ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) British driver Lewis Hamilton vows to race even faster next year when he defends his Formula One title.

Hamilton sealed his second F1 title in style on Sunday, winning the 11th race of his campaign at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to finally get the better of rival and teammate Nico Rosberg as Mercedes finished 1-2 in the drivers' championship.

Rosberg threatened to upstage Hamilton with double points on offer in the final race, but went out with a whimper as he crossed the line in 14th place - despite starting from pole position for the 11th time this season.
