Quick ten with Paul Stoddart

1. What is your favourite part of the Albert Park circuit? Turn 3.

2. What is your favourite restaurant in Melbourne? Pier 3 Restaurant, Port Melbourne.

3. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be? Nelson Mandela.

4. What is the first thing you think of when you hear the words 'Australian Grand Prix'? My home GP, and without doubt the best GP on the calendar.

5. Who do you think is your biggest rival? I don’t really have any direct rivals, but the world recession is a pain!

One stop too many!

Mark drove one of his best races of the season but even a series of fastest laps wasn’t enough to get him onto the podium in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He came home in fourth place, nine seconds behind Jenson Button.

“I was happy with the way I drove but the race was frustrating,” says Mark. “You get what you deserve in racing but this was very tough. Had I had a clean race I could have challenged Jenson for the podium, but that wasn’t the case.”

Vettel runs out of luck. Webber runs out of time

Vettel runs out of luck… Webber runs out of time… Button runs out of energy… and Lewis runs out the winner A new name went into the Yas Marina record books when Lewis Hamilton won the 2011 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for McLaren Mercedes.

Only Sebastian Vettel had won on the previous two visits to the spectacular Middle East venue, but in a sensational start to the 55-lap race Vettel, whose Red Bull Renault started from pole position, spun off on the second corner with a deflating right rear tyre.
