Valtteri Bottas in the Mercedes lead from start to finish in the F1 finale in Abu Dhabi, placating his disappointment of his second-place finish in the previous round in Brazil. His teammate Lewis Hamilton pursued him for most of the race, but couldn’t make the pass on a track that Hamilton complains is very hard to pass at. The two Ferraris of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkenen were next across the line, but were quite some ways behind the Mercedes. Max Verstappen was fifth, and as usual was quite aggressive in getting up to Raikkonen, but like Hamilton couldn’t make the pass. Sergio Perez finished seventh, 7s ahead of his Force India teammate, Esteban Ocon. Daniel Ricciardo finished last (20th) after his power steering failed on lap 21 (of 55).
