If ever there was one track that needed some of Bernie's sprinklers to come on at random and spice up the race, it's Abu Dhabi in seasons where the championship has already been decided. I expect a close qualifying followed by a relatively comfortable Mercedes win, could be either driver.

Bottas to start from the back of the grid due to new engine penalty.

Also Walter Koster strikes again xD

I like how the punks on the left were disrespectful and laughed, while Kevin remained a bit more focused and respectful. Walter Koster is a treasure!

And as if the length of the question was a coincidence. All part of Walter Koster's master plan.

Both Ferraris with a lot of understeer in Sector 3.
Bottas crashing into Grosjean while trying to overtake him - in free practice... Gets reprimanded by the stewards.

This looks like Hamilton's race to lose.

Poor race as expected... Not fitting to be the final race of the season imo. 

Congrats to Lewis and Mercedes. Totally dominated this weekend and were never in danger today. Lewis smashing the track record was the icing on the cake. A pole, a race win and fastest lap. Perfect.

Ferrari trying to emulate Mercedes' double pit stop and failing miserably haha. 

Good to see Max finishing second and taking the 3rd in the overall standings ahead of both Ferraris; thoroughly deserved. His short battle with Leclerc today once again showed glimpses of things to come in the future. 

Hülkenberg voted Driver of the Day is a nice gesture by the fans :D 

Lando and his engineering both crying on the radio :xxD 

 

So that's the end of the season folks... Looking forward to winter testing now.

The Highlight video should be short. Just the short Max vs. Charles thing, and Gio hitting Kubica. 

 

Nice to see some love for the Hulk in his final race (for now). I voted for him as well. Broke my heart to see him drop out of the points in the last lap.

To be fair there was plenty of action in the few last laps between the midfield cars... Perez and Norris; Sainz and Hulk. The TV director decided not to show any of it though and for some reason thought that the spectators would prefer watching the fireworks.

Yea, I was keeping an eye on Nico, and saw him dropping two places at once. :( The director's choices are often questionable. Worst thing is when they show the freakin' crowd instead of the on track action.

Yeah it's frustrating... I understand why'd you want to show the winner crossing the finish line but then there's plenty of time to go back to the still ongoing on-track battles. The crowd shots are the worst. Especially when they just show random people filming the track with their smartphones or sipping some drink and putting up their fingers in a V sign once they see they are being filmed xD

Leclerc keeps podium while Ferrari get a 50000€ fine for a fuel breach o.O Given that there were almost 5 kg of undeclared fuel it's obvious that it's not a small mistake by the team. The question is, why would they do that? Normally more fuel = more weight so there has to be some way they benefited from it. Certainly adds credibility to RB and Mercedes’ suspicions about circumventing the fuel flow sensor.
