It looking tight on the Drivers standings as potential of 3 different drivers to can take the champion positon.

Few facts about the Dubai Autodrome:
- Opened in October 2004
- Length of the track is 5.39km(Grand Prix Course)
-Hosts the first major road racing event of the year. The Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai

The track is very technical as there is a lot to work against on the track as there are a lot of elevation changes and also the camber angle of the track varies a lot on every single corner making a setup the biggest nightmare for a beginner. This track will show us which drivers can setup cars for cambered tracks and how far their technical understanding can reach.
The Dubai Autodrome race is now getting to a point were it tells us the truth of the season and it all or nothing for every single driver on the grid although it still may not be over yet as a single or double DNF in this race can cause dramatic changed in the drivers championship.
