Bottas Wins Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

ABU DHABI – Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes won on Sunday the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which was the 20th and final race in the 2017 Formula One season.

The Finnish driver completed the race in the United Arab Emirates with a time of one hour, 34 minutes and 14.062 seconds.

“It’s a really important win for me. This week: pole, win – I couldn’t be happier,” Bottas said after his victory. “We Finns don’t really show emotion but it doesn’t mean we don’t have any. I can’t show it too much but I feel good.”

Bottas’ British teammate Lewis Hamilton came in second, 3.899s off the pace, ahead of Germany’s Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) who was 19.330s slower than the winner.

Vettel ended the season as runner-up to Hamilton, who had already secured his fourth world championship weeks ago based on points.

“I had a good start but nowhere to go. It was pretty lonely. We had stronger pace in the second half of race but not enough to catch,” Vettel said.

Bottas, who started the race from the pole position, secured his third win of the year and his career, after success in Russia and Austria.

His compatriot Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) was the fourth fastest driver at the Yas Marina Circuit, to end the season fourth in the drivers’ standings, making the most of Australian Daniel Ricciardo’s withdrawal.

Raikkonen was followed by Dutch driver Max Verstappen (Red Bull) and Germany’s Nico Hulkernberg (Renault).
