Congratulations to Nico Rosberg who won the 2016 F1 Drivers’ Title after a season long battle with team mate Lewis Hamilton, which culminated with a thrilling race in Abu Dhabi.
Mercedes dominated the headlines in 2016 but we may have seen the first signs that times are changing. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had an incredible season and has firmly staked his claim as a future superstar. Daniel Ricciardo has his own title aspirations and we could well see a ‘Lewis vs Nico’ style battle between these two drivers next year.
2016 was a year of retirements with Felipe Massa, Jenson Button & Nico Rosberg stepping down, along with McLaren chief Ron Dennis. All four have been a credit to Formula 1 and have brought pleasure to their millions of fans over the years. We wish them the very best in the future.
