are starting to change up more than the past few years with Windows 10, I un-pinned the old Windows 10 thread and started this one.
       
      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Electronic Arts officially confirms Codemasters acquisition
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Codemasters, the British video games company known for its wide range of racing titles, is now a part of Electronic Arts. The acquisition has been in the works for some time now, and today, EA officially confirmed the move on a blog post that welcomed the racing giant into the fold.

      The acquisition has been an interesting journey to keep an eye on. Take-Two Interactive was originally in talks to purchase Codemasters with a deal that involved almost a billion dollars. However, EA threw a wrench into the takeover talks by making a "knockout bid" worth $1.2 billion, which Codemasters went on to accept in December.

      "This is the beginning of an exciting new era for racing games and content as we bring together the talented teams at Electronic Arts and Codemasters," said Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a statement. "Racing fandom continues to grow worldwide, and the franchises in our combined portfolio will enable us to create innovative new experiences and bring more players into the excitement of cars and motorsport. Our teams will be a global powerhouse in racing entertainment, with amazing games for players on every platform, and we can’t wait to get started."

      EA's racing portfolio already includes popular franchises like Need for Speed and Burnout. Now with Codemasters on its side, that list is increasing to include Dirt, GRID, Formula 1, and Project CARS, among other series that expand the publisher's scope beyond just arcade racers while also enabling it to have multiple racing game launches a year.
