F1 action moves to Abu Dhabi this weekend and it’s time once again to take a closer look at the potential fantasy game changers at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

As we prepare for the final race of the season, let us take a look at the ideal fantasy assets for the showdown at the Yas Marina circuit. Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez have been the core players in most of our teams. Carlos Sainz and George Russell have emerged as popular picks over the last few weeks thanks to their consistent performances.

Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez, Charles Leclerc- which two drivers appear to be the best bet for the remaining races? Who can we punt on, for the final race of the season? Which constructor seems to be the safest choice – Ferrari or Mercedes or Red Bull? We have got all the answers you’re looking for and we’re back with this season’s final preview of F1 Fantasy!

Two of Verstappen, Perez and Leclerc are a must in your team. If you are trailing by quite a big margin, you might be tempted to punt on Lewis Hamilton but that could eventually turn out to be a suicidal move for your overall rank. It is advisable to stick to the safe picks for the final race of the season.

The likes of Esteban Ocon and George Russell have been very consistent and are great budget picks. At least one of them is a must-buy if you still don’t have him. Red Bull have emerged as the safest bet when it comes to the single constructor slot and seems to be the go-to option ahead of both Ferrari and Mercedes.

What should be the strategy for the season-ending race?

You will get three free substitutions ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Use them to bring in drivers you feel will do well in Abu Dhabi.

A settled core combination including two of Verstappen, Leclerc and Perez is a must and you can build your team around them. Carlos Sainz and George Russell are potentially good picks as a cover for your marquee driver. Esteban Ocon is one more option if you are looking for a budget-friendly, effective pick. Verstappen is once again a pre-race favourite. When it comes to chips, this is the last opportunity to use one – make sure you don’t waste it.

The most important part – Remember to save and submit your teams before deadline which is the qualifying on Saturday night.
