L ewis Hamilton should be concerned. If Nico Rosberg can save his form over the winter, he faces a hot dance in the internal Mercedes duel in 2016. Since he has been world champion, he has not made a trick against his teammate. Rosberg's winning streak is slowly getting scary. Hamilton looks for explanations. Some call it excuses.

In Abu Dhabi, the setup was to blame. In order not to expose himself to the accusation that Hamilton should not beat Rosberg, the champion was allowed to use a different tactic this time. Which didn't help either. In the end, he was too slow to implement them. With the continuation of his winning streak, Rosberg earned the grade 10 for the third time. And Hamilton only got the grade 8.

Vettel pays for Failure of the team

Sebastian Vettel, the scenario looks familiar. Also in 2012 and 2014 he started from far behind in Abu Dhabi. Once he was third, once eighth. This time, thanks to good speed and alternative tactics, it was enough to finish fourth. The error in practice happened to the race engineer. So Vettel deserved the grade 9.

Nico H├╝lkenberg ran through the paddock with a long face after the race. After having his colleague Sergio Perez under control in Mexico and Brazil, he finished two places behind the Mexican in Abu Dhabi. And has to put up with grade 7 for it. Two grades worse than Perez.
