Epic race of the season finale – in Abu Dhabi

Lewis Hamilton on pole position for Abu Dhabi title decider but who will win?

Nico who needs to finish in the top three this Sunday – to win the world championship, qualified second fastest, 0.303 seconds behind Hamilton.

Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo was third, but 0.834secs slower than Hamilton.

Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel were fourth and fifth, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen sixth.

Hamilton’s performance was impressive this season. He has taken 12 poles to Rosberg’s eight, despite not being able to compete in qualifying, in three races because of reliability problems.

“Wow, 61 poles. I am going to try to catch Ayrton. It has been a strange feeling coming here and realising it was going to be the last session, the last qualifying in such a great car – you never know when you are going to have a car like this again.

“We got the car in a great sweet spot and I want to thank everyone – I would not have the 61 poles if it was not for them. The perfect position for tomorrow.”

Rosberg said: “I had a good balance and was feeling quite pleased. I got a good lap in the end but it was not good enough. I gave it everything but it wasn’t possible to beat Lewis today. But I will give it everything tomorrow.” Said Lewis Hamilton.
