The final race of the Formula 1 season takes place on Friday, November 20 in Abu Dhabi at the culmination of a packed weekend of motor sport events.

The winner of the main prize has already been decided, with Max Verstappen securing victory some three races ago, but there will still be plenty to fight for at Yas Marina Circuit.

All eyes will be on the Dutch champion’s Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez as he battles for the season’s runner-up slot with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.

The Mercedes team also have a point to make after ending their winless streak at the last grand prix, with George Russell taking his maiden F1 victory in Sao Paolo in a 1-2 ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton.
