ABU DHABI – After beating teammate and championship rival Nico Rosberg to the top of the timesheets in first practice today, Lewis Hamilton will be looking to double up in FP2 at Yas Marina as the sun goes down and the lights come on.

Hamilton heads into the final race of the 2014 Formula 1 season with a 17-point lead at the top of the standings, and will win his second world championship if he finishes in the top two on Sunday.

Starting as he means to go on, the Briton finished fastest in FP1, almost two-tenths clear of Rosberg in second place. However, the German driver will be keen on levelling the score in second practice in Abu Dhabi.

Whereas the first session was run during the day and therefore wasn’t truly representative of the conditions for the race, FP2 takes place as the sun goes down in Abu Dhabi, starting at the same time as the grand prix will on Sunday. This gives the teams a great chance to evaluate their long run pace and get in sync for the final round of the year at Yas Marina.

Williams will be hoping to make up for lost time in the second session after both of its cars suffered a bodywork failure in FP1, while Jenson Button was also sidelined due to a technical issue on his McLaren.

After stepping aside for FP1 to allow Adderly Fong (Sauber) and Esteban Ocon (Lotus) to make their F1 weekend debuts, Adrian Sutil and Romain Grosjean will both return to their cars for the second session in Abu Dhabi.
