Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021: Start time, TV, live stream for F1 title-deciding showdown
GPFans Staff

One of the most enthralling seasons in F1 history reaches a fitting conclusion this weekend when Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen bid for title glory.

The Mercedes and Red Bull drivers go into the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix tied on points, and knowing that bar one freak scenario, whoever finishes ahead of the other will be crowned champion

Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix proved to be a bitter battle between the pair, which has led to numerous calls for them to race clean on Sunday. Can they do so?

GPFans provides you with a breakdown of how to catch all the not-to-be-missed action from the Yas Marina Circuit.

GPFans' ABU DHABI GP PREDICTION

Hamilton is on a roll after winning three successive races for the first time this season to reel in Verstappen whose destiny was in hands after scoring back-to-back victories in the United States and Mexico.

The seven-time F1 champion has been resurgent since being thrown out of qualifying ahead of the race in Brazil, and has been supported by a fresher engine, both for that event and in Saudi Arabia.

Verstappen does have the benefit of winning at this circuit last year, ending a run of Mercedes triumphs but it is hard to see beyond the Briton in this form.

After Verstappen's stunning effort in qualifying to secure pole, however, and with the pair starting on opposing tyre compounds, anything could happen across the 58 laps today!
