Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas will be hoping for a strong finish to the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship season at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 12.
The Finn is set to finish third in the Drivers' Championship standings this year, having been runner-up to Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in 2019 and 2020.
Bottas has amassed 218 points after 21 rounds and cannot be caught by Red Bull Racing-Honda's Sergio Perez, who trails him by 28 going into the final race of 2021.

The 32-year-old came in third at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix which was won by Hamilton, with Max Verstappen finishing second on the podium.
Bottas will drive his Mercedes for the last time in Abu Dhabi as he is joining Alfa Romeo Racing from 2022 onwards. The Turkish Grand Prix was his solitary win in the current campaign.
"I feel good. One more to go with the team," he said. "I think it's going to be emotional, even for a Finn, so looking forward to it."

Mercedes are in a commanding position to lift the Constructors' Championship crown with an 28-point gap between them and rivals Red Bull Racing-Honda, while the Drivers' Championship title is still up for grabs as Hamilton and Verstappen go into the season finale tied at the top of the standings.
"Yeah, a good day for that, and obviously with Lewis and Max [Verstappen] now on equal points, it's going to be a pretty exciting race in Abu Dhabi," commented Bottas.
