2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (Yas Marina, Round 19, November 14th)
Sebastian Vettel drove the absolutely perfect race to win at the Yas Marina circuit and become the youngest ever Formula 1 World Champion, but Ferrari did their best to make it easy for the 23-year-old. Indeed, one could argue that Fernando Alonso’s battle was lost before the erroneous pitstop.

2010 Brazilian Grand Prix (Interlagos, Round 18, November 6th)
Free Practice 3 A wet and overcast morning greeted Saturday practice at Interlagos, with some overnight rain leaving the circuit sodden.

2010 Korean Grand Prix (Yeongam, Round 17, October 22nd)
It was very close, but the Korean International Circuit was just about ready as cars hit the track for first practice on Friday morning.
