Race Report: Lewis Hamilton – 2015 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Nico Rosberg beat 2015 world champion Lewis Hamilton at the Abu Dhabi GP on Sunday to finished the F1 season with a third consecutive victory.

Rosberg won by 8.2 seconds at the Yas Marina circuit to complete Mercedes’ 12th one-two finish of the season, set up a new F1 record.

Hamilton tried a different strategy to his team-mate with pole-sitter Rosberg controlling the race at the Yas Marina Circuit. But Rosberg ultimately made to a hat-trick of successive victories for the first time in his grand prix career.

“I just did what I was told pretty much. I tried as hard as I could in the first stint. I tried to keep a relatively decent gap to Nico, looking after the tyres, but both fronts went off quite early and Nico was able to pull away” Hamilton told Sky Sports F1

“The second stint I was quicker and getting close and then we made the tyres last longer, but then after that it was down to the team whether we went to the option or the other tyre. I’m not sure which one was better, but the prime tyre was quite good.

“I’m not sure whether or not I could have taken it to the end. Some part of me wishes I just gave it a go.

“The engine modes were going up and down throughout the race. I’m not really sure why, but I’ll ask when I get back to the team.”
