Rosberg beats Hamilton to win Abu Dhabi GP

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Nico Rosberg completed a hat trick of victories to end the Formula One season when he won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday, while his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton was left frustrated by a tire strategy which he believed cost him a shot at winning.

Rosberg won by 8.2 seconds at the Yas Marina circuit to complete Mercedes' 12th one-two finish of the season, establishing a new F1 record.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was third, ahead of his teammate Sebastian Vettel, who drove impressively after starting 15th on the grid. Raikkonen's podium secured him fourth in the drivers' championship ahead of fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas.
