      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.

      Hamilton controlled the race from the front but was under instruction from Mercedes management not to try any strategic games to delay Rosberg.

      However, he disregarded message after message to speed up and prevent Vettel and Red Bull's Max Verstappen from closing on Rosberg.

      Congrats to Nico! I'm a Hamilton supporter, but I like Rosberg too, and I do think he's driven very well this year. Besides, it's nice to see someone different winning :p .

      Hamilton's desperate ploy to try and win the championship in the last few laps was entertaining to watch - but, given that it was pretty under-handed, I'm quite glad it didn't succeed!
