LIVE: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix - Qualifying - Who will take the final pole of 2019?

It's the final qualifying session of the season! We've seen some dramatic ones in 2019, and here's hoping we'll see another one in Abu Dhabi today. It's been a weekend of mixed results so far, with Mercedes topping the first two practice sessions, but Red Bull fighting back in FP3!

FP1

Valtteri Bottas was quickest in FP1 in Abu Dhabi, in a session where Sebastian Vettel crashed into the barriers in the final stages. Daniel Ricciardo suffered an oil leak to his Renault, also, causing a mini explosion with flames spitting out the back of his black and yellow car.

FP2

FP2 saw the Finn again at the top, a few tenths ahead of his teammate to establish the Silver Arrows dominance with both Ferrari drivers showing a bit more than they did in FP1 by finishing third and fourth. Bottas though got himself into a bit of trouble colliding with Romain Grosjean, bringing out a lengthy red flag to clear the debris.

FP3

Max Verstappen went quickest this time, with the two Mercedes' of Lewis Hamilton and Bottas just behind him in an insanely close front three. The top trio were seperated by less than a tenth of a second.
