The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019 has finally concluded, with Lewis Hamilton winning the race. With this, the British driver took his tally to 413 point, ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas. Meanwhile, Max Verstappen won his battle for third place in the championship ahead of Charles Leclerc. Rounding out the top 5 is Sebastian Vettel, who has finished behind a teammate for the second time in his career.
Then, Carlos Sainz Jr nabbed 6th in the Formula One championship, a single point ahead of Pierre Gasly. Obviously, both drivers were boosted by unexpected podiums in Brazil, two weeks ago. Meanwhile, Alexander Albon was a further couple of points behind in 8th, and ahead of Daniel Ricciardo and Sergio Perez respectively.
After the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019, the rest of the 2019 championship order finished as follows, Lando Norris, Kimi Raikkonen, Daniil Kvyat, Nico Hulkenberg, Lance Stroll, Kevin Magnussen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Romain Grosjean, Robert Kubica and George Russell.
Meanwhile, in the constructor’s championship, Mercedes amassed a whopping 739 points. On the other hand, Scuderia Ferrari are 2nd on 504 and Red Bull on 417 points. McLaren are the only other team in the triple digits, on 145 points.
The rest of the pack was led by Renault on 91 points, closely followed by Toro Rosso, with 85 points. This is actually Toro Rosso’s last race in Formula One before they are rebranded as Alpha Tauri in 2020.
SportPesa Racing Point have 73 points, ahead of Alfa Romeo on 57 points and the woeful Haas F1 on a paltry 28. Finally, the usual suspect, Williams, prop up the back of the pack on a measly one point.
Now, all 10 teams will be looking forward to the post-season testing and the 2020 Formula One season. Unfortunately, the likes of Robert Kubica and Nico Hulkenberg will not be around for the coming season
