The season finale will take place in Abu Dhabi as it has for the previous few seasons, but with significant changes to the course that the drivers are familiar with. Since 2009, Hamilton has won five races and been on the podium nine times while racing there. Verstappen has also got a win over there (2020) and he also earned a place in the Abu Dhabi GP's podium twice before too (2018 and 2019).
During the restart, Hamilton consistently gained momentum to reach the very top of the Grand Prix race and maintained it till the very end to unlock another achievement on his profile by equalling Michael Schumacher’s incredible record.
Hamilton finishing second in United States Grand Prix was enough to win him his sixth world title. Valtteri Bottas won his fourth race of the season in Austin but that wasn’t enough to deny the Briton from claiming the drivers' title as Red bull’s Max Verstappen also came third. Hamilton now on six means he’s only one title away from matching Michael Schumacher’s seven title wins.
Mercedes has set a new record as the greatest in F1 history, breaking the former record set by Michael Schumacher and Ferrari from 2000 to 2004. Hamilton and Bottas praised the Mercedes team for winning their sixth title in six years in an interview.
