Abu Dhabi Grand Prix - A special end to the season

The final race of the year also brings the curtain down on Kimi’s days in red


The final round of this very long season will come to an end in the picturesque setting of Yas Marina. However, 2018 Formula 1 track action won’t quite be over by then, because on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, the Abu Dhabi circuit will host the final test session of the year, given over to evaluation and development of next year’s Pirelli tyres. Scuderia Ferrari will be represented by what is in fact its 2019 line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc.

The Grand Prix in the Emirates will also be Kimi Raikkonen’s swansong wearing red, after eight seasons with the Prancing Horse team. The first stint, during which he won the world championship, went from 2007 to 2009, while the second started in 2014. As of today, Kimi is fifth in the list of most GP participations and with at least a further two years of racing ahead of him, the signs are that he could end up at number one!
The Scuderia’s trip to this race began when the advance party left on Saturday and those involved in the test session won’t return until Thursday 29th. Apart from the possibility of a couple of drops of rain over the next two days, the Abu Dhabi forecast has no surprises in store for when cars are on track, with temperatures in the 30s for practice and the race. As always here, the night time running adds that something extra to the weekend.
