Mercedes doing ‘everything we can’ to see Hamilton return in Abu Dhabi

"You can't win them all", he said, having come home third behind triumphant Dutchman Max Versappen of Red Bull and his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas. I hope and pray that in 2022, the cars are better to follow. I knew at some stage if I got it it would be tough because there are people out there losing their lives.

Valtteri Bottas says he's heading into F1's season finale in Abu Dhabi "full of energy" after taking a break this week from reading the news following a hard race at Sakhir.

"Then get back into training and get my body back to where I know it should be". "I live to fight another day and I still managed to finish with a podium".

Vettel said the trophy took him by surprise: "I've never finished P14 before and got a trophy so it was definitely a nice memory". "I am very grateful for that", he said.

But Hamilton - who said after qualifying on Saturday that he was "not the usual me" and still had "some feeling within my lungs" after his battle with Covid-19, which ruled him out of 2020's penultimate race in Bahrain - admitted he was feeling the effects after Sunday's 55-lap race, when the world champion, and Mercedes, were uncharacteristically off the pace.

Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff has outlined that Hamilton's condition is improving but says a decision has yet to be taken on who drives the W11 this weekend.

With the Buds Pro, you get two-way speakers - a 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter, with three microphones and a voice pickup unit. The main difference between this model and the other variants is that this comes with four rear-facing cameras.

"I always found it very odd when you saw world leaders laughing it off like it's nothing".

A new contract with the Silver Arrows is yet to be agreed and that's led to suggestions the Brit could sign up with a different team for the 2021 season.

"And, considering the last couple of weeks that I have had, I am really genuinely happy with the weekend".

"We will have this conversation", Wolff said.

He further clarified, "I plan to be here next year, I want to be here next year. And, of course, we need good tyres!" "(Winning in Abu Dhabi) is a good boost and I just hope we learn from our mistakes we made also at the beginning of this year and hopefully we will build a better auto for the beginning of next year". I think us, as a team, have more to do together and more to achieve both in the sport but even more outside the sport.

"We always said we would do it after the title was won, and then the virus delayed us for another 10 days, two weeks".
