There are no penalties affecting the grid for the last round of the season in Abu Dhabi, which means Lewis Hamilton retains his first place with Nico Rosberg lining up alongside him for the championship battle. Behind them, Red Bull and Ferrari do battle for best of the rest in the race, although the standings fight between those two teams is all sorted already.

Further back, Toro Rosso's intense weekend saw both drivers out of qualifying in the first session which means they start at the back of the field, although it is Marcus Ericsson who takes up the very final grid slot.
