If the seven-time world champion is not ready to participate in the season finale, the Brit George Russell will return to take the wheel of the Mercedes of Hamilton. At the Sakhir GP, the 22-year-old led the race for a long time and then was deprived of victory after a rough pit stop and ending up with a flat tire.

An additional problem for Hamilton's participation in the season finale could be the strict entry rules in Abu Dhabi, as only in the case of Formula 1 was there an exception to the requirement to carry out a 14-day quarantine.
