Ferrari's Charles Leclerc will be looking to deny Red Bull Racing a one-two finish in the drivers' standings at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday, November 20.
The Monegasque overtook Sergio Perez into second place after the Brazilian Grand Prix, which saw the former (P4) finish three places ahead of the latter (P7).

Leclerc is tied with the Mexican on 290 points but leads him in the overall classification due to having won one race more this season.
The 25-year-old triumphed in the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix and went on to win the Australian Grand Prix as well as the Austrian Grand prix, while securing another seven podium finishes.

Leclerc expressed his frustration after seeing the Prancing Horse change their mind during the race in Sao Paulo, which led to team-mate Carlos Sainz taking P3.
Following a collision with McLaren's Lando Norris on lap 7, Leclerc found himself behind Sainz in the closing stages and asked over the team radio whether positions would be exchanged, which didn't happen in the end.
"I had that [earlier] shunt, [so] to finish P4 is great," he began. "I asked on the radio in the last few laps [about switching positions].
"I was frustrated about that in the heat of the moment, because we had that discussion before the race and, for some reason, we changed our minds, which I don't know why.
"It was frustrating, and I hope that in Abu Dhabi we'll be fast enough for me to get the second place in the championship. If not, it's like this."
