Thanks, Nat. Good morning. Mark Webber's Formula One world title aspirations were crushed overnight by a battling an eighth-place finish at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Webber's Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel led from start to finish. The 23-year-old German becoming the youngest world champion in F1 history. With Mark Webber locked in a 4-way dogfight for his maiden world title, the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix promised action aplenty. The Aussie took a huge risk by pitting early and it backfired. COMMENTATOR: Mark Webber's in trouble. Championship leader Fernando Alonso also decided to pit to cover Webber but the cat-and-mouse game did the Spaniard no favours.

Oh! He's almost gone into the wall. His title chances fading fast, Alonso started feeling the strain. He has gone off the track. A little mistake.

Webber was also struggling to make an impact as Vettel tightened his grip on the title.

He currently is the world champion

leader for the first time this

season and he is heading for title glory. As the backmarkers waged a losing battle,

the 23-year-old German became the youngest champion in F1 history. And now, Sebastian Vettel wins in Abu Dhabi to be drivers' champion for 2010! Unbelievable! Thank you, I love you! Alonso finished in seventh, Webber eighth. The Aussie left to lament his poor qualifying session.

Just so hard to stay close to the

guys in front, um, we know that

anyway, so, um, it is why the car

likes being off the front. Webber will be back for another crack next year and there's no doubt his team-mate will be the man they all have to beat. Nick Markham, Seven News. Ford's Mark Winterbottom has emerged as a contender for the V8 Supercar championship following his victory in race 22 of the season at Symmons Plains. Craig Lowndes' title aspirations took a huge hit when his gearbox failed on lap four. Jamie Whincup completed a horror day for Team Vodafone when a fuelling error relegated the reigning champion to 15th.

We didn't put enough petrol in, it's

just a rookie thing which we are not

very proud of. It is one of our lowest days. James Courtney was penalised for nudging Lee Holdsworth but his 12th place finish extended his lead over Whincup to 50 points. Winterbottom's now in the third championship, 200 points behind Courtney. Australian selectors will name an extended squad today for the opening Ashes Test at the Gabba next week. Phil Hughes is likely to earn selection as cover for injured opener Simon Katich. Fellow young-gun Usman Khawaja is expected to get the nod ahead of Callum Ferguson. who was unable to hit a big score in South Australia's Tour match against England.

You could see that England really

did target him and take it to him,

with verbal stuff so they rate

Callum highly so I think he has come

away a better player because of the opportunity. Leg-spinning all-rounder Steven Smith is also set to make the squad. Queensland paceman Ryan Harris is out of contention after his knee injury flared. Robbie Fowler has almost single handedly dragged Perth Glory out of its A-league rut. The Englishman's hat-trick powered the Glory to a big win over Melbourne Victory while Brisbane edged out the Heart. Luck was on Fowler's side for his first goal after his penalty attempt was saved but the next two goals were all class as Perth finally snapped its 10-game winless run.

Glorious stuff from the Perth Glory

and they marquee man responds in the

best way! At AAMI Park, the Roar won an entertaining clash against the Heart, 2-1,

extending their unbeaten run to 10 matches. Arsenal has jumped into outright second on the Premier League ladder

with a 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park this morning. Tim Cahill set up a thrilling finish by finding the net in the 89th minute

but the home side was unable to find a late equaliser. In this morning's other clash, league leaders Chelsea crashed to a shock 3-0 loss at home to Sunderland. The Blues' lead at the top is now just two points. That's all for now. I'll be back with more sport a little later in 'Sunrise', Nat.
