Nico Rosberg won his first Formula 1 world title despite Lewis Hamilton disobeying Mercedes orders not to back his team-mate into rivals.

Hamilton won the Abu Dhabi GP driving slowly in an attempt to bring other drivers into the battle, knowing he needed Rosberg to finish below third.


Hamilton was repeatedly told to speed up but told the team: “Let us race.”

Rosberg came under pressure from Sebastian Vettel but held off the Ferrari driver to finish second.
