What shall you expect from the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix?

With the absolute chaos coming out of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, the two front runners for the title are standing side by side in the points tally. Verstappen found himself two red flags, penalties, and plenty of track limits exceeding but still managed two get the second position while Hamilton secured the top position.

Now, everything depends on the final GP which will take place at the Yas Marina Circuit located on the $40 billion Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. It will be the winner takes all race for both Verstappen and Hamilton. The 5.281 Kilometre track will decide who will hold the cup this time.

This Herman Tilke-designed track features a 1.2 KM straight that Mercedes will surely like but it also has enough slow corners for Redbull to ‘brake’ late and take the lead. A lot of alterations have been made to the track this time to provide more opportunities to every racer.
