    for best results, prime teles with teleconverters serve well
    i used 18-135 kit lens, mostly at 135. most of my shots are cropped, 100-400 is ideal for day light. at night, i would have liked something faster then 5.6

    James Allen's Abu Dhabi GP verdict

    This was a fitting way to end a really extraordinary season.

    Sebastian Vettel is a worthy world champion as he and the Red Bull were the fastest car and driver combination this year.

    He has had some good days and some bad days, but over the season he definitely deserves his crown.

    He becomes the youngest ever world champion, being 167 days younger than Lewis Hamilton was when he won the 2008 title.

    He can add that to his other records: being youngest points scorer, pole sitter, podium finisher and race winner.

    If you look back over the last five years, Fernando Alonso lowered the age bar, then Lewis Hamilton and now Vettel. I wonder how much younger drivers can get…

    But it’s not his youth we are celebrating this evening, it is his skill as a racing driver.

    Again today he was flawless; taking pole under intense pressure on Saturday and then driving brilliantly to victory today.

    Champions need a bit of luck and he was lucky today on several counts.

    First when Hamilton pitted, he came out behind Kamui Kobayashi and Robert Kubica, the latter of whom held him up for most of the race.

    Second, when Vettel himself stopped, Kobayshai made a mistake as he came out and so Vettel was able to get ahead.

    That put two cars between him and Hamilton and gave him the cushion for victory.

    Third, his main title rival Fernando Alonso was the victim of a suicidal strategy call by Ferrari which brought him out behind Vitaly Petrov and Nico Rosberg.

    The team wanted to cover Webber’s stop but there was no way that this tactic was going to work as Petrov and Rosberg had already stopped and were only 19 seconds behind him on the road, so he was always going to come out behind them.

    It ended Alonso’s title hopes right there and to add insult to injury Kubica used his strategy of starting on the hard tyres and running long, to come out ahead of the Ferrari as well.

    Having started third and needing only fourth place, Alonso and Ferrari contrived to finish seventh.

    Mark Webber wasn’t really in the hunt this weekend.

    He was six tenths slower than Vettel in qualifying and had to pit today quite early as his tyres were going off and this dropped him down the field.

    He could have tried the same tactic as Rosberg and Petrov and pitted under the safety car. This might have given him a decent result, but it is unlikely that Ferrari would have made the mistake they did if he had gone that route, so it wouldn’t have changed his championship position.

    And so another season comes to an end and we look forward to 2011, when we will have adjustable rear wings, Pirelli tyres and a host of other new things.

    Let’s hope it’s as good a season as this one

    How did Ferrari make that strategy mistake with Alonso?

    The championship is over, the title is decided in Sebastian Vettel’s favour but the nagging question everyone is wrestling with tonight is, how did Ferrari get its tactics so wrong?

    We have seen often this season how strategy can win races, but today we saw it lose a championship. Of course no championship is won or lost on one race, but when a driver has an eight point lead and needs only a top four finish, it can cost a championship if you get it wrong.

    Fernando Alonso started the race in third position, needed only to finish fourth and yet the team contrived to lose him positions so he ended up seventh. It meant that Vettel beat him to the championship by four points.

    Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali tonight declined to go into details of how the decision to pit Alonso on lap 15 was arrived at. He did however give us an inkling of the considerations.

    “We made a wrong decision in terms of strategy for three reasons: we marked a rival with two cars (Alonso and Massa), we were unduly concerned about the wear rate of the soft tyres and we did not take into consideration the difficulty of getting past other cars on the track.”

    The reason they made the mistake was because they were too concerned with what Mark Webber was doing and failed to see the bigger picture.

    Webber radioed in to say that his tyres were losing performance and on lap 12 he pitted for new hard tyres. He rejoined behind the Toro Rosso of Jaime Alguersuari, who held him up for two laps losing him almost two seconds.

    Before the race, there was concern about how long the soft tyres would last before they started to degrade. Based in data from Friday and Saturday practice, there were concerns that they might start to go off quite quickly.

    Seeing Webber in difficulty as early as lap 11/12 clearly made Ferrari worry about how long Alonso’s tyres would go. But it was the same for everyone and Alonso was arguably in the best shape at this point, lapping in the high 1m 45s range, which was the fastest of the leading cars.

