Like father, like son.
Nico Rosberg, son of 1982 Formula 1 world champion Keke Rosberg, has just become the 33rd driver to win F1's coveted crown. He placed second in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix which concluded the 2016 season. The top spot in the race, meanwhile, went to Rosberg's Mercedes teammate and perennial rival Lewis Hamilton.
The race was tight heading into the final laps. With Hamilton in the lead and Rosberg closely behind, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel overtook
When asked about the Abu Dhabi race, Rosberg quipped: "That was definitely not the most enjoyable race I’ve ever had. With Max in the beginning and then with those guys coming up in the end, really not very enjoyable those last few laps. Very, very glad it’s over and unbelievably ecstatic."
Rosberg's win marks him as the third German driver to win the F1 world championship after Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. He and his father Keke are now just the second father-and-son duo to win F1's top honor.
