Lewis Hamilton has won the final race of the 2019 season in Abu Dhabi, dominating the 55 laps to take his 11th race win of the year.
Hamilton crossed the line over 16 seconds ahead of Max Verstappen, who started the race from the front row. However he had to fight for the position after losing out to Charles Leclerc at the start of the race.
After both drivers had made their first pit stop, switching onto the hard tyre, Verstappen closed up on Leclerc and overtook him, despite complaints of turbo lag.
Leclerc made a second pit stop to cover off the fast charging Valtteri Bottas, who started from the back of the grid due to taking on fresh engine components this weekend.
Leclerc crossed the line in third place, however, his podium finish is under scrutiny, as the FIA found that its car breached technical directive 12-19.
Bottas closed in onto the back of Leclerc in the final laps, despite Leclerc making a second pit stop onto the soft tyres on lap 39.
Sergio Perez crossed the line in seventh place to take the 'best of the rest' spot. The Mexican spent 38 laps on the mediums before switching to the hards, which saw him battle through the point finishers in the last laps.
He managed to overtake Lando Norris on the final lap, who was running in seventh place until that time.
Gasly's race effectively ended on the opening lap of the race when he made contact with both Racing Points, which ripped the front wing from his car.
Both Haas' and Alfa Romeos had unspectacular races, crossing the line outside of the points.
