2016 Formula One final title standings

    Story highlights

    • Lewis Hamilton wins Abu Dhabi GP
    • Nico Rosberg finishes second to clinch world title
    • Rosberg emulates father Keke who won '82 world title

    (CNN)Defending champion Lewis Hamilton did all he could to deny his Mercedes teammate in Abu Dhabi in the final race of the season but it was to no avail.

    Hamilton led from start to finish, but, as so often this year, his teammate wasn't far behind.
      In finishing second, Rosberg did enough to clinch his first world drivers' title to beat Hamilton by a slender five-point margin in the end.
      Sebastian Vettel's third place finish guaranteed fourth place in the final drivers' standings with Max Verstappen having to settle for fifth.
      In the constructors' race, Force India confirmed fourth place -- its highest-ever finish since joining the sport in 2008.
