The sun has now set on the 2017 season with Valtteri Bottas taking the last race win of the year at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Here’s how the finale unfolded.

There were plenty of team photos being taken to cap the 2017 campaign. Felipe Massa featuring in his final one before his retirement.

There was also a class of 2017 photo with plenty of sunglasses on show…

Time for one last drivers’ parade…

Here was how the drivers lined up in Abu Dhabi.

And the start of the grand prix was marked with an impressive fly-over…

At least the sunset looked good.
