Formula 1 2012: Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher both fail to get points for Mercedes at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Well this just seems to be a common theme, Mercedes gets no points and has a poor race. Call it bad luck if you want but it is happening far too often. Nico Rosberg did not finish the race due to an accident, unfortunate. Michael Schumacher did ok but failed to get any points finishing in 11th place. Sebastian Vettel surprisingly managed to finish in 3rd place fighting his way onto the podium after a penalty during qualifying forced him to start the race at the back of the grid.
Kimi Raikonen won the race, his first victory of the year so congratulations to him. Fernando Alonso finished in second making it a tighter race towards the end for the championship between him an Vettel. With two races remaining the finish will be interesting. The next race is the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on the 18th this month.
