For Sebastian Vettel, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be the last race of his career. Red Bull Racing, the team with which he has become champion no less than four times, has given a special gift to the German to thank him for his impressive career in the premier class.

During the weekend in Abu Dhabi, several moments marked Vettel's farewell. All 20 drivers went together to a restaurant for a farewell dinner for Vettel. The father of the four-time world champion was also present in Abu Dhabi and gave the first racing suit and helmet as a gift to his son.

Special gift

A special lap of honour was held at the Yas Marina Circuit on Saturday after qualifying to thank Vettel for his contribution to the sport. Not only was the German put in the limelight by his current team Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing also surprised Vettel with a very special gift. The 35-year-old has won the world championship four times with Red Bull and in honour of that, Christian Horner has thanked him by donating a wing endplate from one of his winning cars.
