F1 2019 driver line-up: Drivers for EVERY team CONFIRMED - including Hamilton, Vettel

The special livery will highlight the end of Alonso's 18-year stint in Formula 1 - a career marked by 32 wins in 311 starts (a winning percentage of 10.3%). There's been a bit of bad luck, a few driver errors and some areas where we need to improve as a team.

The three drivers hold 11 of some of the most recent world championships won in a golden era for driving talent in the sport. It has been a challenging year with the reset after the summer break, but we've had an incredibly loyal workforce with a tremendous work ethic.

"I wanted to show "Still I Rise" on my back", said Hamilton, referring to a poem by writer and civil rights activist Maya Angelou.

The new wing complies with the dimension requirements of the current rules, but has been adapted to simulate some of the restrictions that are coming in for 2019 - including much cleaner endplates to minimise the effects of outwash.

Alonso triumphed at the Le Mans 24 Hours with Toyota this year and the double Monaco Grand Prix victor is now chasing Indy to complete the "Triple Crown of Motorsport".

Hamilton, Vettel and the Spaniard - three great champions - spun their cars in a cloud of smoke at the end of their slowing down lap, before stepping out for hugs and words of mutual respect. "The circuit rewards all-round auto performance and has a number of signature features including a pitlane that emerges from under the track".

A sad sign-off: Alonso will start the final race of his F1 career in 15th position.

"I'm honoured to enter this competition which my father always loved and in which he set the bar very high together with Sebastian", Mick said. For now, I'm not ruling anything out. I tried everything until the last lap today.

Kimi Raikkonen retired early in the race, bringing out the safety auto for the second time after Nico Hulkenberg crashed out in spectacular fashion.

All in the F1 community certainly wishes him well.

Hulkenberg has "no obvious injuries" after the incredible scenes in Abu Dhabi.
