Nico Rosberg is 2016 Formula One champion

Nico Rosberg is now a champion in his own right after clinching his first title on Sunday to match his father’s achievement from 1982.

”Two Rosbergs are world champions … if I’ve got my statistics right,” Nico Rosberg joked moments after clinching the title. Graham Hill (1962, 1968) and Damon Hill (1996) are the only other father and son to have won the title.


Rosberg’s second place at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was enough to wrestle the title away from Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton and also prevented his archrival from clinching his third straight and fourth overall. Rosberg ended on 385 points to Hamilton’s 380.
