Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Max Verstappen claims second win of year at season finale

by A.P.

Max Verstappen ended a frustrating season for Red Bull on a high with victory in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Dutchman took his second win of the year ahead of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, who were unable to challenge in second and third.

An early safety car locked in the strategies of the leaders and led to a soporific race.

McLaren took third in the constructors’ championship as Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz took fifth and sixth.

The prize for overhauling Racing Point – who started the race 10 points ahead but for whom Lance Stroll could finish only 10th as team-mate Sergio Perez retired early on – is in the region of $10m (£7.5m) of prize money.
