Rowland wins Abu Dhabi feature, then disqualified (Update)
Artem Markelov gets the win
Artem Markelov gets the win
UPDATE
 Unlike in NASCAR where a cheater always keeps his win, Oliver Rowland has been disqualified from victory at the Formula 2 Feature Race at the Yas Marina Circuit, thus promoting Artem Markelov to the win.

Rowland overhauled Markelov after the pit stop phase in the floodlit race to capture victory, his third of the year, but post-race checks deemed his car to be illegal.

Scrutineers deemed that the skid block on Rowland's car was below the prescribed thickness, and he has been excluded as a consequence.

Hamilton and Bottas begin to gap field in final practice
Lewis Hamilton
Lewis Hamilton

After Friday’s incredibly tight sessions, the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes started to show its dominance in Saturday afternoon’s running at Yas Marina in preparation for the Abu Dhabi GP. Lewis Hamilton led the way from teammate Valtteri Bottas, with the Ferraris of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel half a second down.

However, it should be remembered that Mercedes always turns up the wick in their power unit for qualifying and tomorrow’s race, so not too much should be read into the FP3 times as the 1/2- second gap will probably grow even larger.

Kari soars to maiden victory

From left, Russell, Kari and Maini
Niko Kari drove a perfect race in this afternoon’s Race 1 at the Yas Marina Circuit, pushing up to the lead at the start and absorbing all the pressure his rivals could through at him, along with a couple of VSC periods, for his maiden win in the GP3 Series ahead of 2017 champion George Russell and Arjun Maini. 

The victory was made at the start: when the lights went out Arden teammates Leonardo Pulcini and Kari made great getaways from P2 and P3 respectively, leaving poleman Russell the choice of which driver to cover. He chose the Italian and pushed across to the inside line, leaving the outside wide open for Kari to swoop through and into the lead at turn 2, ahead of Russell, Pulcini and Maini, while behind them Nirei Fukuzumi and Raoul Hyman were slow to get away from the grid, delaying most of their rivals.

'UAE could have F1 driver by tomorrow if they want,' says Jones
Ed Jones
Ed Jones
The UAE could have a Formula One driver by tomorrow if they wanted thanks to the new expatriate rule, according to Dubai-born Indy Car Rookie of the Year Ed Jones.

Earlier this month, President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan decreed that all expatriate athletes born in the UAE could now represent the country.

Jones, who finished third in America’s Indy 500 this year, is arguably the highest achieving UAE-born expatriate athlete, and if there were a UAE sports personality of the year award, he would be a solid nomination for 2017.

Hamilton enters pitlane after nipping Vettel by 1/10th sec.

As in FP1, there was just a tenth of a second between Mercedes and Ferrari in Friday evening’s second practice in Abu Dhabi. But as the sun set, this time it was Lewis Hamilton who just had the edge over Sebastian Vettel, with third-placed Daniel Ricciardo keeping Red Bull very much in the mix.

Kimi Raikkonen was fourth quickest in the 2nd Ferrari, 0.475s off the pace, with Valtteri Bottas two tenths further back in fifth in the 2nd Mercedes.
