Our drivers' thoughts on Abu Dhabi…
"I'm really excited and looking forward to the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi! It's a track I really like, especially because I have some really good memories from racing there last year, where I won the GP2 Series title. It's a place that therefore means a lot to me, also because I was on pole position there for the last two GP2 seasons! It's also a race that starts in day light but ends at nighttime under the floodlights, so it's a bit different to usual and makes it even more special. The fireworks at the end of the race are also quite spectacular and I like it because they always try to create an amazing atmosphere... and they really manage!! I will give my very best; we need to really push and keep our sixth position in the Constructors' Championship – it's really important for the team and us drivers, as we want to make sure the team can develop the car as much as we'd like for next year. I will do my best and hopefully finish the season on a high in order to start with a strong baseline for 2018."
