We're finally down to the last race of the 2014 F1 Season. The Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi. This race will decide the drivers championship and also offer double points for the top 10 finishers.

So, it's time for our circuit preview.

"Yas Marina Circuit" is located in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE and is the current location for the Abu Dhabi GP. The circuit first opened in October of 2009.

The circuit is 3.451 miles in length and has 21 turns. This one runs anti-clockwise and has a capacity of 50,000. The race consists of 55 laps.

Last year Mark Webber started on Pole Position but finished Second. It was Sebastian Vettel who took the win, with Nico Rosberg coming in second.

There was only one retirement during the race and that was Kimi Raikkonen due to a collision.

Abu Dhabi is not usually the last race of the season, but it is this year and is always a fan favourite with it's desert layout and unique pit entry. This is also one of the only twilight races on the calendar.
