The big day has arrived as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton go head-to-head for victory - and the 2021 world title - in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

A thrilling qualifying session ended with Verstappen storming to pole position, some four-tenths clear of Hamilton, though the contenders will start the race on different tyres - Verstappen on the Soft and Hamilton on the Medium.

Verstappen and Hamilton are tied on 369.5 points, with Verstappen leading by virtue of winning more races this season (9-8 in his favour).

Sunday's race will get underway in twilight conditions at 17:00 local time (13:00 UK time) and run for 58 laps.
