That man hug shocked Bernie.
Nico picking up Bernie
Does Nico get to Keep Bernie over the winter break like the school Goldfish?
How to scratch your back, Bernie style.
Ferrari finally showed some imagination on strategy - great reward for Vettel. Drive of the race?
He got DotD
MFW watching the last couple of laps
Lewis did all he could, really. He was practically perfect since the engine failure, but Nico did all he needed to do as well. Motorsport is cruel, and it has claimed another victim.
People getting mad at Lewis trying to win the championship by holding up his teammate just proves people will get mad at him for anything. It's nothing that any other past champion wouldn't do. Same thing would garner praise if it were someone like Prost who did so, yet Lewis is arrogant and despicable.
Grid girls look a bit rough on that podium
When they walk out of the door towards the podium, I hope Hamilton walks so slowly that Vettel bumps into the back of Rosberg...
Yup as I said outside of the title 20/21 poles and 19/21 wins is crazy, actually the most dominant of the three years.
For trying a last effort to make his team mate race for it if he wanted to gain the WDC for sure, or try to fend off those chasing. I don't get why some people dislike the guy so much that they're using this logic as a mask to push about their dislike. Just say it, "hey great job Rosberg, I can't stand Lewis, so glad you beat him!"
No one will fault you for that.
Tough break for Lewis, hasn't been a great season for him, did what he could although it was slightly questionable, he will be back!
If Lewis had tried to crash Rosberg out, then there would be every reason to be angry at him. Lewis had to try something to win the championship, and he did everything he could legitimately.
Come on guys. Lewis is clearly arrogant, selfish and putting his own interests above those of the team/never giving up and doing everything he possibly can to win the title.*
*Delete as applicable in accordance with which driver you hero worship.
Congratulations Nico Rosberg the new world champion!!!
Nothing to do with the race but everything after shows Hamilton has no class. He is of course gutted to lose but a shake of the hand costs nothing.
Congratulations, Nico. He showed he's champion material in his very first race, setting the fastest lap. For me, he really solidified that a few years where he could've won for Williams in Singapore two years in a row.
As a Hamilton fan, I'm disappointed but happy with the fight Hamilton put up right until the very last moments of the final race. Can't say there was anything wrong with his strategy. He was in the lead, the team already had the constructors championship in the bag and one of their drivers would win the championship regardless. As long as his disobedience didn't screw him up (like a certain Red Bull Racing Australia driver), he's all good.
Now bring on 2017!
And even then, it only had a fairly outside chance of working. Once Vettel had passed Rosberg, Lewis would have had no say on the battle for third.
It really is odd to bash him because unlike in the past with drivers holding others up with questionable tactics HAM didn't even have to defend once. It's not like he weaved across the track or did some last minutes blocks. He just drove slowly and ROS did nothing about it.
Exactly, driver's held in much higher regard by F1 fans in general have done far more questionable things when a title has been on the line.
He just did that.
In retrospect, the same mechanical-out (like Lewis' Engine Failure) happened to Rosberg 2 years ago.
So kind of a fair move of faith.
Great end to the championship. Bernie will probably mandate next season that the leading driver has to back up the field every race.........
It still feels like Lewis lost this title rather than Nico won it, but hey that's motor racing - he did all he needed to do.
He just shook hands twice with Nico, why are you guys trying so hard to validate dislike for a guy. You can dislike a guy without the front.
I'm so happy for Nico.
Just as I hit Post! Well done so.
@LMSCorvetteGT2 He did it after I posted.
Waiting for Vettel to go "You know who has the same amount of championships as you 2? This guy!"
Also, totally called this in May:
He Shook his hand in Parc ferme as well.
Hamilton doing that holding it in smile that people do when your dying inside
I'm happy to see Nico finally win even though I cheer for Hamilton usually.
I don't understand the hate either, especially when these paint drying sessions need all the help they can get to actually be interesting.
