The 17th stage will officially take place at the Yas Marina race track, in Abu Dhabi. This race saw many changes in the qualifications of the drivers.
“The King” driver- Hamilton returned
The season ended with the 17th track at the Yas Marina track where Hamilton had won the previous season. Champion positions individually and teammates have been determined previously. In this return, it is theoretically just a competition for the remaining positions of the driver behind the champion Hamilton.
With a poor handling in the Sakhir (Bahrain) race last weekend in the starting lap, Verstappen kicked himself out of the race and one day the technical team of Mercedes working distracted, Bottas only finished eighth. The gap between Bottas (Mercedes) who ranked second and Verstappen (Red Bull) was widened by 16 points.
Theoretically, Verstappen still has a chance to compete for second place in the end if he does well in the last race in Abu Dhabi, and Bottas still performs as poor as the last race.
At Sakhir last weekend, when Hamilton could not to play due to a Covid. Hamilton had to undergo mandatory isolation. Therefore, the young Mercedes driver – Russell had the opportunity to compete in the champions’ car. The young driver did everything very well and he had a perfect performance.
Back in Abu Dhabi, just in time for Hamilton to return to action, which means Russell will return to his current main team, Williams. Young diver’s adventures just a little more will probably make people remember more.
Many farewell of drivers after the Abu Dhabi GP
This weekend’s race in Abu Dhabi will be Vettel’s final showdown for Ferrari. Next season he will be Aston Martin’s man. Vettel played a total of six seasons for Ferrari and won 14 victories for the Italian team.
Yas Marina is a racing track that celebrates four times the world champion when he had his first world championship in the last race of the 2010 season. The season that German drivers must compete fiercely for Alonso was then playing for Ferrari, and it is not until the last race in Abu Dhabi that the championship can be determined.
As has been expected in previous races, this season have been a rather successful one for Mexican driver Sergio Pere. Perez won his first F1 career win.
With the last victory, Perez secured 4th place on the rankings and probably will belong to him after the Yas Marina Circuit race ends. Perez’s current distance and the 5th ranked racer Ricciardo is 13 points.
Theoretically, Ricciardo still has a chance to turn things around. In fact, the Australian driver doesn’t have much chance of getting a high score in Abu Dhabi. It is a bit of regret for Perez to this day he has yet to receive an offer for a new seat in the 2021 season.
Yas Marina is also Raikkonen’s farewell place in Ferrari to become Sauber’s in the 2019 season. More information for those who love Robert Kubika racer, he will be the official driver with Russell right Team Williams’ driving duo in the 2021 season.
Yas Marina is a new and modern track. Since taking part in the F1 races Hamilton had leaded with 5 wins. His rank followed by Vettel with 3 times, and Raikkonen has A pretty impressive win in the 2012 season.
