F1 Abu Dhabi GP 2019: Lewis Hamilton is the Winner
Lewis Hamilton rounded off his world-championship winning campaign in style with an 11th win of the year at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Hamilton led from start-to-finish in a commanding display as he secured the 84th win of his career and moved to within seven of Michael Schumacher’s all-time record.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen finished runner-up following a fine move on Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, who took the chequered flag in third. Verstappen’s drive to second ensured he finished the season as the best of the rest behind Mercedes duo Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
Bottas, who started last following his grid penalty for an engine change, took the flag in fourth. But the Finn could yet be promoted one place with Leclerc’s podium under threat following a fuel irregularity. The Monegasque has been summoned to report to the stewards.
Sebastian Vettel passed Red Bull’s Alex Albon for fifth with two laps remaining. Vettel’s race was thwarted by a slow pit stop.
