Lewis Hamilton ends the 2019 F1 season with Abu Dhabi win
Lewis Hamilton ended the 2019 Formula One season with a final victory at the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019 on Sunday evening.
In a thrilling race that saw the Red Bull of Max Verstappen start beside him on the front row and Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas at the back of the grid, Hamilton breezed through the race to win the 11th edition of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the 2019 season.
The F1 2019 season finale saw Mercedes yet again finish on top going into the winter break – their sixth victory in 11 years at the Circuit.
Just before the race, two aircraft from Etihad Airways and Fursan Al Emarat performed a stunning UAE national colours fly past, followed by the UAE National Anthem.
At exactly 5:10pm it was time for the main event, the three-way F1 showdown between Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, and Lewis Hamilton.
The 55-lap Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ended with Lewis Hamilton winning at a Circuit he has won the big prize three times before.
