Despite playing the role of Red Bull's No. 2 for a great deal of his tenure with the manufacturer, Mark Webber has, for the large part, handled his role in the team very well.
A fifth podium finish of the season was a great way for the Australian to show that he still holds great value as a part of the Red Bull setup, handling his race with aplomb.
Managing to come back from his 10th-place grid placement, Fernando Alonso showcased some extraordinary driving skills in Abu Dhabi, clawing his way to a fifth-place finish and bagging Ferrari 10 points.
Those points are sure to keep the Spaniard's head above water in the driver standings, and Alonso turned what began as a fairly grisly day into an occasion warranting small celebration.
What more can be said of the man who has torn up tracks worldwide for the past four years and continues to do so on a very consistent basis?
Some argue that Vettel's skill isn't tested to the fullest due to the fact that his car is superior to every other in the field, but the argument only lasts so long when you're dealing with a man who is clearly one of the sport's biggest talents.
