What channel is the grand prix on? Abu Dhabi TV and stream details as Lewis Hamilton bids to make F1 history against Max Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton will bid to become the most decorated F1 driver in history this weekend as he battles with Max Verstappen for the world title in an exciting season finale in Abu Dhabi.

The duo are incredibly locked on the same points total of 369.5 heading into the last round having been involved in a tense tussle all year for the 2021 championship.

The pair were involved in another collision at the penultimate Saudi Arabia Grand Prix last Sunday - where Hamilton took a dramatic victory to ensure the title would go to the wire.

It sets up a winner-takes-all shoot-out in Abu Dhabi, although in the unlikely scenario where the Mercedes (Hamilton) and Red Bull (Verstappen) rivals finish the season on the same points total, the Dutchman would claim the title due to having more race wins over the course of the season.

A victory for Hamilton would see him become the most successful F1 driver of all-time, moving him one world title ahead of Michael Schumacher's record of seven drivers' championships.
