Sebastian Vettel deserves the Clown Cup, jokes Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton has already claimed the World Championship but there's much to be decided in the final race of 2017

On his right was this year's champion Lewis Hamilton who's favourite at $2.75 for Abu Dhabi, while Vettel is second at $3.60 Both were amused by Ricciardo's appearance.

Formula One technical delegate Jo Bauer said in a statement on Friday (Saturday NZ Time) that Toro Rosso had replaced the motor generator unit-heat (MGU-H) in Hartley's vehicle, which recovers energy from the exhaust.

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have put the tension of this season's championship battle behind them as the Briton joked about awarding the German a "clown cup". While the times of FP1 are rarely too accurate an indication of the weekend's form given the fact it takes place in much hotter conditions than any competitive session, the fact Mercedes and Ferrari remained that close suggests a close fight is in store on Saturday and Sunday.

"I passed you a couple of times", retorted Hamilton.

Red Bull's 20-year-old Dutch driver Max Verstappen was a mere 0.28 slower than Hamilton, fuelling hopes that the finale could be a three-way battle at least, and ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

As has often been the case this year it was Force India that emerged as best of the rest, with Sergio Perez in seventh just 0.010s ahead of teammate Esteban Ocon in eighth.

For the first time, next year will see two quadruple champions start the season in search of a fifth title. Felipe Massa's last ever FP2 session saw him split Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne in the other McLaren.

Toro Rosso are sixth in the constructors' championship, four points clear of Renault and a further two ahead of Haas.

Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz were ninth and 13th respectively for Renault with Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly 15th and the two Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean 16th and 20th.

Brendon Hartley finished 19th, likely focused on race trim knowing he has a 10-place penalty to serve after qualifying for another Renault engine component change inside his Toro Rosso vehicle. At the bottom of the order was Haas' Romain Grosjean, whose session was limited to just 12 laps of the Yas Marina circuit before Haas detected an electrical issue in his auto.
