NICO ROSBERG KEEPS COOL UNDER PRESSURE TO WIN HIS FIRST FORMULA 1 TITLE

With Lewis Hamilton purposefully slowing him down, two other drivers hard on his tail and the title on the line, German driver Nico Rosberg held his nerve to win the Formula One championship for the first time on Sunday.

Rosberg finished second at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix behind defending champion Lewis Hamilton, who won the race from pole position for his 53rd GP win. But Rosberg was 12 points ahead of his Mercedes teammate coming into the title showdown and only needed to finish no lower than third if Hamilton won.

In the end, it felt like the most difficult second place of his career.

“It was so intense, the race, so tough,” said Rosberg, who finished runner-up to Hamilton in the past two years.

Rosberg repeatedly wiped his face and lowered his head several times in the post-race news conference, appearing emotionally exhausted as he tilted back into his chair and rubbed his eyes.
