WRITE TO US Motorsport News Autosport Media UK Ltd Bridge House, 69 London Road, Twickenham TW1 3SP Mercedes man chose his path in Abu Dhabi - and stuck to it
Firstly, congratulations to Nico Rosberg on holding his nerve to claim his maiden F1 world championship in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. It was tense right up to the finish, and his determination to land the crown after having been so close in the past was clear.
Despite his performance, the talking point was the actions of his team-mate and outgoing champion Lewis Hamilton. The Brit backed up Rosberg into the chasing pack behind and there was uproar. Why was he using such underhand tactics, several people asked. What nonsense.
Hamilton did not break any rules. Hamilton did not put anyone in danger. Hamilton knew that Mercedes had the constructors title safely locked away. It was a one-on-one fight between Lewis and Nico, and Hamilton tried every angle he could to make the championship destiny turn in his favour. What is wrong with that?
Racing drivers hate coming second, and it is that passion and desire that marks out the average ones from the very special ones. And, despite what onlookers might be saying or thinking, Hamilton is one of that special breed. Matt James, Editor
