Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2023: How to watch F1 live on TV, online

It’s the final F1 race of 2023 season as we head to Abu Dhabi after the impressive spectacle of the Las Vegas race in the previous round.

The drivers’ and constructors’ championships were settled long ago, so there’s not much to play for in the last round aside from getting more points to move up the table and earn more prize money.

In that sense it’s Mercedes vs Ferrari as the compete for the second placing in the constructors, with only four points separating the two teams. Aston Martin will need a big points haul if they’re to reclaim fourth position from McLaren, while towards the bottom of the table, Haas could leapfrog Alfa Romeo if they score enough points and their rivals don’t.
