Under the lights at Yas Marina, it's time for the final qualifying session of the season to set the grid for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen has 11 pole positions this season, but the Red Bull has not looked dialed in throughout practice, with Mercedes' George Russell topping two of the three practice sessions.

Can he launch a surprise and grab his first pole of the season? Can Charles Leclerc or Carlos Sainz earn a first-ever Ferrari pole in Abu Dhabi, or can Lando Norris back up his practice pace with a first pole since the 2021 Russian Grand Prix?

We're about to find out!

In the end, it was Verstappen who took a 12th pole of the season and fourth straight in Abu Dhabi.
