Another exhilarating season of Formula One has now come to an end, and as always it has not failed to disappoint.

A highly publicised fallout with Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg added to the excitement of the season, the German finishing in second place to complete a clean sweep for the manufacturer, who also won the Constructors’ Championship.
Recording his seventh victory of the season, Lewis Hamilton dominated the Italian Grand Prix to put himself 53 points ahead of his teammate Nico Rosberg in the Drivers’ Championship after the German was forced to pull out on the race due to engine failure with three laps to go.

After one of the most compelling title races in years, Lewis Hamilton emerged victorious over his Mercedes-Benz teammate, Nico Rosberg, at the Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi.

As the teams and drivers descend upon Interlagos for the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, there is still all to play for in the Drivers’ Championship and Johnny Herbert is right in the thick of it, analysing developments for the Sky F1 HD channel. Despite Lewis Hamilton’s dominance this season, with ten wins to Rosberg’s four and having won the last five races at a canter, his German teammate has minimised the points difference with consistent second placed finishes and can still take the title.
