The final race of the season is upon us, the 2017 Abu Dhabi GP, and second place is still up for grabs.

5.554km long lap
55 lap race, 305.470km total race distance
3 wins from pole (37.50%)
4 wins from second (50.00%)
7 wins from front row (87.50%)
Only win off of the front row was Raikkonen in 2012 from fourth
4 different winners of the GP
Vettel & Hamilton combined have 75% of the wins, 3 each
Mercedes and Red Bull also have 3 wins each
Ferrari yet to win in Abu Dhabi
If Red Bull get both drivers on the podium they will score their 149th and 150th F1 podium
Bottas must win and Vettel 9th or lower for Bottas to finish 2nd in the championship
If you were to cover the Yas Marina track with 1kg gold bars you would need 24,298,750, costing a total of £771,339,520,000, sadly still not enough to build the Death Star.
To completely cover the track 5cm deep in sand you would need 485,975,000,000 individual grains of sand.
