Rosberg wins Formula One Championship

November 28, 2016

German driver Nico Rosberg has been crowned the 2016 Formula One champion.

His second place finish at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday was enough to claim the top spot.

Defending champion Lewis Hamilton won the race from pole position for his 53rd GP win.

Rosberg was 12 points ahead of his teammate coming into the title showdown and only needed to finish third, even if Hamilton won.

Rosberg had been runner up twice and now matches his father who won the title in 1982.
