Vettel with the «pole»;  Alonso will start third

AS.COM.- Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) has gotten a little closer to his goal of winning the third Formula One world championship today, by giving a final grand lap in the qualifying session of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which will allow him to start from behind the German Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) and the British Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) and two places ahead of the Australian Mark Webber.

With this result Fernando Alonso has fate in his hands to get his third world championship in his first season with the Ferrari team, after being practically evicted in the middle of the season.

Tomorrow, if Vettel won, it would be enough for him to finish second, third or fourth, which in normal conditions does not seem very difficult.

With ten seconds to go to the end of the qualifying session, with night already falling on the Yas Marina circuit, Alonso began his second and last attempt in the qualifying session, to try to improve the fifth place he occupied and above all to overtake Webber, his main rival for the title, to eight points, who had rolled 113 thousandths of a second faster.

If in the first sector Alonso lost a tenth in relation to Webber, in the second, the fastest, he snatched three, and in the third and last he lost again just over a tenth, which allowed him at the end of his lap rise to third place after the unattainable Vettel, who achieved his tenth pole of the season, and Hamilton.
