It was cool and windy without too much sunshine but for some reason the photos were easier to take today. The rain was in the air but at the end only a little drizzle arrived before the end of qualifying. Here is selection of images I took today at the track:

Top three in Abu Dhabi qualifying
The FIA has released the Abu Dhabi GP post qualifying weights. Lewis Hamilton is lighter than the 2 Red Bull cars behind him on the grid but will probably stop on the same lap as Mark Webber and perhaps only a lap earlier than Vettel. The lightest car on the grid is Robert Kubica. The heaviest among the top ten is Nico Rosberg but he still only has about 2 laps worth of fuel more than Hamilton.
There are some very heavy cars at the back of the grid, especially Kazuki Nakajima and both Renaults.

Post qualifying weight released by FIA reveal that pole setter Rubens Barrichello will start the Brazilian GP with the lightest fuel load, about 3 laps lighter than Webber and Sutil behind him. The heaviest among top ten is Kazuki Nakajima (P9). Sebastian Vettel shares with Giancarlo Fisichella the honours of having the heaviest car on the grid. The bad news for him are those rather light KERS powered McLarens behind him.
