Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2017 Finale
WMG had the pleasure of hosting 40+ clients at our incredible hospitality venue, for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday, where Valtteri Bottas brought the 2017 Formula One season to a close with an untroubled win, beating his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel at the Yas Marina.
It was Bottas’ third win of the year, but first since July as the Finn denied his team-mate a perfect ending to his fourth title-winning campaign, Hamilton who clinched the world title in Mexico could not find the pace to overtake Valtteri. Lewis said “A big, big congratulations to Valtteri. He did an amazing job to hold me off. I gave it everything on every single lap, but its very hard to overtake here”
Sebastian Vettel finished 19 seconds adrift in a lonely third place, Ahead of Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen. Red Bulls’ Max Verstappen finished fifth, 0.8s behind Raikkonen with Hulkenberg sixth.
Vettel paid a rare tribute to arch-rival Hamilton in the post-race interviews, clinching second place in the Championships with his podium finish.
“Congrats to Valtteri, i am very happy for him, and congrats again to Lewis, He deserved to win the Championship. I hate to say it but he was the better man”
