Lewis Hamilton has been crowned Formula 1 World Champion for the second time after winning today’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The highly anticipated grand finale in the United Arab Emirates saw title rival Nico Rosberg struggle to seventh place after losing engine power on the 24th lap.

Rosberg qualified on pole and looked to whittle down the 17 point gap in the double-points final race of the season, but it was ultimately who took the chequered flag with Hamilton finishing in to claim his second world title.

The 29 year-old Mercedes driver won the 2008 title in a McLaren car and finished the season in style with victory today with his 11th victory of the season.

“World champion, oh my god, ” Hamilton whooped into his radio, as he did donuts on the course.

“ You’re an absolute legend.” said England’s Prince Harry into the team’s radio after the checkered flag.

With his second world title, Hamilton joins the ranks of drivers like Alberto Ascari, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mika Hakkinen, and the still-active Fernando Alonso.
