Abu Dhabi Track Altered Ahead Of Weekend F1 Crescendo

It's hoped that it'll encourage more overtaking.

The track in Abu Dhabi's been altered ahead of this weekend's Formula One Grand Prix.

The circuit - which has hosted the last race on the calendar for the past seven years - has made changes to aid speed, pursuing and overtaking.

Title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are level on points heading into the final race of the season. 

It comes on the same day as Mercedes have ended their sponsorship deal with the Irish based building materials company - Kingspan.

The company - which has it's headquarters in Cavan - came to a 'mutual' agreement to end the deal due to Kingspan's links to the Grenfell Tower fire.

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton displayed the company's logo on his helmet at Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

However, a statement from the team says it "not appropriate" to continue the partnership.
