episode 14: Formula 1 Grid Talk Episode 14: 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Review

Welcome to Episode 14 of Formula 1 Grid Talk, hosted by George Howson! In this episode, George and the team will be reviewing the 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

In this episode the team discuss:

  • Lewis Hamilton wins the Abu Dhabi GP in fittingly fine style as he chases Schumacher's records.
  • Max Verstappen was a ways off but Lewis' closest challengers as Red Bull look forward to 2020.
  • Charles Leclerc and particularly Sebastian Vettel were well off the pace again, the four time champion looking particularly weak at Yas Marina.
  • Valtteri Bottas finishing fourth after starting at the back of the grid, a fine drive by the Finn.
  • Sergio Perez finished best of the rest in another brilliant drive as Carlos Sainz sealed best of the rest in the driver's standings.
  • Renault had another day to forget, a pointless race for Ricciardo and Hulkenberg but they confirm their 5th in the constructor's standings.
  • We list off the final driver's standings of 2019 and let you know our plans for the rest of the year ahead of the 2020 preseason.
