F1 GP Abu Dhabi preview

28.11.2019

Even though Lewis Hamilton claimed another Formula 1 Championship title, there’s still plenty of interesting ways to make some money on the season finale of the 2019 Formula 1. Can Hamilton add another victory to his record, or will one of his competitors give him a run for his money while he’s already coasting on a great season? Let’s find out all about this exciting race, so we can make the smartest bets this weekend!

The Yas Marina circuit

The 2019 season finale is held for the fifth consecutive time at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. Racers and spectators alike will revel in the twilight setting, as the race starts when it’s still light out, and ends on a floodlit circuit as the night falls on the United Arab Emirates. Racing circumstances aside, the Yas Marina circuit is a hard one to tackle. Drivers face 55 laps of 5.554 kilometers filled with treacherous hairpins and chicanes, and plenty of long straight to pick up the necessary speed to beat competitors.

Since its inclusion in the F1 circuit in 2009, this GP has been dominated by two of the sport’s greats of recent history: Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, while Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen may have a surprise up their sleeves… We can expect a close and highly competitive race on this long and technically demanding circuit. Who will come out on top in this Formula 1 season finale? We’ll have our answers on Sunday, December 1!

Form guide

Lewis Hamiton won his sixth championship after finishing second in the United States GP back on November 3. The Brit is probably the best in the game at the moment, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. He had 3 pole positions, 5 fastest laps, and 10 first place finishes so far this season.

His closest rival, German Sebastian Vettel, holds 3 victories at Yas Marina, and totalled 2 pole positions, 2 fastest lap records, but only 1 first place victory this year. If the rivalry holds true, then this last GP of the season should become a battle between two of the sport’s greatest drivers.

Following the leading men, we have Valtteri Bottas, who had a highly successful season by taking pole position 5 times, recording 3 fastest laps, and crossing the finish line first 4 times. The Finn, a teammate of Hamilton at Mercedes, was instrumental in winning another title for the German constructor.

Another great racer very much itching to take the reins and claim his place in F1 history for good, is young Dutchman Max Verstappen. The Red Bull racer started from pole position twice this season, drove the fastest laps in Austria and Hungary, and finished first in the Brazil GP last race day.
