With the 2015 Formula 1 season drawing to a close in Abu Dhabi this weekend we thought we’d take a closer look at what has happened so far this season. The final race of the season will not change any results in the overall standings at the top with Lewis Hamilton taking first position back in Texas at the US Grand Prix and Team Mercedes winning the Constructors Championship, but lower down the table there is still plenty to play for.
New driver, 18 year old, Max Verstappen is looking to finish in the Top 10 in his first season for Toro Rosso, whilst only a single point separates Bottas and Raikonnen in fourth and fifth position. The race will be well and truly on Sunday to scoop up any last points on offer.
