The 2017 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (officially the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix)[1] was the twentieth and final race of the 2017 Formula One season, and the ninth time the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was held. It was held between 24 November and 26 November 2017.

In qualifying, Valtteri Bottas took his second consecutive pole position, with his teammate and World Champion of 2017, Lewis Hamilton, alongside him on the front row, and Sebastian Vettel qualified third behind both Mercedes cars.

In the race, Bottas kept his lead unlike in the previous race in Brazil, and went on to take his third victory. Hamilton, having been battling for the lead but failed to make a successful overtake, settled for second place, while Vettel completed the podium and scored enough points to become the runner-up of 2017.
