Lewis Hamilton kept up his end of the bargain by winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but the victory wasn't enough to overturn a 12 point deficit as his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg was crowned a World Champion for the very first time in his career, becoming the first racer ever to take 206 races to achieve such a feat.

Hamilton and Rosberg both made excellent starts to the race and escaped the attentions of the chasing pack, but an interesting race strategy adopted by Max Verstappen allowed the young Dutchman to move ahead of Rosberg after the latter pitted.

Rosberg HamiltonA 12th Silver Arrows front row lockout of the season left Lewis Hamilton in pole position for the 10th time this campaign and the 59th time in his career as the reigning world champion continues to chase Championship leader and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg for the world title. Hamilton's lap time of 1:18.704 at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez puts the Briton in Pole Position heading into tomorrow's Mexican Grand Prix.

Rosberg, who leads Hamilton by 26 points, narrowly squeezed into the front row of the grid, managing to bunt the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo to the second row thanks to a final lap of 1:18.958 in Q3. The German, who is chasing a first ever Drivers' Championship title, struggled for form for the better part of the qualifying session and looked destined to leave Hamilton with a significant advantage heading into Sunday's race.

Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton today his first ever Pole Position at the Circuit of the Americas, his ninth of the 2016 season so far and the 58th of his career to relegate his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to second place in yet another front row lock out for the Silver Arrows - the 11th time that has happened this season.

Rosberg's time of 1:35.215 was not good enough to get the better of Hamilton, who set a scorching lap time of 1:34.999 in warm conditions at Austin, Texas.

Nico Rosberg edged closer towards winning his first ever Drivers' Championship, while Mercedes wrapped up the Constructors' crown for the third year running as the Silver Arrows recorded a 1-3 finish at the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka. Rosberg now leads his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton by 33 points with 4 races left in the season, and can actually afford to finish second to Hamilton in each of the remaining races and would still win the crown.

Rosberg, starting from Pole Position for the third year in succession, was third time lucky in Japan, winning the race for the first time in his career with an untroubled drive from start to finish, easing his way into the lead in the first corner and cruising to victory in the 53 laps that followed to capture his 9th win of the season and 23rd overall.

Red Bull's Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo on Sunday won the Malaysian Grand Prix, the 16th round of the Formula One World Championship, thanks in large part to an engine failure for Mercedes' British driver Lewis Hamilton, who did himself few favours after, launching into a massive tirade against his own team.

Ricciardo's Dutch teammate Max Verstappen finished in second place and Mercedes' German Nico Rosberg came in the third spot, to crucially extend his lead in the Drivers' Championship to 23 points with 5 races to go this season.

Nico Rosberg produced a wire to wire victory at the Singapore Grand Prix to re-take over the lead of the Formula One Drivers' Championship from his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, who finished third. Rosberg's win was his third straight after the summer break in what has been an incredible season of momentum swings from one Mercedes star to the other.

Rosberg had to battle hard to stay ahead of Red Bull's Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo who charged hard in the last few laps to come in second, just 0.488 seconds behind the German, whose decision to stay out on wearing tyres was justified in the end. Hamilton was third, 8.038 seconds behind as the Briton fell eight points behind Rosberg in the drivers' standings.
