Lewis Hamilton ends season on high

By Adeshina Michael

Lewis Hamilton has finished the season on a high note, as he won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to clinch his fifth World Championship.

The championship marks his 11th victory of the year, which he dominated with a well controlled drive.

Hamilton performed ‘doughnut’ spins after crossing the line, before he and former title rival Sebastian Vettel flanked the retiring two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, and all three performed more doughnuts on the start-finish straight.

Hamilton and Vettel then each shared and embraced ¬†Alonso, demonstrating their respect for each other’s abilities.

The three drivers hold 11 of some of the most recent World Championships won in a golden era for driving talent in the sport.

Vettel took second after Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas faded to fifth, which means the Finn ends the season without a victory with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo took third and fourth.
