Lewis Hamilton has Carlos Sainz goal in Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to avoid unwanted F1 record

Date:


But Sainz will move ahead of Hamilton if the Spaniard takes his second win of the season no matter where the Brit finishes. The 28-year-old’s only win of the season came at the British Grand Prix and he has had six retirements throughout the year.

Those DNFs have proven costly for Ferrari as they still have a battle with Mercedes for second in the Constructors’ Championship. Mercedes are just 19 points behind Ferrari in the standings, although the Silver Arrows have work to do with both their drivers qualifying behind Sainz and Charles Leclerc.

But Hamilton’s main focus in the season finale will be making sure that he doesn’t fall back down to sixth in the Drivers’ Championship in what would ultimately be his worst ever season in F1.
