Race Notes

Ricciardo and Vettel (Red Bull Racing) were excluded from qualifying, as it was determined that they used illegal front wings during the session. They were required to start the race from the pit-lane start after parc ferme changes.
Grosjean qualified P16, but received a 20-place grid penalty for power unit changes, and incurred an in-race drive-through penalty in lieu of undropped places.
Both the Caterham and Marussia teams withdrew from the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix citing financial difficulties. Caterham F1 Team launched a crowd-funding drive in an effort to raise sufficient funds to race at Yas Marina. The (unstated) intention being a hope that having cars on the grid would get the team into tenth place in the Constructors' Championship standings, above Marussia, and therefore make the team eligible to receive prize money for the season.
