Max Verstappen starts the final race of the 2022 season in Abu Dhabi on pole position ahead of teammate Sergio Perez.

Red Bull are looking to secure their first 1-2 in the Drivers' Championship, with both Perez and Charles Leclerc entering the race level on points for P2.

Perez must outscore Leclerc to take the honours, so it will be critical for the Red Bull pair to stay ahead of the Ferrari driver during the race.

Daniel Ricciardo takes a three-place grid drop for this race after his collision with Kevin Magnussen during the Brazilian Grand Prix.

This promotes Fernando Alonso up to P10 starting alongside Sebastian Vettel, who makes his final F1 start before retirement.
