Lewis Hamilton ends this Saturday in a dominant fashion in Abu Dhabi, as he claimed the pole position and Mercedes achieved a front row lockout. The Briton long-windedly thanked the team during the FIA press conference, as he highlighted the tremendous team effort that brought them to where they are now. 

"What a great way to end the season with a 1-2 qualifying session. I'm really proud of everyone at Mercedes, I couldn't have done this without the support and I'm really proud to be a part of the team. If you look at the team's performance on a race weekend this year - our mechanics, our engineers, our strategists - we've all raised our game and we continue to elevate ourselves as a team which is really inspiring to me; it encourages me to go out there and not let them down."

Mercedes saved a sort of 'party mode' for Q3, as it shows. The Silver Arrows have been incredibly quick and have managed to outscore the rivals by all means, although Ferrari seemed to have a fair shot at his last attempt. "The qualifying session today was great, it was a lot of fun. It went quite smoothly, the team did a really good job in getting the car into the right window. It's always difficult to improve on your last lap, particularly when your first lap in Q3 is pretty good, but I managed to increase the gap. It's still a long race tomorrow, there's a lot of work to do, but I'm really happy with today. I want to finish the season on a solid high, so that I can use that foundation to start strong next year".
