  1. Half way round the rollercoster…Filipe gets a message in his ear….

    “Filipe….Alonso is faster than you…..”

  2. Its nice to see F1 drivers actually having fun instead of racing each other on the track …. Great video Keith .

    Looking through the photos at the end of the post, I notice something:

    In nearly every shot, every single one of the remaining championship contenders looks completely relaxed…

    … except for Mark Webber.

    (I’d really like to see Webber take the title, but I seriously think Alonso’s going to take it.)

    I may have to make the trip to Abu Dhabi one day…

  5. Good to see they have all shaved for the occasion!

    Makes Mark especially look so much younger.

    No matter what Alonso says Massa seems to laugh at it, Kimi on the other hand would have fallen sleep in that.

    It sure was nice of Ferrari to let Massa sit up front with Alonso.

    I wonder how much downforce does that front wing produce…

    What a great acceleration, its a shame that after it looses its rythm and becomes quite slow. Where are the loops? :)

    Alonso’s face is so funny :)

    Fact: the rollercoaster acceleration is quicker than the grand prix car.

  11. That video is hilarious, watching Alonso’s face turn into a rubber mask!
