opponents we have a mercedes, they've been a benchmark team the last seven years. nobody else is won in formula one for the last 11 years, between rebel and mercedes was up at the last seven in this hyper error they've been totally dominant. so to be at this final race, tied on points, it's a shoot—out between the two guys, it's exciting to be part of, it's an amazing thing for formula one. and i'm sure it's going to be one of the biggest if not biggest sporting events of the year. biggest if not biggest sporting events of the year. staying with formula one where the abu dhabi grand prix will be staying on the calendar until at least 2030, after the country signed a new contract with fi organisers. the race is one of four in the middle east, and will be the final race on the circuit for the next decade. the track has a reputation for dull races, but the layout has been tweaked ahead of this year's championship showdown — and it's anyone's guess which way it will go. we were in unmarked territory as a team.
and obviously with the year that we've had, i'm sure so many people would've ruled us out being this close right at the end. so it's been an incredible group effort from everyone back at the factory and at the track. and no one's ever done eight before. after last year, i didn't have a lot of hope that we would be sitting here, you know, end of the season, fighting for a title, but i think, from the start, you know, we were very competitive, and we had some good results, a bit of bad luck as well, but, overall, we can be really proud of the whole team effort. you know, to be sitting here and fighting for this title. now to snooker and reigning champion mark selby has been knocked out of the scottish open, losing a—3 to anthony mcgill. mcgilljoins ronnie o' sullivan in the quarter—finals after the six—time world champion came through a close match with welshmanjamiejones,
