His main rival in the overall standings, and teammate Lewis Hamilton took the lead in the race, but did not break away from the Germans, as it was disadvantageous to Nico finished in second place.
Lewis pushed Rosberg to the pilots Ferrari and Red Bull Racing that they got a chance to attack the leader of the standings. However, Rosberg successfully reached the finish line in second, which allowed him to win the title.
“At that moment I did not know what the mind of my dear friend [Hamilton], – quotes Rosberg Marca. – He was driving her grandmother, but it was a smart move: he slowed down, but not so much – I could not overtake him.
During the race in Abu Dhabi in my head I triple lost the title. Especially difficult was the moment when my engineer told me to overtake Verstappen. I would not want to hear this, because I know how difficult it is to get around. It was probably one of the most intense moments in my career.”
