All drivers in the final race will be looking to end their season on a high note, but only one driver will have the pole position as a starting advantage. As BBC Sport reported on Saturday, it was the Finn, Valtteri Bottas, edging Lewis Hamilton to claim the pole for Sunday’s big race in Abu Dhabi. Bottas was just 0.172 seconds faster than his Mercedes teammate, while Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was third, as he was 0.546 seconds off the pace. Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull took fourth, with Kimi Raikkonen grabbing the fifth-place slot.
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who has already wrapped up his third Formula 1 championship in four years, praised Bottas for what he did to grab the pole position on the grid.
“What a lap. He had an incredible qualifying. Congratulations to him. It was the last qualifying of the year and I gave it everything.
“Ultimately winning the championship is the one. Now it is about trying to finish on a high. Having a one-two is great and that’s the goal. If we are able to finish minimum where we’re starting, it’s going to be a good result.”
The latest odds to win Sunday’s race feature the man who has already claimed this season’s championship. As Paddy Power sportsbook shows in their outright betting market, Lewis Hamilton leads all drivers with 10-11 odds.
