On the occasion of the last round of the 2021 championship, Formula 1 goes to Abu Dhabi, for the grand finale of the season between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. Here is the TV program for practice and qualifying.
For the 13th time in its history, Formula 1 is going to the route from Yas Marina to Abu Dhabi. This last round of the season will determine which of Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen will become the 2021 world champion. As a reminder, the two pilots meet at equal points, at the dawn of a final that promises to be grandiose.
The fight between the two rivals escalated in intensity after the eventful Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia. Once again, the two men clashed after a disagreement on the track. The Dutchman was judged at fault for this action, but also comes out as the big loser of this end of the season, so far … In the last 3 races, Lewis Hamilton has emerged victorious 3 times. The Briton therefore arrives at the end of this season with full confidence, facing his rival who is starting to feel the pressure of the world title. The Mercedes driver also benefits from a certain experience to manage this delicate situation. Of the 11 attempts that have come his way, the Stevenage native has converted them 7 times.
This weekend will give pilots the opportunity to also discover a modified Yas Marina route. Turns 5 and 9 have been reviewed and changed to allow the cars to follow each other better and increase the possibilities of overtaking. Because it was quite complicated to overtake on the old circuit …
