Will five-time champion Lewis Hamilton close out the current campaign with another victory or will some other driver manage to find his way into the winner’s circle in the final F1 battle of 2018? Here’s a closer look at the Formula 1 odds for the 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Prediction

Lewis Hamilton finished second to Valterri Bottas a year ago and just in front of Sebastian Vettel. With nothing left to drive for, I don’t think Hamilton is going to actually go all-out for the victory, which is why I’m going to advise you to back Bottas to win this season-ending race for the second consecutive season. Bottas finished second to Hamilton in back-to-back races in Japan and Russia and Mercedes has won this event ever year since 2013.

I’m also going with Sebastian Vettel to beat out Hamilton for second place. Vettel has finished on the podium in four of the last races at Abu Dhabi including a pair of consecutive third place finishes the last two seasons. Don’t be shocked, but there’s a reason why Lewis Hamilton is not the favorite here and it’s because he has nothing left to go all out for. Valterri Bottas wins, with Sebastian Vettel finishing second and Lewis Hamilton, third!
