Abu Dhabi hosts the final round of the 2010 Formula 1 this weekend, and both Red Bull drivers are in with a chance of winning the drivers’ championship.
Mark Webber has the best chance of beating Fernando Alonso to the title. He trails the Spaniard by just eight points – the amount awarded for a sixth-place finish. Webber is looking forward to the desert day-night race.
“The track has a good layout and the twilight aspect gives it a different atmosphere – it's a good event,” said the Aussie. “I think we have a great chance to go there and get a good result. There is a chance of the team getting another Championship, which is an exciting proposition. There are lots of possible outcomes that could still happen, Fernando is in the best position of all of us, but we still have a chance, so let's see what happens.”
Sebastian Vettel needs to overcome both his teammate and a fifteen point deficit to Alonso if he wants to take his maiden championship. However, he won the inaugural race here last year, and took victory in Brazil last Sunday.
“Obviously I have good memories from Abu Dhabi and I will be hoping to get another good result there this year, but let's see,” Vettel said. “There's still everything to play for in the Drivers' Championship.
“Abu Dhabi is a good track; it's fantastic to drive under the hotel bridge with the lights on the roof changing every time you go past. The people are very friendly and I'm looking forward to the race.”
