F1: Sebastian Vettel replaces Fernando Alonso at Ferrari in 2015
Spaniard is believed to be heading to McLaren next season after 5 frustrating years with the sport's oldest team; Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as the season finale will also mark the end of an era for several drivers, teams
Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as the season finale will also mark the end of an era for several drivers and teams.
Sebastian Vettel's four-year reign over Formula One will officially come to an end on Sunday. The German will also be driving in his last race for Red Bull, with who he has claimed all but one of his 39 wins, with Ferrari finally confirming him as the replacement for Fernando Alonso.
The Spaniard is believed to be heading to McLaren next season after five frustrating years with the sport's oldest team yielded little in the way of results.
Button to quit?
But with McLaren deciding not to announce their driver line-up for next season before December, it's unclear which of Kevin Magnussen or Jenson Button the double world champion is set to replace.
If Button goes, then the Abu Dhabi race will bring the curtain down on a career spanning 265 races over fifteen seasons in the sport, yielding 15 victories and one world championship.
