The finish line for the 2020 Formula 1 season is in sight, the prolonged and compacted saga reaching its conclusion at this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. For the fourth year in a row, though, the season finale will not crown a world champion.

In the opening practice sessions, Max Verstappen led the way for Red Bull in the unrepresentative, sun-kissed FP1, while Valtteri Bottas returned Mercedes to its usual perch in FP2. This was an unusual session in that all three leading drivers (Bottas, Lewis Hamilton and Verstappen) had different issues that stopped them truly showing what they could do over a single lap.
