Lewis Hamilton will have been absolutely hoping that no more drivers would crash into the wall in the closing stages of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but the opposite happened. Nicholas Latifi hit the dirt and slid into the barrier as a result. The Mercedes driver was told the bad news by his engineer and he was not happy about it.

Over the team radio, the disappointment can be heard when 'Bono' tells Hamilton that there is a double yellow and that the safety car will go on track. The discussion continues as to whether a pit stop for fresh tyres is possible, but that turns out not to be the case. It is clear that Hamilton is fed up, because his eighth world title eludes him in the very last lap.
