The FIA has published the post-qualifying weights of the cars ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with Robert Kubica the lightest driver heading into the race.

The Pole goes into his final race with BMW Sauber weighing in at 654.4kg, putting him just lighter than Rubens Barrichello's Brawn GP.

Pole man Lewis Hamilton is the fourth lightest driver on the grid and will be pitting earlier than closest rivals Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber on race day. However, the difference between the cars doesn't explain the large gap between Hamilton and the rest in qualifying.

Renault has elected to run both Fernando Alonso and Romain Grosjean on heavy fuel loads, with the pair being easily the heaviest cars on the grid.

The full list is as follows (their actual starting position is in brackets at the end):

Robert Kubica BMW-Sauber 654.5kg (7th) Rubens Barrichello Brawn GP-Mercedes 655.0kg (4th) Jenson Button Brawn GP-Mercedes 657.0kg (5th) Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 658.5kg (1st) Mark Webber Red Bull Racing-Renault 660.0kg (3rd) Jarno Trulli Toyota 661.0kg (6th) S?bastien Buemi Scuderia Toro Rosso-Ferrari 661.5kg (10th) Sebastian Vettel Red Bull Racing-Renault 663.0kg (2nd) Nick Heidfeld BMW-Sauber 664.0kg (8th) Nico Rosberg Williams-Toyota 665.0kg (9th) Kimi Raikkonen Ferrari 692.0kg (11th) Giancarlo Fisichella Ferrari 692.5kg (20th) Kamui Kobayashi Toyota 694.3kg (12th) Vitantonio Liuzzi Force India-Ferrari 695.0kg (17th) Adrian Sutil Force India-Ferrari 696.0kg (18th) Jaime Alguersuari Scuderia Toro Rosso-Ferrari 696.5kg (15th) Heikki Kovalainen McLaren-Mercedes 697.0kg (13th) Fernando Alonso Renault 708.3kg (16th) Romain Grosjean Renault 710.8kg (19th)
