Nico Rosberg made it for the first time

Rosberg clinched his first Formula 1 world championship in the same way he got himself in the position to do it - by doing exactly what he needed to do at the time.

 

The German has been a closed-off character this year - so much so, in fact, that he apologised to the media afterwards for it - but he has finally found a method, as well a set of circumstances, that has enabled him to take on Hamilton and beat him.
