Nico Rosberg hits hat-trick with Abu Dhabi GP win

Snapshot: Claiming sixth win this year, Nico finished the 2015 season with 322 points, 59 points behind Hamilton's 381 points.

It would have been a definite championship win for Nico Rosberg had he been in such form at the first half of the 2015 F1 season! Yes, that's all what we can say after the German won his third race in succession, beating his team mate and current champion Lewis Hamilton at the Yas Marina circuit during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Claiming sixth win this year, Nico finished the 2015 season with 322 points, 59 points behind Hamilton's 381 points. Just so you know, both the drivers race for team Mercedes which also won the constructors' title for second consecutive year. Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen came third, claiming his  third podium of the season, while his team mate and four time world champion Sebastian Vettel finishing an incredible fourth after starting the race from the 15th position on the grid.

Force India’s Sergio Perez finished fifth after he held off Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo for long, who finished sixth. Force India's other driver, Nico Hulkenberg finished seventh ahead of Williams’ Felipe Massa on eighth spot and Lotus’s Romain Grosjean at the ninth. Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat finished tenth hence completing the top ten drivers at the last race of the 2015 season.

World Champion Lewis Hamilton said, "Well, firstly it's been an amazing - an amazing - year, and happy 44th UAE National Day. So happy to be here and celebrating it with the UAE, they've done an amazing job for this show - and what a great crowd we've had today. No man, it's been a good year. I'm happy. I'm happy it's over, for sure. So now we can really enjoy."

"I really have to take my hat off to this team who once again did an amazing job in building this car. The pitstops today, the performance through the whole year, they've surpassed their own expectations, our expectations, and so we've truly shown that Mercedes-Benz is the best team in the world. I'm proud to be a part of it", he further added.
