Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will be looking to continue his dominance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The British superstar is the most successful driver in this race having won five titles in the United Arab Emirates.
Hamilton won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2011, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019 and he will be eyeing a record-extending sixth title this weekend.
The accomplished driver missed the most recent race in the 2020 season which was the Sakhir Grand Prix after testing positive for coronavirus.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff says Hamilton looks set to compete in the last race of the season, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
"I think he is on the right track," said Wolff when speaking on Auto Sport. 
"If the doctors' prognosis is correct, he could manage to deliver a negative test on Thursday or Friday."
Mercedes, who have been crowned 2020 Formula One world constructors champions, are placed at the top of the standings with an unassailable lead of 540 points.
They are followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point, who have accumulated 282 points and 194 points heading into the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
