Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018 race report

McLaren

Bottas, who has not won this year, was.044 seconds quicker in his Mercedes than Red Bull driver Max Verstappen on the Yas Marina circuit. Kiwi driver Brendon Hartley finished one place behind Alonso in 12th.

"I thought it would be tight but I really wanted to start on that tyre so that why I was able and happy to take that risk". Only Hamilton has outscored Verstappen in the second half of the campaign. He rejoined Renault and stuck around for two more years.

F1 driver Nico Hulkenberg's Renault vehicle spectacularly burst into flames and flipped over following a collision with French driver Romain Grosjean on the first lap of Sunday's Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi. In the meantime, Alonso's interest in F1 waned and he thought about exploring other racing series. "Abu Dhabi itself is a fantastic location for Formula One with a great party atmosphere in and around the paddock to end a long season", commented Chief Technical Officer Paddy Lowe.

He could be heard saying over the team radio saying: "I'm hanging here like a cow".

It's hard not to feel sorry for him, joining McLaren at the worst spell of its history alongside one of the toughest competitors in the history of the sport.

"I'm honoured to enter this competition which my father always loved and in which he set the bar very high together with Sebastian", Mick said.

Renault's Nico Hulkenberg emerged unhurt from a frightening-looking accident in which he was pitched into a roll and landed upside down in a first-lap clash with Romain Grosjean's Haas.

Virgil van Dijk consoles referee Ovidiu Hategan after Netherlands match
Hategan was understandably very emotional, but Van Dijk did what he could to comfort the recently bereaved ref. Germany had taken a two-goal lead, before Quincy Promes and van Dijk struck back in the last ten minutes.

"The last open-wheel vehicle I drove was a buggy back in the mid-90s.so it's been a long time since I've seen the front tyres of my race auto - intentionally saw the front tyres of my race auto", he added with a smile. He nearly won a third but was bumped off track by back-marker Esteban Ocon while leading the Brazilian GP two weeks ago, dropping to second place while Hamilton went on to win.

"I had to get past".

Ferrari have also not won a drivers' title since Raikkonen's.

Toro Rosso driver Pierre Gasly, Sauber's Marcus Ericsson and Ocon all retired late in the race.

The livery features a red, blue and yellow stripe running across the engine cover and ending at the rear wheel.

They had hoped for a change of fortune when Renault joined the fray but it wasn't to be.
