Formula 1 arrives in Abu Dhabi for a title showdown as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen go head-to-head to secure the crown at the end of a thrilling 2021 campaign.
Hamilton drew level on points with Verstappen after taking a third successive victory in Saudi Arabia - the pair both having scored 369.5 across 21 races.
However, Verstappen does still hold an advantage in that he has won more races than Hamilton this season (nine to eight), meaning he would become World Champion on countback if they are level on points at the end of Sunday's finale.
Several changes have been made to the Yas Marina Circuit for the 2021 event, with chicanes removed and corners reprofiled to take an estimated 10-15 seconds off the lap time.
This weekend's event follows the traditional format, with two practice sessions on Friday, before third practice and qualifying on Saturday. The 58-lap Grand Prix will then be held on Sunday evening at 17:00 local time (13:00 UK time).
