Bottom post of the previous page:

I think the last race of the season is toninght when the have the second race to Mario 1in Seoul above. I think by that by winning the redflagged and restarted race yesterday Mitch Evans has kept himself in with a chance of the title.....championship leader Stoffel Vandoorne’s advantage was sliced to just 21 points with one race remaining. So he has to still be the favourite and just needs a good finish. If there is justice Vandoorne will win it.

I think they use the stadard FIA25 points ftw scale, but then have 3 bonus points for pole and fastest lap points. But its far too complex with fanboost and all sort of other contrived things.

Apparently thr final race starts in 30 mins. I wont be tuning in....., happy to read about after the event or watch the highlights..

So Mercedes is leaving FE and where is Vandoorne going? If there were more F1 teams he should have been given another chance there outside of Alonso's shadow but we know that's not gonna happen. It's a shame Eric Bachelart isn't in IndyCar anymore or else that would have been a logical option.

Battery fire curtails testing. No word on how much damage was done to the car, but that looks like a big fire.

Since Nico is an investor, I think this works:

And now the Middle East situation is potentially going to affect Abu Dhabi.....
Could Abu Dhabi GP be cancelled? F1 safety fears over Gaza conflict

Questions have been asked about the safety of F1's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, over fears that an Israeli invasion of Gaza will destabilise the Middle East and make the UAE a target


F1 teams have questioned the safety of this year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as growing instability in the Middle East threatens peace in the region.

Officials are understood to be monitoring the situation over fears that the conflict between Israel and Hamas could draw in neighbouring countries and factions, making the United Arab Emirates, including Abu Dhabi, a target.

The issue was discussed briefly last weekend in Austin when one team principal asked about the risks of racing at the Yas Marina circuit during a meeting with F1 officials.

They were told that the threat level is not currently seen as significant, and the race is due to go ahead as planned on November 26. However, governments are preparing for the possibility that conflict will spread beyond Gaza following Hamas’s terror attacks in Israel earlier this month.

2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix went ahead despite a missile attack 10 miles from the circuit, an attack by Houthi rebels in response to Saudi’s bombing of the Yemen – but Russian GP was cancelled due to Ukraine conflict

America is racing to shore up air defences around its military facilities in the region, which include the Al-Dhafra air base, 30 miles away from the Abu Dhabi circuit.

It is feared that Israel’s imminent invasion of Gaza could disrupt the fragile balance of power in the region, potentially drawing Hamas-supporting Iran into the conflict, along with other groups that it backs, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, has deepened ties with Israel in recent years and is allied with the US, which has already made both countries a target for attacks.

Two ballistic missiles fired by Houthi rebels at the Al-Dhafra base were intercepted by the US last year. They came a week after drone attacks on an Abu Dhabi oil depot, which killed three people, and at the international airport, virtually adjacent to Yas Marina, which started a fire.

Later in the year, another Houthi attack struck a Saudi Arabian oil facility during the Grand Prix weekend, which came close to cancellation during a fraught drivers’ meeting.

Should the situation escalate, then practical concerns could also threaten the Abu Dhabi race, with the potential for flight disruptions in the area.

F1 has not commented on the situation.
