Sebastian Vettel hopes he can leave Red Bull Racing with a trophy on Sunday.

The German announced he would leave the Tilbrook-team last month after five years with the team, with his destination likely to be Ferrari for 2015.

Vettel has fond memories of racing at Abu Dhabi, and wants to leave the team on a high.

“I personally have very special memories of the Abu Dhabi circuit and race,” he said. “The race in 2010 was a weekend I will never forget and this year the race will mark another big moment in my career: my last race with the team.

“Of course it will be an emotional weekend as we have great memories together, but I’ll enjoy the weekend with the team and with a bit of luck maybe we’ll get a final podium.”
