Sebastian Vettel claimed his seventh consecutive victory in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, leading every lap of the way.
Vettel dominated proceedings, finishing half a minute ahead of team mate Mark Webber who he passed for the lead on the first lap.
Webber slipped behind Nico Rosberg in the opening exchange but retook the Mercedes driver in the middle of the race to ensure Red Bull’s third one-two of the season.
Romain Grosjean finished fourth ahead of Fernando Alonso, who remains under investigation having passed Jean-Eric Vergne off the track following his final pit stop.
Alonso went on to pass Paul di Resta, who took sixth, and Lewis Hamilton, who fell to seventh from fourth on the grid, losing time early in the race behind Esteban Gutierrez’s Sauber.
Felipe Massa fell behind his team mate during the final stint leaving him eighth ahead of Sergio Perez and Adrian Sutil.
A trying weekend for Kimi Raikkonen ended in disappointment within seconds of the start when he broke his suspension in the first corner, making him the race’s only retirement.
