Confirmed: The starting grid for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Thanks to his mechanics clocking in many hours, Pierre Gasly won't have to take a grid penalty at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix despite losing all power in his engine during his final hot lap in Q1 yesterday. The 22-year-old was the only driver in danger of a grid penalty, but he can legally use a different Honda engine without taking a penalty. No changes have been made on the grid by the FIA, meaning the starting grid in Abu Dhabi will look like this:

The starting grid at the Yas Marina Circuit

1. Lewis Hamilton (MER)  
  2. Valtteri Bottas (MER)
