The Formula One season is in the final corner with Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which is set to take place on Sunday, as it is the last race of the highly-entertaining season. Irrespective of how the drivers might have performed throughout the season, they will be more then determined to finish off the season on a high note.
Lewis Hamilton, who already won the F1 title, will have his eyes on winning the final Grand Prix, while other drivers such as his team mate, Nico Rosberg, will be eager to pip him on Sunday. Apart from these two Mercedes drivers, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel will have a point to prove in the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi.
Hamilton is the favourite to clinch the Abu Dhabi GP as well for he has shown astonishing form throughout the season. The champion driver, who has won 10 races this season, will be gunning for his 11th one in Abu Dhabi to round off what has been an incredible year.
"Obviously all different experiences but it has been the best year of my career and I'm in a very fortunate position, a lot of great work done by my team," said Hamilton.
"Probably one of the best races for me was Austin obviously, the pinnacle of the year for me. Yeah, and excited to be here in Abu Dhabi, with the 44th UAE national day and I'm here to try to win that 44th race, which I still haven't done, so it's cool how it all kind of ties in."
However, one of the major disappointments of the season has been Fernando Alonso's performance for McLaren-Honda, who are currently in second last position of the constructors championship. Alonso, who is expected to give his best in Abu Dhabi, is hoping to come up with a better performance next season.
"I think we worked really all season, being united in some difficult moments and always moving forward, so I think for 2016 the main goal for the team is to come back to where we belong, we think, and being competitive, fighting for the top positions," said Alonso.
Other teams such as Force India, who have been one of the best teams in the circuit, are expected to once again score some crucial points in the Abu Dhabi grand prix. Their drivers -- Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg -- have played an important role in securing the best ever fifth place finish in the constructors championship as well.
Irrespective of what position the respective drivers finish on Sunday, the fans in Abu Dhabi want to witness some high quality driving by these F1 drivers.
