Sergio Perez ended the final practice session of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on top of the timesheets as he beat out his team-mate Max Verstappen.

In what is a very important weekend for the Mexican as he aims for P2 in the Drivers’ Championship, he got off on the front foot as he set a time of 1:24.982

He ended the session 0.152 seconds ahead of Verstappen followed by the two Mercedes as the Silver Aroows continued to show their pace.

Meanwhile Lewis Hamilton may start with a grid penalty after he appeared to overtake two cars while the red flag was shown. The incident was caused after a part of Pierre Gasly’s front right wheel broke and was left discarded on the edge of the circuit.

Hamilton was on a flying lap and overtook a McLaren and Haas while the flags appeared to be shown. The incident is to be investigated following the session.

Charles Leclerc ended the session by stating it was “not looking good” as the fronts are gone after four corners.
