A broad smile on Hamilton's face as he makes his way to the waiting room for the podium. The drivers seem a little confused about what happened to Vettel. We'll find out what we can after the race so make sure you keep checking the site this afternoon for all the reaction.

As the British national anthem blares out around Yas Marina all that's left to say is thank you for joining us for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. We'll be back with more live commentary from Brazil in two weeks time as well as providing all the latest news and reaction in between.

Lap 55

Hamilton celebrates with his team and family in parc ferme. A slight breach of the regulations but I'm sure the stewards will turn a blind eye.

Hamilton cruises through the final sector and across the line to take his first victory since the German Grand Prix earlier this year. Fantastic and important win for him. Alonso takes second, Button third and Webber fourth. Massa is a long way down the road in fifth with Rosberg 1.7s off the Ferrari as they cross the line.

Schumacher is a further 23.6s behind in seventh, just 1.1s up on Sutil. The Mercedes has stopped on track, presumably to save enough fuel in the tank for an FIA sample. Di Resta and Kobayashi round off the points positions, ahead of Perez, Barrichello, Petrov, Maldonado, Alguersuari, Senna, Kovalainen, Trulli, Glock and Liuzzi.

Webber makes his pit stop as Hamilton starts his final lap. Webber comes out comfortably in fourth. Massa looks set to hold off Rosberg as long as he doesn't make any more errors.

Lap 54

Two laps remain as Hamilton leads by 7.8s from Alonso. Webber is due to pit at the end of this lap to hand Button third place and take on his mandatory set of mediums.

Lap 53

Alonso drops to 7.1s off Hamilton as he settled for a very impressive second place. Rosberg is giving Massa something to think about with the gap down to 2.7s.

Lap 52

Ricciardo is out of the race with what looks like a mechanical failure. The yellow flags are out but he's well off the racing line.

Lap 51

So the order appears to have sorted itsellf out with Webber set to drop to fourth when he makes his last-gasp pit stop. Sutil is currently 1.7s off Schumacher, which is a fantastic effort but it doesn't look like he'll be able to take that position.
