Last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix saw Verstappen pip Hamilton to the win after a Safety Car rule was incorrectly applied. As a result he claimed his first championship and denied Hamilton an all-time record eighth.

Hamilton has one final chance on Sunday to keep alive his record of having won a race in each of his career seasons.

But Verstappen will start in pole position and will be in no mood to do Hamilton any favours. Will Verstappen help Sergio Perez? Last week in Brazil the Red Bulls descended into a team orders spat.

This is also the last race of Sebastian Vettel's esteemed career.
