British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton won his second Formula 1 World Championship title after a victory in the 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Hamilton beat his nearest rival in the championship, Nico Rosberg. Nico unfortunately had a bad start at the Abu Dhabi race and was further slowed down by an ERS failure half way through, and with three laps to the finish Hamilton was almost a lap clear of his German team mate.
