  1. Ah, the season is about to end. The same feeling ahead of every Abu Dhabi GP as the off-season period is knocking on the door, but still, a longer break from F1 racing, especially after a season as condense as this isn’t for the bad. Hopefully, the next off-season phase wouldn’t be as long as the last, though. First off, the Abu Dhabi GP: Maybe not the best track for racing on paper, but a decent-ish to drive. I also like the twilight setting.

    I am also looking forward to Abu Dhabi – more than normal. Whilst not always a great race I do enjoy the cars under the lights and there will still be some intrigue for this year’s race with the Mercedes fight for the win, and Racing Point trying to secure 3rd in the championship.

    Assuming that Russel is in the Mercedes again this weekend, I believe he has a very strong chance of the win, a podium at least. Abu Dhabi is usually a fairly straightforward race with few safety cars and he will have had more experience in the car.

    If Russel does score a podium this weekend he would be the 14th driver to do so this year: surpassing the total of the 2012 season. That is quite remarkable when you think about Mercedes’ pace advantage and Hamilton having won 11 races this year. When was the last time there were 14 or more podium finishers in a season? Also it’s looking very unlikely for Williams to score points this year which would be tragic, as I do believe they have scored in every season they have contested in.

  3. If Hamilton’s back it will be as unwatchable as it is every year. Terrible track, terrible race, worst season ending track we’ve ever had!
    Go into this race the same every year too. Titles settled only minor battles to decide down the order and leaving with hope someone can take the fight to Mercedes.
