2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (Nov 21 - 23)

Although the driver's title is still on the line, there was much talk going into the double points season finale about next year's driver shuffle. Ferrari finally announced the end of its relationship with Fernando Alonso, which also allowed them to confirm Sebastian Vettel for next year. Alonso is understood to join McLaren in 2015 but the official announcement has been pushed to December with the team still undecided which of its two drivers will be retained. It also looked like Caterham and Marussia would be back but only the former is in Abu Dhabi with Will Stephens taking the seat vacated by Marcus Ericcson.

As for the championship; Rosberg has a mountain to climb as leader Hamilton looks highly unlikely to finish any lower than second.
