E s was a worthy end to the best among one Season that made him world champion for the sixth time. Lewis Hamilton celebrated his eleventh win of the season in Abu Dhabi, the 84th of his career. With a show of strength, the world champion reminded the Formula 1 community of who the best driver in the ring was and is.

He showed the young and wild ones once again that he is far from being ousted by them . After nine races without pole position and the victories of Valtteri Bottas in Austin and Max Verstappen in Interlagos, that may have been forgotten.

Pole position, fastest race lap, all laps in the lead and victory: It's like a hat trick in Football. The demonstration of total superiority. Hamilton's victory was not in danger for a second. Nobody circled his car so perfectly through the 21 corners, nobody kept the tires in such good condition as the exceptional driver from England. It can only, yes, it has to be rated 10. The best of the whole year was also the best of the finals.

Max Verstappen kept the Ferrari loose at bay. But he didn't have a chance against Hamilton.

Hülkenberg driver of the race

Everything faded behind Hamilton. A very good Grand Prix from Max Verstappen, whose Red Bull was not a winning car in Abu Dhabi. Charles Leclerc's great performance in an indisposed Ferrari. Valtteri Bottas, who overtook six cars on his way from the very back after a strong starting lap.

The heroic defense battle of Lando Norris on tires that were 46 laps old at the end. Sergio Perez with the best overtaking maneuver of the race. And Nico Hülkenberg's exclamation mark in the last one for the time beingGrand Prix, which unfortunately wasn't rewarded with a World Championship point but at least the title “Driver of the Race”.

Sebastian Vettel had a mixed Grand Prix. Like Leclerc, he was the victim of his team, which stumbled from breakdown to breakdown and mistake to mistake. With soft tires at the start and a 6.9 second pit stop, there was no flower pot to be won. I think Vettel would give himself the grade 7.
