Guess the Pole 2023 - Round 23 Abu Dhabi [+ RESULTS]

#1

Post by XcraigX »

The updated layout has provided a bit more excitement from what has traditionally been a dull track. But this still is low on my list for excitement.
This is the final round for the drivers and the final round to determine the Accuracy Championship. Can Michelin Fever take both titles?

Get your guess in early as the deadline is THIS FRIDAY!

===============================================================================================

Round 23 - Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2023, Yas Marina Circuit - 24-26 November

Track Length: 5.554 Km (3.451 Miles)
Race Laps: 55 (305.361 Km)

2022 Pole time: Max Verstappen(RedBull) 1:23.823

The deadline for entries is before the start of Friday First Free Practice (Friday 09:30 GMT/BST)

I see this as a 'hanging chad' type of event.

Michael has seemingly edited his post. However, there is clear evidence of his initial intention as well.

I think The Fastlane Supreme Court will have to step in and invalidate the edit. 4:42:112 stands!