    At this stage he had a lead of just 10 seconds over Robert Kubica in the Renault, who had started the race on hard tyres and would therefore clearly be running long. Right behind him was Adrian Sutil, likewise on a hard tyre strategy. But more significantly Alonso had a lead of just 16 seconds over Nico Rosberg, who had pitted under the Lap 1 safety car and 19 seconds lead over Renault’s Vitaly Petrov, who had done the same.

    A pit stop at Yas Marina Circuit takes around 22 seconds, so by coming in on lap 15 as Alonso did, he was inevitably going to drop behind these cars. And in the case of Rosberg and Petrov, they were not going to stop again.

    Now to the point about underestimating how hard it would be to overtake the Renault in particular. In qualifying, Petrov was the third fastest car through the speed trap at 316km/h. Alonso was able to do just 312km/h on the straight. So it was always going to be difficult, The Renault F Duct is among the most efficient in the field. In addition, last season proved how hard it is to overtake on this circuit.

    To be fair to Ferrari, Red Bull has put Webber on strategies which require him to pass cars, such as Singapore, which is hardly the easiest place to overtake, but they really underestimated Petrov and his Renault’s speed.

    Much has been made of the fact that Renault supplies engines to Red Bull so he would be particularly obstructive, but I think Petrov was driving for himself and for his own career tonight. He will have done his prospects no harm at all with this drive.

    Alonso could afford to have only three cars finish in front of him, which is what he had on lap 14 and with this move he invited another four to move ahead, two of whom would not be stopping.

    It’s surely not possible that Ferrari could simply have failed to realise Rosberg and Petrov’s positions. Like all teams they have a highly paid strategy person, who has a sophisticated computer to give advice. He would then propose a strategy to Andrea Stell, Alonso’s engineer and to Chris Dyer, who is in charge of operations.

    The tyres were going through a graining phase at this time; Vettel’s pace had dropped off into the 1m 46s. But then the tyres came back in and the pace picked up again.

    Perhaps as they thought about whether to stop Alonso they were concerned that if the tyres should start to go off they would be vulnerable to Webber and the cars that had stopped and therefore must have reasoned that Vettel, Hamilton and Button would face the same threat, so they too would be behind the cars who had stopped.

    But they pulled the trigger too soon. Massa pitted on lap 13 and failed to contain Webber, he rejoined two seconds behind. So they called in Alonso to cover Webber and his world championship went up in smoke. It didn’t help that his in lap and out lap were 1.5 seconds slower than his rivals.

    Had they left him out, he would have stayed behind Button, who went on to do 39 laps on his soft tyres. Alonso would probably not have been able to do that many laps, but he would have been able to pit around the time Hamilton stopped on lap 22/23 and rejoin ahead of Rosberg (just), in a net fourth place once the hard tyre runners stopped. Instead, stuck behind Petrov for 39 laps he lost time and track positions.

    Sebastian Vettel is World Champion after dominant win in Abu Dhabi

    Sebastian Vettel became the youngest ever F1 World Champion today when he won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.

    It was a vindication of Red Bull’s decision not to make Vettel hand the win to Webber in Brazil, as it set Vettel up with the chance to do this. And he needed a slice or two or luck, as Hamilton came out behind the Renault of Robert Kubica who prevented him from having a go at Vettel.

    He was also lucky on the day that Ferrari made a terrible tactical error, which crippled Fernando Alonso’s race. They were so focussed on covering the early stop for Mark Webber and reacted to that, bringing Alonso in early, rather than seeing the risk posed by drivers who had pitted under a safety car on lap one. That error cost Alonso the world title today.

    At the start Button jumped Alonso for third place. Webber didn’t really try to attack while further back Schumacher got caught out by his team mate in Turn 5 and went into a spin. He was smashed by Tonio Liuzzi, who had nowhere to go. The nose of Liuzzi’s car narrowly missed Schumacher’s head.

    This brought out a safety car, under which Rosberg pitted, as did Petrov, Di Grassi and the two Hispania cars.

    It was a messy end to a patchy comeback season for the seven times champion.

    The race restarted on lap six. Hamilton had to go off track to avoid Vettel as he braked to build a gap to the safety car for the restart.

