F1 Photos Abu Dhabi GP 2022: Pictures from practice

Abu Dhabi GP 2022

On the last training Friday of the season in Abu Dhabi, the youngsters were allowed to play first. The juniors let it rip in their practice rounds. At the same time, Sebastian Vettel began his farewell tour. His father Norbert gave him a very special present. We have the pictures from the desert course.

The titles in the premier class have been awarded. The focus of the teams shifted at the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi. It's no longer necessarily about maximum points, but above all about good preparation for the coming season.

So the engineers had measuring devices attached to many cars in order to collect basic data for the development of the new cars. And to have a comparison when it comes to the first test rounds next year. McLaren and Ferrari even had the underbody rebuilt to practice in the direction of the 2023 regulations.

A look into the future was also offered on training Friday in terms of personnel. Many teams waited until the last possible opportunity with the junior assignment prescribed by the regulations. The regular drivers of eight teams had to take a break. The young talents really let it rip.

Sargeant spin in turn 1

Logan Sargeant in particular went into the practice session very motivated. The American, who has already secured the regular cockpit at Williams for 2023, was a little too fast in turn 1 and spun at high speed on the asphalt.

Luckily the car was intact, but the set of soft tires was ruined after the involuntary drift. After all, the junior still managed the required minimum distance of 100 kilometers in training, which earned him an additional super license point.

An emotional farewell tour began for Sebastian Vettel on Friday. The Heppenheimer reeled off the last training sessions of his career. As a surprise, father Norbert Vettel left his son's first racing overall from his karting days in the Aston Martin garage. Vettel himself said goodbye to his fans with a special helmet design.

In the gallery we show you some impressions from the training Friday in Abu Dhabi.
