Nico Rosberg is the 2016 Formula 1 World Champion. It doesn’t sound right, does it? It all came down to the last race in Abu Dhabi where, Hamilton had to win the race with his team-mate off the podium to win the title. Hamilton tried his best by backing up the pack (and apparently is under investigation by Mercedes and might either face a ban for the 2017 season or the sack for ignoring team orders) but it wasn’t enough. Rosberg finished in 2nd place to take his maiden World Championship. A word of warning, this post will focus on Mercedes a lot. I do talk about the other teams towards the end.
