Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018 and final results

Abu Dhabi was another dominant performance from Hamilton who ends the season with 11 wins and the highest number of points scored by any driver in a season. Vettel came home second with Verstappen and Ricciardo in third and fourth respectively. It was also Alonso's last race in F1 and, although he finished 11th, he ended the grand prix doing doughnuts with Hamilton and Vettel on the straight.

In RealityF1, the RF1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was a four way tie. The team to have for this race was Hamilton, Stroll, Red Bull Racing and Haas.

The 2018 RealityF1 Championship was won by Rob Stone, congratulations Rob Stone you become the eighteenth RealityF1 Champion!

As the season has now ended I have updated the player rankings (a leaderboard of all the players who've contested a RealityF1 season since the game started in 2001). The top ranking player in RealityF1 is Gary ahead of, 2018 runner up, ABrimberry.

As usual, I'm keen to hear any feedback you may have on the game so I can continue to improve it so please email me your views and suggestions for the future.

The site will re-open on Monday and, although you won't be able to create a team for the new season yet, you will still be able to update your profile and account details if you wish (should you change email addresses etc).

RealityF1 will return for the 2019 season. The provisional date for the first race is the 17th March 2019. A month or so before the first race I'll email you to let you know that you can create your team for the coming season.

It only remains for me to thank you for playing RealityF1, I look forward to losing to you again in 2019.
