A combination of rain in Q3 and drivers’ inability to stay off the Red Bull Ring’s new curbs shuffled the starting grid away from what’s been typical in recent races. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) won his fifth pole of the season. Teammate Nico Rosberg originally qualified second but lined up P6 due to a gearbox-replacement penalty.

F1: Abu Dhabi – Rosberg wins third straight to close 2015

Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) won the Brazilian Grand Prix two weeks ago. He started on pole and led the entire race; the same for teammate Lewis Hamilton in second, and more or less the entire top part of the grid.

I love this form of this sport, but Brazil scored one for the haters. Rosberg and Hamilton topped qualifying again at Yas Marina. Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari)...
