Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Video previews

Brendon Hartley is still waiting for his first penalty-free F1 weekend. The Kiwi, competing in his fourth race for Toro Rosso (his eighth in eight weekends, incidentally, if you include two World Endurance Championship events and a sports car race), is facing a grid drop of at least 10 places after the team put a new MGU-H unit in his car -- the ninth fitted to that car (which was piloted by Daniil Kvyat before) this season. Here's hoping he has a more reliable car for his first full season in 2018.
