Formula 1 :: Abu Dhabi GP

Sebastian Vettel won the last race of the Formula 1 season at Abu Dhabi to finish in second place overall in the final 2009 Formula One World Driver’s Championship standings. His Red Bull Racing teammate, Australian Mark Webber, placed second at Abu Dhabi to finish the season on a high note; after five races of being 9th or lower Webber won in Brazil at Interlagos two weeks ago. 2009 World Driver’s Champion Jenson Button finished third overall.

Spectacular Sebastian

This was Vettel’s fourth win of the season and fifth of his young Formula 1 career, in only his second full season behind the wheel. In only his first season with Red Bull Racing, Vettel has shown that he is a force to be reckoned with, and with Mark Webber winning races Red Bull, with their Renault-powered F1 cars, have vaulted to second in the Formula 1 World Builder’s Championship behind newcomers Brawn GP.

Lewis’s to Lose

Lewis Hamilton had the pole position coming out of Saturday’s qualifying, and led for the beginning of the race until his first pit stop. He was unable to make a clear break from Vettel and Webber after his pit stop. It was then that the braking problems Hamilton had been enduring for the start of the race became too great of a problem and he and his crew decided to retire for the race. This marks another disappointing finish this season for Hamilton, who had hoped to repeat as World Drivers Champion for the first time since former teammate Fernando Alonso accomplished the feat in 2005-2006.

    Sports In The Forums

    "FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
