Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Sebastian Vettel crashes as Valtteri Bottas tops times

Sebastian Vettel crashed his Ferrari late in first practice at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The German was fourth fastest, 1.949 seconds slower than Bottas, whose best time was set on medium tyres at the start of a weekend at which the Finn knows he will start from the back because of a grid penalty for using too many engine parts following his failure at the last race in Brazil.
And that was especially the case this time, with Albon nearly 0.5secs off Hamilton, who was 0.6secs behind his team-mate, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel a further 0.1secs behind and Haas driver Romain Grosjean sixth ahead of the second Ferrari of Charles Leclerc.
