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.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
