F1 Abu Dhabi race preview

After a Mercedes 1-2 in a tumultuous Brazil Grand Prix, the season comes to an end in Abu Dhabi.

Lewis Hamilton has won this race 5 times, but soon-to-be back-to-back champion Max Verstappen has won the last 2 editions.

Having won this race 3 times, 4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will bring his career to an end at the venue that secured him a maiden title over a decade ago.

F1 Abu Dhabi most wins

This venue hasn't suited Red Bull historically, but such has been Verstappen's dominance that he has been able to overcome it.

He will likely do so again here.

Win number 15, title number 2 and a developing legacy await.
