IN THE GREEN! Smooth as ever and next split time is green too! It could be a repeat in history today...
On the home stretch and it's a WIN for Paul Bonhomme! 57.787 in one of the most tense finals we've seen!
It's Bonhomme, Hall and McLeod on the podium in Abu Dhabi for 2015!
Matt Hall is edged out into second place but it's a great start to the season for the Australian!
Pete McLeod:It's been a challenging race for us getting the plane going... to come out with a podium finish is great... two days ago we didn't think it was possible.
Podium: Bonhomme 1st, Hall 2nd, McLeod 3rd
Matt Hall:Happy to be on the podium but to be that close is frustrating. To miss 0.8s in the end is about a metre off the plane length. We were always hanging about half a second off the pace last year. This year it's about flying smoothly and letting the winglets do their job
Paul Bonhomme:I think the other teams are slow coming out of the blocks when the season starts
Time to celebrate for McLeod, Hall and Bonhomme here in Abu Dhabi! What a day of action and flying on the edge until the very last Finish Gate!
Congratulations to the podium winners in Abu Dhabi
