It was also difficult to embroider the impression of speed in the old logo on shirts, etc.

With the 2017 season coming to a close, Mercedes and Hamilton can now start discussing the Brit's contract, which expires at the end of 2018.

"We hold in high regard the incumbent mark". There has been so much support.

"It's a great, great track but unfortunately it doesn't suit the cars very well". Lance Stroll, meanwhile, produced a fine late lap to put himself in the second phase.

The Briton scored points in every race of the season, underlining his dominance this year. He deserved to win the championship.

WOT: My first take on the new logo was a bit of Scalextric track gone wrong.

Bottas led away from pole position before the two Mercedes cars disappeared into the distance, leaving the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel several seconds adrift in third.

"So we wanted to keep it simple and clear". "I was like - where are all the back-markers..."

Was this change needed?

Hamilton said: "A big, big congratulations to Valtteri".

Vettel will be confident he can get it done at the start.

However, complaints about the track's overtaking-unfriendly nature are long standing and Hamilton has urged organisers to address the eminent problems in order to do more justice to the event itself. After the initial runs, it was Mercedes leading the way by a comfortable margin. Hamilton inherited the lead and pushed before pitting himself after 24 laps, re-joining second again.

His team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr retired for the fourth time in six races after the team did not attach the front-left tyre properly at his pitstop.

"It's such a beautiful place here in Abu Dhabi, everyone has such an amazing time", said the world champion.

Liberty Media's new F1 trademark is a stylized F and 1, similar to the red ESPN logo.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said he had not seen any noticeable drop-off in Hamilton's commitment.

In 2015, he won his third title with three races to go and team-mate Nico Rosberg beat him in all the remaining grands prix.

Raikkonen crossed the line in fourth place, 45 seconds down on Bottas, with Max Verstappen fifth.

"Fans want to heighten their association with Formula 1 through the drivers, competition, the human side of the sport and the feeling of being on the edge when watching wheel-to-wheel racing".

Hulkenberg secured the place despite a five-second penalty for cutting a corner on lap three when he came under attack from Sergio Perez's Force India.

We'll be able to judge if that's a good or bad thing in a few years.
