bottas us, lewis hamilton, and sebastian vettel started and ended the race in that order. for drama, you had to look down the order. they could not finish in the points. daniel ricciardo could not either. a hydraulic issue costing him the race. carlos's they ended prematurely. but hulkenberg ended six. —— day. third place was enough for sebastian vettel in the title standings. it is an important win for me. again, congratulations to lewis hamilton and sebastian vettel. i will hopefully do better next year. i gave it everything every single lap. it is very hard to ove rta ke single lap. it is very hard to overtake there. i struggled a bit

they required in little more than an hour. the next test, a day—nighter in adelaide, begins on saturday. looking forward to that. well, some people are, anyway. that is all we have time for. thank you for watching. goodbye. hello once again. after a pretty chilly weekend quite widely across the british isles we will see a change of weather tonight, albeit only for a little while. it is thanks to an area of low pressure throws a great veil of cloud down the british isles. first thing on monday there will be a wet and windy start to be had across the south. not many of you will be scraping your cars first up. there will be other concerns, i suspect, if you are commuting across the southern counties of england and wales. the first part of monday, it will be really quite wet. even that little bit further north will have had rain overnight. quite windy as well. tricky conditions. a lot of surface water and spray. into the northern half of the british isles. persistent rain in the very far north of scotland. elsewhere, a supply of showers from the word go. les along by a north—north—westerly wind pushing these showers ever
further towards the south. they replace the rainband which quits the scene on the southern counties of england but will be a bother for the channel islands for a good part of the day. following on behind, not particularly cold air. not at that stage. probably the mildest of the days of the week. tuesday, increasingly cold as we move towards the middle part of the week. the low pressure moves further east. that opens the doors for the isobars to run north to south across all parts of the british isles. down the spine of the country, a gloriously sunny day. if you are fully exposed to that breeze, mainly from the northern and eastern perspective, you are going to see some showers across the high ground, not just in scotland, they will be wintry. single figure temperatures abound. wednesday, perhaps a subtle change in wind direction could draw the wintry showers a little further inland and push them further south, down through the lincolnshire wolds, maybe into the north of norfolk as well. down the spine of the country
there is still that bright weather to be had. on thursday, we may see an area of low pressure. that puts a squeeze on the isobars. it means more wind. a bitter wind at that. right down the eastern shores, particularly. look at that temperature, four, five, six. it will be cold with a biting wind, especially in the east. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm duncan golestani.
