Formula 1 World Championship contender, Sebastian Vettel, will start today’s 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from pole position after claiming the top spot in qualifying by three hundredths of a second from Lewis Hamilton.

Ferrari man, and current championship leader, Fernando Alonso, however, starts in third place – enough to lift the title in this, the final event of this gripping 2010 season.

Alonso’s closest rival for the title, Australian Mark Webber, begins in fifth after failing to put down a really fast time in Q3. Last year’s champ, Jenson Button starts from fourth spot.
