After quite the roller coast we've arrived at the last race of the 2016 F1 season. Rosberg is looking to claim his first Driver's Championship, Hamilton is looking to play spoiler like he did for his first Driver's Championship. He's done all that he can do, starting from the US GP where he's taken pole and the checkered flag for three races in a row. He's now down by 12 points so he'll not only need to win, but Rosberg will need to finish 4th or lower. On the converse Rosberg has plenty of ways he can clench; if he were so incline to pull a Senna on Prost (please don't) he could win with a double DNF. Rosberg won most of these races that Hams has won at the end of the season, last year, so he knows what to do at Yas Marina. Hamilton has been super focused and has answered every threat Rosberg has thrown at him over the past few weeks and has sorted out his GP starting woes. In other news Gutierrez may be without a ride next year so he'll be trying to put his best foot forward. Massa will driving for the final time before retiring from the sport, and Jenson Button will be stepping away from the drivers seat next season so the jury is still out on whether or not he'll return in a future season like he currently states. Hulkenburg will drive his Force India for the last time before moving on to Renault. There will be fireworks in Abu Dhabi no matter what happens, should be a great one and should cleanse the palette from the rain-soaked cluster that was most of the Brazilian Grand Prix (before Verstappen made the field overtaking run of legends to finish 3rd).

Enjoy your weekends with family and be safe out there.
