F1: Hamilton wins the season finale in Abu Dhabi


World Champion Lewis Hamilton has won the final race of the 2018 Formula 1 season. The Mercedes star prevailed in Abu Dhabi against Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari and Max Verstappen in the Red Bull. It was Hamilton's eleventh win of the season, the fourth in Abu Dhabi and the 73rd overall of his career.

Daniel Ricciardo finished his final race for Red Bull in fourth place ahead of Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

Kimi Raikkonen, still the last World Champion for Ferrari, dropped out early in his farewell race for the Scuderia, but retained the third place in the World Cup rankings.

For Nico Hülkenberg the race was over after a spectacular rollover already in the first round. Fortunately, the German survived the accident unhurt.

Fernando Alonso came in eleventh in his 311th and last Formula One race. "It was fun to drive with these people, thanks, Formula 1, "said the 37-year-old, who still needs a success in the 500 miles of Indianapolis for the legendary "Triple Crown" after victories in Monte Carlo and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
