areppim chart and statistics of 2016 formula 1 drivers standings. With a 12-point lead and the need just to follow Hamilton home again if the Silver Arrows continue their one-two domination, Rosberg appears a more likely champion. Rosberg leads the overall standings with 367 points, to Hamilton's 355, Daniel Ricciardo's 246, Sebastian Vettel's 197, Max Verstappen's 192, and Kimi Räikkönen's 178.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton's victory in Abu Dhabi, the 53rd of his F1 career and his 10th in 2016, one more than his rival and 2016 champion Nico Rosberg, did not suffice to win him the champion's title. At the end of the season he finished with a meager, but heavy 5-point gap to Nico Rosberg, who leads the overall standings with 385 points, to Hamilton's 380, Daniel Ricciardo's 256, Sebastian Vettel's 212, Max Verstappen's 204, and Kimi Räikkönen's 186.
