Red Bull took the constructors' crown for the fourth year in a row, becoming only the third team to perform that feat after Ferrari and McLaren.

ABU DHABI

Vettel (2009 and 2010), Hamilton (2011) and Raikkonen (2012) are the only drivers to have won in Abu Dhabi. They are also the only ones to have started on pole position.

Only one of the four Abu Dhabi GPs so far was won from pole position. The driver on pole has failed to finish in three of the four races.

Vettel won his 2010 title in Abu Dhabi, becoming the youngest Formula One champion at 23.

Raikkonen's victory from fourth place on the grid last year was the first time the winner had started off the front row.

MILESTONE

Vettel can equal Schumacher's 2004 run of seven wins in a row this weekend, the best run of success of the modern era. The record of nine was set by Italian Alberto Ascari in 1952-53.

Ferrari can set a record for most consecutive points finishes, dating back to the 2010 German Grand Prix. They equalled McLaren's run of 64 in a row in India last weekend.

    West Brom's Berahino given time off to consider future

    West Bromwich Albion's England under-21 striker Saido Berahino will be given time off until next Monday to consider his position after suggesting he would not play for the club again, sources close to the player said on Wednesday. Berahino was furious after negotiations on a proposed move to Tottenham Hotspur broke down on the final day of the transfer window, with Albion chairman Jeremy Peace blaming Spurs for undervaluing and unsettling the player with four different bids. "I can officially say I will never play (for) Jeremy Peace," Berahino tweeted on Tuesday. More »
