The F1 season draws to a close at Abu Dhabi with the 21st and final race of the season and - if you believe the constant theories and rumours - the last of Hartley's F1 career. "The time has come for me to move on, but I'm looking forward to ending the season - and my F1 career - on a positive note".

Compatriot Kimi Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion, retired seven laps into his final race with Ferrari as his auto cruised to a halt on the pit straight, triggering a virtual safety vehicle and Hamilton's early stop. He's won two of course with Renault, but none with McLaren or Ferrari.

Veteran Spanish driver Fernando Alonso placed 11th with McLaren in his last F1 race with the team.

He returned to the track in fifth, temporarily racing with Verstappen, but when those ahead came in for tyres, Daniel Ricciardo the last of those pitting on lap 33, Hamilton re-took the lead, crossing the line 2.5 seconds clear of Vettel.

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. The hyper-soft is regarded as being two steps softer than the 2017 ultra-soft, meaning that the 1 minute 36.231 seconds track record - set by Valtteri Bottas in qualifying a year ago - should be lowered further.

"Abu Dhabi will certainly be very emotional race for me, as it will be the end of a long and happy 17 years in Formula 1", said Alonso in his team's race preview.

Hulkenberg's vehicle landed upside down against the barriers after attempting to make a move on Romain Grosjean.

But once the fire was extinguished and the auto righted, he was able to climb out unaided.

"I have had a strong end to the season, performing well in the last few races, even when the auto wasn't quick enough to score big points", he said.

"I already have a taste for a lot more, how do you not want to continue to enjoy this?", added the 83-times race victor who has a contract with Hendrick through 2020.

Race marshalls rushed to the scene of the accident before extinguishing the flames and helping the driver from his vehicle. Ricciardo was next, Bottas third, and Hamilton fourth about one second behind. A day-to-night race, the already smooth track surface is complimented by cooler track temperatures.

"I doubt I would ever get a shot at a Formula One auto but there are plenty of other cool cars to drive".
