    Lewis Hamilton to race at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday

    Lewis Hamilton will take part in this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after testing negative for Covid-19.

    The seven-time world champion missed the Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain last weekend after contracting coronavirus.

    Hamilton, 35, arrived in Abu Dhabi on Thursday after completing 10 days of quarantine in Bahrain.

    Fellow Briton, George Russell, 22, who starred on his Mercedes debut at the Sakhir Grand Prix as Hamilton's stand-in, will now return to Williams.

    Formula 1's governing body the FIA confirmed that Hamilton had returned a "number of negative Covid-19 tests" before travelling for the final race of the season.

    Mercedes had said it was "possible" they would make the decision as to whether Hamilton raced as late as shortly before Saturday's final practice session, which runs for an hour and starts at 10:00 GMT, three hours prior to qualifying.

    Hamilton released a video message on social media on Tuesday in which he said he was "feeling great" and had just completed his first physical training session since his positive test.

    "It has been one of the hardest weeks I've had for some time," he said, adding: "I hope I can get back in the car soon."

    Friday's first practice session begins at 09:00.

    Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Max Verstappen quickest as Lewis Hamilton returns

    Red Bull's Max Verstappen narrowly edged Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas to lead first practice at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    Verstappen was just 0.034 seconds quicker than Bottas. Lewis Hamilton, returning after missing the last race in Bahrain with coronavirus, was fifth.

    Hamilton missed the first half of the session with a brake problem.

    The world champion was 1.3secs off the pace and behind Renault's Esteban Ocon and Red Bull's Alexander Albon.

    The first session at Abu Dhabi is notoriously unrepresentative because it takes place in the heat of the day, whereas qualifying and race are held at sunset, when track temperatures drop, affecting car performance.

    Adding to the irrelevance of the headline lap times, Verstappen's fastest lap was set on the fastest soft tyre, as were those of Ocon and Albon, while Bottas and Hamilton were running the hard, which is slowest over one lap.

    It was a largely uneventful session, although Albon had a spin at the chicane of Turns 11 and 12, and Renault's Daniel Ricciardo failed to set a lap time after stopping on track with a fuel-pressure problem.

    Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc trialed a new floor in preparation for the 2021 season when F1 is introducing rule changes that are aimed at slowing the cars to reduce the risk of tyre failures. A portion of the rear floor is cut away to reduce downforce.

    Mick Schumacher, driving in this first session for Haas as a warm-up for his graduation to F1 for the US-based team, was 18th fastest, ahead only of his team-mate Pietro Fittipaldi.

    Lando Norris was 13th fastest, two places behind his McLaren team-mate Carlos Sainz, while George Russell was 16th on his return to Williams after subbing for Hamilton in Bahrain last weekend.

    Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton grateful to be back after coronavirus 'experience'

    Lewis Hamilton described having coronavirus as "an experience" after he returned to his Mercedes car at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    Hamilton missed last weekend's race in Bahrain after contracting Covid-19 but tested negative on Wednesday in time to race at Yas Marina.

    "It's not something I really want to go into deeply about," the world champion said. "It was an experience, for sure.

    "I am just happy to be back and grateful to be back with the team."

    Hamilton's team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who was fastest in second practice session on Friday, said: "Nice to see him healthy and back. You don't wish anyone to have that virus and apparently it was not that mild."

    Max Verstappen ended a frustrating season for Red Bull on a high with victory in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    The Dutchman took his second win of the year ahead of Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, who were unable to challenge in second and third.

    An early safety car locked in the strategies of the leaders and led to a soporific race.

    McLaren took third in the constructors' championship as Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz took fifth and sixth.

    The prize for overhauling Racing Point - who started the race 10 points ahead but for whom Lance Stroll could finish only 10th as team-mate Sergio Perez retired early on - is in the region of $10m (7.5m) of prize money.

    Red Bull's Alexander Albon was fourth, 20 seconds behind team-mate Verstappen but close enough to the Mercedes to block any adventurous strategy choices, as the team weigh up whether to retain the British-Thai driver for 2021.

    Sir Frank Williams 'stable' after going in hospital, says family in statement

    Sir Frank Williams, who built the Williams team into one of the most successful in Formula 1, is in a stable condition after going into hospital.

    The 78-year-old and daughter Claire stepped away from Williams earlier this year after its sale to US investors.

    "Frank's medical condition is a private matter and therefore the family will not be releasing any further details at this time," read a statement.

    Williams spent some time in hospital with pneumonia in 2016.

    He has used a wheelchair since a car crash in France in 1986.

