Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel given guard of honour by Lewis Hamilton and fellow F1 drivers on the grid ahead of his final ever race at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix… and he claims a point to close his 16-season career

Sebastian Vettel was given a warm send off into retirement by his fellow Formula One colleagues who gave him a guard of honour ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The four-time world champion announced his retirement from the sport earlier in the season and the season finale at the Yas Marina circuit will bring down the curtain on a glorious career where he has established himself as one of the sport’s great drivers. The popular Vettel was also given a send off by Aston Martin, who stuck a sticker of the driver with his team inside the cockpit of his car reading ‘Thank you Seb’. But despite admitting he and his team chose the wrong race strategy with their one-stop race, he finished the race inside the top 10 to go out on a high. ‘I enjoyed the race’, he said on the track after his final race.
