Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Max Verstappen quickest as Lewis Hamilton returns

Lewis Hamilton, returning after missing the last race in Bahrain with coronavirus, was fifth. The world champion was 1.3secs off the pace and behind Renault’s Esteban Ocon and Red Bull’s Alexander Albon. Adding to the irrelevance of the headline lap times, Verstappen’s fastest lap was set on the fastest soft tyre, as were those of Ocon and Albon, while Bottas and Hamilton were running the hard, which is slowest over one lap. Lando Norris was 13th fastest, two places behind his McLaren team-mate Carlos Sainz, while George Russell was 16th on his return to Williams after subbing for Hamilton in Bahrain last weekend.
