After that will be a short spurt to Christmas, but it is clear there is no love lost or holiday cheer between Nico Rosberg, who completed a hat-trick of wins on Sunday, and his champion teammate Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis and Nico were the recipients of a tricky question at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix press conference. And their awkward response was priceless.
A reporter asked if the pair would get each other a Christmas present. The awkward silence is immediate and almost palpable, as the pair politely smiles.
They have a long history of being less than friendly despite being teammates, and the question clearly caught them off-guard.
Rosberg looks bemused, and takes a moment to respond, his eyes darting around, searching for a response. “Hmm, maybe a Christmas card” before awkwardly smiling again and going silent.
The reporter puts the same question to Hamilton, who also looks surprised.
His answer differs slightly, saying: “I don’t think we’ve ever done either so there’s no reason to change.”
