Formula One Betting Online: Only two races remain in this exciting season of Formula One racing, as the top drivers in the world enter the glitz and glam of Abu Dhabi, ready to tear into the night with the roar of their engines. One of the few twilight races on the circuit, Abu Dhabi is as much about style as it is substance.
The race starts on Sunday, November 4 at 5:00 PM local Abu Dhabi time. This means it will be 8:00 PM ET over here, late enough for the normal person to wake up and check out, as he makes sure his Formula one wagering goes according to plan.
Abu Dhabi is a relatively new event on the F1 circuit, starting in just 2009. However, already, one man has put his face on the event, and his identity is no surprise.
Sebastian Vettel, the current darling of Formula One, took home the first two races in the history of this event. The German superstar started off the season hot, winning six of the first eight events. He then lost three straight, seemingly to remind everyone he is a mere mortal. Look for the young phenom to come in as the favorite as he seeks an impressive three peat to start the history of this track.
This exciting track was designed by, who else, Herman Tilke, the renowned track architect, and will excite fans and drivers with its extreme speeds and unique turns. As one of the few tracks to run counter-clockwise, this track will twist and turn, giving drivers fits as they try to figure out its eccentricities.
Make sure to set your alarm and get up at a decent hour to check if your Formula One wagering venture turned out positive for you in Abu Dhabi this November.
2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Winner - Raikkonen ice cool after Abu Dhabi triumph
Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen lived up to his ‘Iceman’ nickname after taking victory in the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at Yas Marina on Sunday. The Finn only qualified for the big race in fifth and, following Saturday’s pole run, he had pleaded for “just a little more time”.
But on race day the the 33-year-old was at his flying best as he cashed in on the bad luck of early leader Lewis Hamilton, who lost all power when out in front on the 20th lap, to register the first win of his F1 comeback season. It was also a first victory for his Lotus team in more than 25 years — their last triumph was achieved by the great Ayrton Senna in America way back in June 1987.
And, typical to his character, Raikkonen was the least excited driver of the three on the podium. “This win is for the people and their belief that we could be up there,” he said.
2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Winner - Lewis Hamilton wins Abu Dhabi GP battle with Fernando Alonso

McLaren's Jenson Button took third from Red Bull's Mark Webber while Paul di Resta was ninth for Force India.
Hamilton said on arrival in Abu Dhabi that winning the final two races here and in Brazil would help turn around a difficult season in which he has struggled on and off the track.
