8:18 p.m. 2013 champion Keen was looking for a chance to add the event win to end the season on a high note, but Vettel has been strong today.

Vettel was shallow-staged and his car rocked back when he brought the RPMs up, turning on the red light. Then Vettel launched, kicked the rods out and one rear tire bit, the other spun in his own oil. He saved it, didn't hit anything, but there is a lot of oil to clean up in the right lane.

Meanwhile, Keen took the green and just sat there, the nature of his problem not evident from here.

We'll be down for a bit while "the twins" clean up the oildown.

8:53 p.m. All better now...Balooshi's car has picked up the pace with every run down the track today, the team now comfortable with the new fuel injection system and he stepped up again on this run. He will have lane chocie against Keen in the final round.
