***THE TITLE FIGHT***
It is very simple and unquestionable that whoever finish ahead of the other in Abu Dhabi will claim the 2021 drivers championship.
Current driver's standing (top driver)
***LET MEET THE DRIVERS***
Max verstappen has been both quick and clever in recent race. He should have been on pole in Saudi Arabia, if not for a crash on the last corner in qualifying, haven't been three tenths up during the final sector.
Verstappen won the last year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, taking pole by .025second from Valtteri Bottas and leading every lap, showing that the current Red Bull isn't ill-suited to the track.
Lawis Hamilton will be feeling confident as his Mercedes has looked like the fastest car on the grid for several races, ever since they took repeated engine penalties to ensure they had extra power units in the pool.
Hamilton has won at Abu Dhabi more than other drivers, with five triumph, through the last time the title race went down to the wire in the wire in the Middle East in 2016, he couldn't seal the crown over teammate Nico Rosberg. Can Max do the same on Sunday only time will tell.
*** THE TRACK ***
They is no need to worry about the race been procession has we have seen in recent years, because the track has been altered to help overtaking. The sequence of 90-degree bend after the second back straight has been turned into a single banked turn, which the cars are expected to take at 240km/h, while the chicane heading into the first back straight has been removed. Also with the opening up of several corners in the street circuit-like final sector, it's hoped the track will be both faster and more exciting.
Max Vesterppen has the natural advantage of leading in the standings. If they both crash since Max is leading in the standing he win the championship. If both driver tie on point, Vesterppen will be crowned world champion, because he won one more race (nine to eight), they cannot tie on point with Hamilton also winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
*** CONSTRUCTIONS TITLE ***
Mercedes already had a handy lead in its bid to win an eight consecutive constructions crown and when Sergio Perez crashed out in Saudi Arabia just made it easy for Mercedes going into the last race. On point Mercedes is ahead with 587.5 point, and the nearest rival Red Bull is 559.5 point. Realistically red bull need a 1-2 finish in Abu Dhabi while one of Hamilton or Bottas will have to crush out of the race to win the contructions title.
Lastly, Hamilton is chasing a record eight world title that would surely see him stand alone as the greatest driver in formula one history. If Hamilton beat the Dutch to the title, he will be the only driver with most win titles, more race wins and most pole position. We just have to wait till Sunday to find out.
