Abu Dhabi GP: Nico Rosberg says Lewis Hamilton deserved title

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg says he is "very disappointed" to have lost the drivers' title but believes team-mate Lewis Hamilton "deserved to win" the 2014 F1 World Championship.

The German's title bid was effectively ended by the failure of his hybrid system as Hamilton clinched his second drivers' world championship with a comfortable victory in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Rosberg, who finished 67 points behind Hamilton in second, says their season-long battle has been "very intense" at times but has enjoyed the "great battle" with his Mercedes team-mate.
