The final race of the season is upon us.
With both drivers and constructors championships already wrapped up, pride and a chance to show what if is at stake.
Will Ferrari or Red Bull show Mercedes just how close they came to upsetting the status quo?
The final race of 2019 will present the opportunity to race test some new ideas for 2020.
It looks like Valtteri Bottas will take new power unit elements and start from the rear of grid following his disastrous Brazilian Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc kissed the wall with the right side wheels but that was the extent of the damage.
Antonio Giovinazzi spun in the same corner but avoided all contact before resuming his session.
Valtteri Bottas and Romain Grosjean came together at the end of the back straight. This ended Grosjean's session with floor damage but the Mercedes crew rebuilt Bottas' car and he returned to the track to complete the session.