    Webber’s tyres started to go off and he pitted on lap 12. But he came out behind Alguersuari in the Toro Rosso and when Alonso pitted on lap 15, he was able to rejoin just ahead of Webber. It seemed ironic that a Red Bull owned Toro Rosso car would be the one to cost Webber the chance to jump Alonso.

    Webber pushed Alonso hard, the pair closed up on Petrov. Ferrari told Alonso it was “critical” that he pass Petrov. Meanwhile Alonso had other problems because also ahead of him was Nico Rosberg, who had pitted under the safety car and thus would not be stopping again. This put him on course to be fifth in the race and thus lose the title.

    Hamilton pitted on lap 23 and that forced Vettel to react. He pitted a lap later and was lucky that Kobayashi made a mistake as it meant Vettel could get ahead of both Kobayashi and Kubica. The Pole made a sublime pass on the Japanese a lap later. Neither of them had pitted at this stage.

    Hamilton passed Kobayashi on lap 27, but couldn’t pass Kubica. Meanwhile Button led on lap 31, having not pitted yet. We have seen him several times this season getting much longer life out of soft tyres than his rivals. Hamilton was on the radio asking for permission to pit for new tyres as his left front was giving him problems.

    Button stayed out and Vettel closed him down. Button pitted on lap 40, dropping back into third place.

    Kubica pitted on lap 47 and rejoined ahead of Petrov and Alonso, compounding the misery of Ferrari. The Renaults certainly did a job for Red Bull, their customer for engines, today. But it was all fair.

    So Alonso started third and finished seventh, Webber started fifth and finished eighth.

    Vettel emulated Kimi Raikkonen’s 2007 feat of winning the title in the last round having been third at the start of the race.

    “We have to enjoy this moment. It is our moment,” said Vettel. “I was thinking of Kimi’s situation today. It was similar, but we were in a stronger position. One big advantage with Kimi is that he does his own thing and that was my target all weekend long. Who would have thought that a Ferrari starting third with good pace would finish seventh? That’s how it goes some times. I’m just happy to add my name to the list with Schumacher and Senna.

    “The car this year was phenomenal, it was a masterpiece. I had the clear target going into the season to win the championship, I was very focussed, maybe I got a bit tense mid season. But to come back after what happened in Spa and all the bad press I got, that’s when you realise who supports you. I realised that sometimes things don’t go your way but there is justice and today it went my way.”

    @RedBull_ar
    Excellent Pics.

    @mani1
    I think we both should agree to disagree as it was impossible to come to a conclusion in the past debate and it still is impossible to find a suitable conclusion this time too.

    So Agree to Disagree.

    @All
    So, what is the decision for the GTG.

    @m_waqas
    Ferrari were trying to cover the wrong person and ended up loosing everything by using both their drivers, I am guessing Luca certainly have broken another LCD after the race and would be thinking why the hell my idea of 3rd car was rejected if I have a 3rd driver I could cover the other guy too.

    In love with Ferrari

    Waking up was hard after yesterday’s disappointment, I can’t deny it. It hurts to come so close to the goal and see it slip away like that, but that’s the way sport goes and we have to accept it. The closing chapter of the season must not erase all the positive things that we’ve done this year. And – I repeat – for me it’s been a top year. There have been wonderful moments, such as the Monza podium, that will stay in my memory and the bitter end will never be able to cancel them out.

    Now it’s pointless to try and work out who got things wrong: a world championship that slips away by four points after 19 races can be lost on so many occasions, not just at the end. We are a team: we win and we lose all together. I’m happy to be at Ferrari – to feel, together with all the men and women who work here the pride of being a part of this family and this extraordinary history. We are a great group and we will show that – especially in this hardest of moments where this bitter taste will be felt inside every one of us. I know that at Maranello everyone will be working hard on the new car to try to be even more competitive at the start of next year. I know that here at Yas Marina the mechanics are again on track preparing for a week of testing. I can’t wait to get back involved on Friday when I’ll return to Abu Dhabi to try out the new Pirelli tyres on Saturday. This is the spirit of our people: they want to react straightaway, to work even harder to chase victory. That has made me fall in love with Ferrari even more today than ever.

    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?
