Formula 1's 2019 season has reached its final stages with its race in Abu Dhabi on the coming weekend and teams will be looking to finish on a high after their ups and downs in this season. Lewis Hamilton has already won his sixth World Championship, making this race less pressurizing for him to win. Mercedes also won their 6th Constructors Championship after Valtteri Bottas won the Japanese Grand Prix with team-mate Lewis Hamilton, coming third behind Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.
