HOw are things looking for, though, going to qualify? It was pretty close between the three main teams at the end of the season and Red Bull – and Max Verstappen b & # 39; in particular – showed improved speed. It seems the same in & # 39; Abu Dhabi. Mercedes has won here every year since 2013, though, b & # 39; a fair amount of & # 39; 1-2 at that time. Can & # 39; is not as simple as that this year, though.
X Here & # 39; is Phil Duncan, f & # 39; Yas Marina, had to say about the final practice:
The World Championship Lewis Hamilton published the fastest time in final practice for the Grand Prix & # 39; Abu Dhabi.
The star & # 39; Mercedes, who is banning the end of his campaign won the title with 11 its year victory, finishing 0.288 seconds from Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen in the circuit Yas Marina, b & # 39; Sebastian Vettel in third place.
Max Verstappen finished fourth & # 39; fast, before Valtteri Botta, b & # 39; Daniel Ricciardo sixth in order.
Ricciardo taking part in the 100th session and the last race & # 39; Red Bull before his switch to Renault the next year, but there were too familiar feeling at the end of & # 39; hours after the Australian was forced to park his car.
Year & # 39; Ricciardo generated by mechanical issues – indeed suffered more withdrawals in & # 39; this season (eight) than Hamilton endured in the last five years – and the apparent leak & # 39; water contributed more bad luck it here.
Fernando Alonso, who omitted the sport after 17 season, finished 16 minutes for McLaren, while the driver Haas Romain Grosjean and Toro Rosso of & # 39; Pierre Gasly were involved in & # 39; nasty crash in -Dawran 17 minutes in the closing run.
The pair banged sidepods under braking for the right shop, with Gasly gesticulating on his French. The incident is being investigated by stewards.
We expect to hear x & # 39; is the result of & # 39; that investigation but appeared fault of & # 39; Grosjean.
I will be here for a few hours with accumulation, updates and live reactions that qualify for the Grand Prix & # 39; 2018 of & # 39; Abu Dhabi.
