George Claims Fourth in Drivers’ Championship with Top-Five Finish in Abu Dhabi
George ends the last race of 2022 in P5 and claims fourth in the Drivers' Standings at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The 4.3km circuit sits 2km above sea level, making it extremely demanding for both the driver and the car due to the thin air.
The track is comprised of eight left-handers and nine right-handers, including the fast, banked turn 17 and has the Foro Sol Baseball stadium inside of turn 14.

I am really looking forward to heading to Mexico for the Mexico City Grand Prix. The race presents a lot of interesting challenges such as the high altitude, which affects us as drivers but also the performance of the car, and we have to take into consideration these things when preparing for the weekend. Equally, these challenges offer us an opportunity and I also can’t wait to see all the amazing fans and support we’ve come to associate this race with.
FP1 for the Mexican Grand Prix will get underway at 5:30 PM GMT on Friday, November 5.
