Red Bull technical chief Adrian Newey does not want team orders to get involved in the finale to the season that could see either of the team's drivers crowned world champion. Newey said of the battle for supremacy between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber: "It is a drivers' championship and that means there shouldn't be team orders." However, he also said: "If one of our drivers is out of it, then I hope he would be magnanimous to help the other."

Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina venue can stay on the F1 calendar "for ever", according to F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

After rain affected the previous three Grands Prix, the drivers could be forgiven for thinking they would be basking in sunshine in Abu Dhabi for the final weekend of the season. But the rain appears to have followed the F1 teams to the desert with light showers falling on Tuesday and Wednesday - so rare is precipitation in that part of the world that it made the local news. More rain is forecast over the weekend, although race day looks sunny.

Daniel Ricciardo will test for Red Bull in the sessions for young drivers at Abu Dhabi next week. The Australian, who is their test and reserve driver, also drove for them in last year's test.

Last race of the season, but I think I’ll post this little ‘heads up’ advice again.

formula1.com allows you to view in real time the official timing monitor (follow the ‘live timing’ link - these days you have to register first, but it’s still free).

I like to have this screen up on my laptop while watching the sessions on a second monitor (or TV or whatever you’re using). It also provides a load of other information. Just explore it a bit. Great to have the info for the full field when the TV feed only shows bits and pieces (the front runners, mostly).

This Sunday I think I’ll go and watch the race on a big screen at a local sports bar with a few friends, though.

Lewis Hamilton has admitted he would love to see Mark Webber emerge victorious in this year's Formula world title race if he cannot claim the championship for himself. "He has been told by his team what position he is and against adversity he has kept at it," Hamilton said. "He has done an awesome job."
Full story: Daily Express

Formula 1 drivers are well-versed in the use of extreme measures in the pursuit of speed but Fernando Alonso, the 2010 championship leader, has taken things a stride further by having his legs waxed. "I'm surprised how he was able to take the pain," said Hamilton. "Mark [Webber] pointed it out and was asking: 'How far has it gone up?' I was like: 'Wow, they are shiny.'"
Full story: The Guardian

The word from the Spanish journalists is that the Ferrari simulator says the Red Bull will be 0.4 seconds quicker a lap at Abu Dhabi than the Ferrari. Might account for Alonso's tetchy mood and picked cuticles?!

Red Bull decision for only Vettel only to do Pirelli test next week taken "six weeks ago", according to Christian Horner.
BBC F1 commentator Jonathan Legard on Twitter

Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton will both miss next week's Pirelli tyre test in Abu Dhabi, with McLaren the only front-running team that will not use a current race driver for the two-day run.

Nick Heidfeld has confirmed he is in discussions with Renault for a drive in 2011.

The Australian Grand Prix's place on next year's Formula 1 calendar is under threat because of a row over fees with CAMS, the country's motorsport governing body.

Felipe Massa is confident that his difficult 2010 season will prove to be just a blip in his career, and says this year's form does not necessarily mean he will be overshadowed by team-mate Fernando Alonso again in 2011.

Former F1 driver Jean Alesi says it is "not true" that Red Bull will not use team orders to win the title if they need them. "They are trapped because of the way they have discussed it," he said. "They have tried to say they are clean and they don't do it, but that is misinformation. It is not true. They will definitely use it."
Full story: The Abu Dhabi National

Former FIA president Max Mosley says there is "no doubt that this championship will be devalued if Alonso wins and the points obtained by breaking the rules on team orders define the final result". (The Times)

If Fernando Alonso prevails on Sunday by seven points or fewer, the knives will come out for the Spaniard and his team. It would be a shame indeed were that to be the case. Alonso has driven brilliantly since mid-season.
Full story: Daily Telegraph

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber have been given the blessing of Bernie Ecclestone to use team orders to defeat Fernando Alonso in the title showdown - as long as it is not done Ferrari-style.

Williams Adam Parr says new finance is in place for 2011 after replacing all outgoing sponsors. No word on drivers.

Renault is set to sell a 25% stake in their F1 team to Malaysian carmaker Proton. A contract formalising the sale will be signed on Wednesday. Proton's Group Lotus brand will become Renault's title sponsor.
Full story: Le Figaro via speedtv.com

Fiat has bought back a 5% stake in Ferrari that was sold five years ago to Abu Dhabi investment company Mubadala. It is believed the move ties in with recent rumours that the Italian carmaker is considering later selling a significant part of its majority stake in the famous Maranello-based F1 team team. The buy-back takes Fiat's shareholding up to 90%.

Formula 1 is set for a surge in popularity following one of the most exciting and closely-fought seasons in recent history. With four drivers still in contention for the championship at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the sport can expect one of its biggest ever television audiences as fans tune in to discover who wins the 2010 title. "I hope and believe that it has been good for the sport," said McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh. "It is a fantastic sport, it is the pinnacle of motor racing - with the best cars in the world, and the best drivers in the world, competing."

What a cliffhanger of a race! Congratulations to Vettel - all said and done, well deserved.

And thanks to you, Chode, for running the F1 ping list. I’m looking forward to next year.

Caught qualifying yesterday on one of the links you provided. A bit choppy, and I had to restart it a couple of times, but with the F1 Live Timing on another screen it worked well enough.

Had access to some backdoor BBC feed midseason - almost full HD with no dropouts, unfortunately it lasted only for two races. If I catch on to another, I’ll pass it on here.

Cheers!

Here's one from my last 'race' in my late 928 GTS at the l'Anneau du Rhin (privately owned race track close to Colmar/Alsacia).
