"Stop the car - stop the car" - Vettel was told so in a hurry!! :D

Vettel excluded from qualifying results for fuel infringement


2012 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX - Qualifying results

Felipe Massa from past 4-5 races, has remained close to Alonso.

I still do not know if he gets exactly same car or inferior(or part test) car.

Felipe Massa - " I did not have all the updates we brought here: that was definitely not great, but looking at Fernando’s result, it didn’t make a difference."

So its clear that Alonso gets priority. He got the updates but not Massa. And which also means that, with update Massa might have atleast matched Alonso!

crap. he is going to start from the back of the field?

Yes, either at back of grid OR pit lane. Mostly they will chose pit lane as it gives clear field.

Pat Fry, Ferrari chassis director - "We had brought various updates here, some only fitted to Fernando’s car, because we do not yet have enough of them for both."

Hehe, making it clear that Alonso always gets a better car!

Nope he has good car, he can easily reach atleast 3rd. (or 4th if Alonso manages to keep him behind)

This is where Ferrari needs Massa to come handy. They would want Massa to hold off Vettel. If he manages to do that, Alonso has good chance.

Vettel has damage on his front wing, will he have to pit. The pit crew are out ... but they return to the garage as Vettel decides to stay out. He's now down in 18th.