    During his time with Williams, the team won won nine constructors' championships and seven drivers' titles, and dominated much of the 1980s and 1990s.

    Alexander Albon hurt at being replaced by Sergio Perez at Red Bull

    Alexander Albon says "it hurts" after he was replaced at Red Bull by Sergio Perez for the 2021 season.

    British-Thai Albon, 24, was demoted to be the team's reserve driver as 30-year-old Mexican Perez was brought in to partner Max Verstappen.

    "I gave it everything out there, but it wasn't quite enough," said Albon on social media.

    "I have more to give and my focus is getting back for 2022 and to wave the Thai flag again."

    Albon was out-qualified by Verstappen at every race in 2020, and was on average 0.523 seconds a lap slower.

    In races, while Verstappen took two wins and nine other podiums finishes in 17 races, Albon's best results were two third places in the Tuscan and Bahrain Grands Prix.

    Nikita Mazepin: Haas reaffirm commitment to Russian after investigation

    Formula 1 team Haas say Nikita Mazepin will drive for the team in 2021 after concluding their investigation into the Russian's conduct in a video recently posted online.

    In the clip, Mazepin appeared to inappropriately touch a woman in a car.

    The 21-year-old deleted the video from his Instagram account and apologised for his "inappropriate behaviour".

    Haas later described the video as abhorrent but on Wednesday said the matter has been dealt with internally.

    "Haas F1 Team would like to reaffirm that Nikita Mazepin and Mick Schumacher will form its driver line-up for the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship," Haas said in a statement.

    "As per the team's previous statement regarding the actions of Nikita Mazepin (9 December) - this matter has now been dealt with internally and no further comment shall be made."

    Mazepin, who finished fifth in Formula 2 this season, was first announced as a driver for Haas for the 2021 and 2022 season earlier this month.

    Sir Frank Williams discharged from hospital

    Sir Frank Williams has been discharged from hospital and is "on the mend at home", the Williams F1 team says.

    Williams, 78, who built the team named after him into one of the most successful in Formula 1, was admitted to hospital earlier this month.

    During his time with Williams, the team won nine constructors' championships and seven drivers' titles, and dominated much of the 1980s and 1990s.

    He and daughter Claire stepped down in September after selling Williams.

    "We're delighted to say that Sir Frank has been discharged from hospital and is now on the mend at home," the Williams F1 team said.

    "The Williams family would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time."

    Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has been knighted in the Queen's New Year Honours list.

    The Briton, 35, sealed a seventh drivers' title at the Turkish Grand Prix in November - equalling Michael Schumacher's championships record.

    Rugby league legend Rob Burrow is made an MBE for services to rugby and his awareness campaign since being diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

    British Billie Jean King Cup captain Anne Keothavong also becomes an MBE.

    The former British number one, 37, represented Great Britain in the event - previously known as the Fed Cup - before becoming captain in 2016.

    Others made an MBE include former Tottenham and Chelsea striker Jimmy Greaves and ex-Wolves midfielder Ron Flowers, both World Cup winners with England in 1966.

    Greaves, who later became a popular television personality, suffered a severe stroke in 2015 and his son Danny said of the MBE: "We are very, very proud of Dad. Always have been, always will be.

    "At almost 81 to receive an honour from Her Majesty the Queen is just something very, very special."

    Following rugby union side Exeter Chiefs' domestic and European titles last season, director of rugby Rob Baxter is made an OBE while captain Joe Simmonds becomes an MBE.

    "I couldn't quite work out if it was real or whether it was spam or someone having bit of a prank," Baxter said of the moment he received the news.

    "It turned up by email and not in an official letter. You download it, read it and check who it has been emailed from with a Google search.

    "I was sat there with my wife, both of us in a slightly bemused state. My family are delighted."

    Former England captain Gillian Coultard has been appointed an MBE for services to football, along with former Swansea City and Wales forward Alan Curtis.

    Chairman of the Racecourse Association Maggie Carver has been made a CBE, as has former jockey Bob Champion and chief executive and secretary of the R&A Peter Dawson.

    Promoter Barry Hearn becomes an OBE for services to sport, having been involved in boxing, snooker and darts among other sports.

    "It has been a great joy to be involved in such a wide range of sports for over 40 years," said Hearn.

    "To be recognised for that work is an honour."

    Former Rugby Football League chairman, ex-Football Association chief executive and former BBC head of sport Brian Barwick, now chairman of football's National League, receives an OBE.

    Meanwhile, Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby chair Kevin Aitchison is made an MBE, and footballer-turned-boxer Curtis Woodhouse is among those to receive the British Empire Medal.
