Lewis Hamilton says he believes starting on medium tyres is “the right strategy”, and vows to “give it everything” in the race.
Lewis Hamilton is starting the title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on medium tyres, while his championship rival Max Verstappen will start on softs.
Ahead of the race start Lewis said he believes Mercedes is on the right strategy.
“We don’t know what the strategy is gonna be, whether it will be a one- or two-stop today,” said Hamilton ahead of the race start.
“I guess we’ll see, but definitely, we did a good job yesterday getting through on the Medium tyres in Q2. I’m just gonna have to see how it works for us.

“I hope that is… I think it’s the right strategy. I truly believe in my guys and we’ll be giving everything with what we have.”
Whatever happens, the Briton says he is ready to “give it everything”.
“I’ve just got to prepare in the best way possible. I’ve given it absolutely everything, so then it comes down to just doing what I love doing most, and just being me on track.
“[I’ll] try to assess the situations around me as composed [as possible] and with the best intentions and the best energy I can, and give it everything,” concluded the seven-time champion.
