Hampered by damage picked up in an opening-lap collision with his team-mate and more bodywork flew off Kubica's car as Antonio Giovinazzi made an overtake, leaving the pole to sign off from F1 racing last of the finishers.
After the ecstasy of Interlagos came pain at Yas Marina as Gasly's race was wrecked by a lap-one shunt, which cost him a front wing and, ultimately, sixth place in the championship.
Russell might get a slap on the wrist for damaging his team-mate's car early in the piece, but was left as 2019's sole scoreless driver as the kind of chaos he would have needed to make the top 10 failed to materialise.
Antonio Giovinazzi (Qual: 17th - Race: 16th) 5/10
Gave Kubica a fair old clobber as he made his way past the Williams, and both were perhaps lucky not to suffer more significant damage. The Italian could not bow out with points, but has improved well as 2019 has gone on.
Effectively had his weekend spoiled by Valtteri Bottas in the pair's Friday practice collision. It damaged the new floor that Grosjean had taken at Abu Dhabi, and had shown seriously impressive pace with in practice. With the old configuration in place, it was more of the same from a dismal 2019 for Haas.
Magnussen picked up a clutch of positions at the start to run in the top 10, but that has been a position that Haas have found increasingly difficult to maintain this season, and so it proved once again here.
Kimi Raikkonen (Qual: 18th - Race: 13th) 5/10
The Iceman showed decent race pace and made up a decent number of spots, but he started from too far down the grid to bow out for 2019 with points.
Nico Hulkenberg (Qual: 10th - Race: 12th) 6/10
Hulkenberg just fell short of points in his last F1 race, for some time at least, losing positions to Carlos Sainz and team-mate Daniel Ricciardo on the final lap. Still, he was awarded Driver of the Day, as fans clubbed together to salute the departing German.
Daniel Ricciardo (Qual: 8th - Race: 11th) 6/10
Followed Carlos Sainz's lead in taking a later stop to charge back through the field on fresher tyres and but it did not quite pay off.
