A dream season for British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has ended with a victory in the final race of the season and the World Championship. Despite not sleeping the night before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Hamilton finished first in a race he only needed to finish first or second in to clinch the title, his second. Hamilton also won the F1 title in 2008. Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg started the day on the pole and just 17 points back of Hamilton but he never recovered from a poor start.

Overall, Hamilton finished the season with 384 points, with Rosberg notching 317 and Daniel Ricciardo 238 to finish third.

Ko played the 18th hole five times on Sunday and made par each time. The last par was worth $1.5 million, including the bonus and the $500 payoff for the tournament win.
