Default F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix......Spoiler Alerts

Lewis on Pole for the last race of the 2019 season.

Bottas at the back of the grid taking his penalty, will be interesting to see how well he makes it up the order as the Mercedes are looking very competitive.

Looks like the last time we will see Nico Hulkenberg and Robert Kubica in an F1 car.

Roll on next March when the circus starts all over again

Yep, always seems like a long winter without F1 to make Sundays exciting.

Must remember to look up the start times for the race as I keep forgetting Is Abu Dhabi a night race?

Potential problem for Leclerc. Car inspection pre qualifying revealed a "significant difference" between the declared amount of fuel in the car and what was actually in it.

Keep an open mind on this, as it could simply be a case of human input error. eg 25.0 litres against 250 The fact that they let them race, suggests that it is an explainable error, that will not affect the outcome. This is ignoring the ferrari influence, both with the FIA and the circuit, and it being the last race with no major affect on the outcome of the championship.

Hope Ferrari up their game over the winter and bring a more competitive package to the track next year.

Leclerc keeps third place but Ferrari have been fined 50,000 Euros.
