In the past, Lewis Hamilton has been accused of taking his foot off the gas after he’s won the title – but this year has been different and in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he had the bit between his teeth, securing one of his most dominant victories of 2019 and admitting he would love to “keep going” this season …
Hamilton’s 84th career win saw him finishing around 17 seconds clear of Max Verstappen. The Red Bull driver had started from second place behind Hamilton.
“I wasn’t expecting to have the pace advantage to that extent,” Hamilton said.

After Hamilton pulled clear from pole, he was five seconds ahead within 10 laps and Verstappen never got remotely close to catching his Mercedes in a season-finale resembling more of a coronation procession for the six-time Formula One champion.
“I do wish we had some battles,” Hamilton said to Verstappen, sitting alongside him in the post-race news conference.
“You could have slowed down,” Verstappen joked, after his ninth podium of the season saw him consolidate third place in the standings behind the Mercedes pair of Valtteri Bottas and Hamilton.
Although Verstappen had reliability issues approaching the midway point of the 55-lap race, the 22-year-old Dutchman conceded it had little impact on who won.
“We drove around the problem,” he said. “But it wouldn’t have made any difference today (in terms) of winning the race.”
Hamilton is now just seven wins behind seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of 91, and could realistically overtake the F1 great next season.

After clinching a record-extending 88th career pole, Hamilton won on the Yas Marina circuit for the fifth time in his career- four with Mercedes and once when driving for McLaren in 2011.
This was the opposite of the season-ending thriller in 2016, when former Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg beat Hamilton to the title in dramatic fashion.
The fans watching as the sky darkened and the floodlights flickered on saw no overtaking, except for Verstappen’s clean move on Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari on Lap 33. It was typical Verstappen, already a young master at overtaking and arguably the best in F1.
Leclerc finished third for a 10th podium in a strong first season with Ferrari, which included an F1-leading seven poles - two more than Hamilton and Bottas - and two wins.
However, the 22-year-old Leclerc was summoned for a post-race investigation because there was a difference between the amount of fuel in the car declared by the team and the amount inside the car.
“To be honest I’ve got no idea and no details (on the issue),” Leclerc said.
He only just held off Bottas, who climbed 16 places to fourth after starting last.
Hamilton fuels Ferrari move speculation
Lewis Hamilton has admitted he's flattered by Ferrari's interest, refusing to shut down a move to the Italian giants.Ferrari have ramped up their pursuit of Hamilton at the season-concluding race in Abu Dhabi by publicly wooing Britain's six-time world champion.

Sebastian Vettel started fourth and finished fifth in a disappointing end to a season where the four-time F1 champion won only once - in Singapore - out of 21 races.
After Hamilton’s clean getaway, Verstappen was overtaken by Leclerc and just held off Vettel on the first lap, which saw Pierre Gasly’s Toro Rosso sandwiched between both Racing Point cars and forced to pit for a new front wing.
Ferrari pitted both drivers for new tires on the 13th lap, but while Leclerc’s tire switch was relatively good, Vettel’s took several seconds too long because the mechanics struggled to fit his front left tire on.
It was the latest basic mistake from Ferrari in yet another season marred by errors following similar blunders in the past two seasons.
Ferrari replaced Maurizio Arrivabene with Mattia Binotto as team principal, but Binotto has not managed to stem the flow of mistakes.
Leclerc finished fourth in the standings and Vettel was a lowly fifth.
"We didn't have the year we were hoping for, full stop. The reasons are clear, the lessons are clear and it's up to us to take them on board,” said Vettel. “As a team we must perform stronger, and as an individual I can do better.”
Although dull, Sunday’s race underlined the superiority shown by Hamilton for much of the year.
When he pitted about halfway through the race, such was his comfort zone that he still came out six seconds clear of Leclerc, while an anxious Verstappen complained about engine, braking and throttle issues.
Still, the audacious Dutchman found some extra speed to overtake Leclerc and assuredly held the Monegasque driver off as he tried to overtake him back down the right.
Ferrari pitted both drivers simultaneously again on Lap 39, and this time the tire changes were both fairly smooth.
Leclerc finished a massive 43 seconds behind Hamilton but had built up just enough of a lead to hold off Bottas by .9 seconds.
“Valtteri was very quick towards the end,” Leclerc said. “I was pretty worried at one point.”
