Valtteri Bottas to start at back of Abu Dhabi grid

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas will start the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from the back of the grid because of an engine-related penalty.
Bottas faces a penalty amounting to 20 places on the grid – anything over 15 and the regulations dictate a start from the back.
Elsewhere, Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel has been excused his media duties on Thursday at Yas Marina after staying in Europe for an extra day because his wife Hannah has given birth to their third child.
Both have been spoken to by team boss Mattia Binotto in the days between the two races and their responsibilities to Ferrari made clear.
