Lewis Hamilton wins F1 world title
Lewis Hamilton clinched his second drivers' World Championship with a comfortable victory in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Hamilton, second in qualifying, took the lead at the start and controlled the race, as Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg suffered car trouble and finished 14th.
The 2008 champion became only the fourth Briton to win two world titles.
Michael Schumacher is the all-time record holder with seven, while the most successful current driver is Sebastian Vettel on four. Another contemporary, Fernando Alonso, is also on two.
