Lewis Hamilton clinched his second drivers’ world championship with a comfortable victory in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The 2008 champion became only the fourth Briton to win two world titles.
Hamilton, second in qualifying, took the lead at the start and controlled the race, as Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg suffered car trouble and finished 14th.
“This is the greatest day of my life,” the 29 year-old said.
“2008 was a great year in my life. The feeling I have now is way, way past that. The greatest feeling ever.”
Hamilton moves level with Britons Jim Clark and Graham Hill on two titles, and is one behind Sir Jackie Stewart.
