Abu Dhabi GP: A Difficult Final Race for Scuderia Ferrari

It was not the best of days for Scuderia Ferrari in the final Grand Prix of the season here in Abu Dhabi. Fernando Alonso finished ninth and Kimi Raikkonen came home tenth. Both drivers got away well, the two of them making up two places, coming round at the end of the opening lap in fifth and sixth places. Shortly after that, Fernando passed Kimi and made his first pit stop, followed next time round by the Finn. However, coming in early did not work out for them as they lost a lot of time in traffic, finding themselves just outside the...

Abu Dhabi GP: A Fighting Finale

Fernando Alonso: “Today’s qualifying was very tricky on a weekend that, in general, has been more complicated than usual. Changing the engine after the final free practice session created a few extra problems and it took until Q2 for the car to perform consistently. Tomorrow, I expect an uphill struggle, partly because, over the past two days, we haven’t done any practice starts and I have never run with a full fuel load. But at the same time, I really want to give it my all and try and make up as much ground as possible. It will be a special...

De La Rosa: “Yas Marina, a Track with Everything.”

“I’ve always really enjoyed driving the Abu Dhabi track, because it brings together features from many other circuits,” Pedro de la Rosa told www.ferrari.com when talking about the track that hosts the final race of the 2014 season. “In the first sector we find the quick corners, followed by some very heavy braking points before the chicane at turn 5 and there’s a final sector with high downforce corners where one needs to be extremely precise because it’s easy to run wide off the racing line.” Overtaking and turns. “The long straight which...

Abu Dahbi GP: Kimi 7th, Fernando Only Does Two Laps

The second free practice session of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was a difficult one for Scuderia Ferrari, as dusk fell on the Yas Marina circuit. Fernando Alonso had to stop out on track, between turns 19 and 20, after just 2 laps, with an electrical problem. Therefore getting through the programme was all down to Kimi Raikkonen who did 33 laps, finishing off the comparison of the Soft and Supersoft tyres and doing some long run race simulations. The Finn continued working on car set-up before fitting the Supersoft tyres, with which he set a...
