As much as I hate to say it, Vettel has this season and race in the bag.

This is the fourth race in a row where the Speed broadcast keeps getting interrupted for 4 or 5 seconds at a time with just a blank screen and no sound. Anyone else seeing that? I don't think it's the FIA feed because the Speed crew sound also goes away and they don't say anything about it.

That Yas Marina track screams money. I wonder how much of it I've financed with my long daily commute.

There has to be a one litre fuel sample to be able to taken from the car, and it is only 850ml that has been extracted.

Vettel sent to back of the grid for fuel infringement

Quote:
Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel has been excluded from Saturday’s qualifying results for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after the stewards found his car did not have sufficient fuel onboard to comply with the rules on its return to parc ferme. Vettel, who had qualified in third, will now start from the back of the grid.

The German stopped out on track at the end of Q3, after being told over his radio to pull over at the side of the circuit.

Although, after a lengthy discussion, the FIA stewards accepted that Vettel had stopped due to reasons of ‘force majeure’, there wasn’t enough fuel in his RB8 to provide a one-litre sample in post-qualifying scrutineering, as required by the sport’s technical regulations.

“The stewards heard from the driver and team representatives and studied telemetry evidence that showed the reason why the car was stopped,” explained the FIA in a statement.

"The Stewards accepted the explanation and considered the incident as being a case of force majeure. However a report was received from the Technical Delegate that showed during post-qualifying scrutineering an insufficient quantity of fuel for sampling purposes.

"The Stewards determine that this is a breach of Article 6.6.2 of the FIA Formula One Technical Regulations and the Competitor is accordingly excluded from the results of the Qualifying Session. The Competitor is however allowed to start the race from the back of the grid."

Sebastian Vettel will start from the pitlane following his penalty.
Red Bull's decision to start from the pitlane means it will be able to make some changes to Vettel's car's set-up ahead of the race.
