Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (SportsNetwork. Jordan 3 Clearance .com) - Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton captured his second Formula One world championship by winning Sundays Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, while his teammate and title rival, Nico Rosberg, finished 14th in the season-finale. Rosberg, who entered this race 17 points behind Hamilton, started on the pole, but Hamilton quickly pulled ahead of Rosberg for the lead heading into the first turn of the opening lap. It was a great start, probably the best Ive ever had, Hamilton said. While Hamilton had pulled away from the field, Rosberg experienced a problem with his ERS (Energy Recovery System) on lap 25, causing a loss of engine power. Rosberg gradually fell behind in the field and was lapped by Hamilton on the second-to-lap lap. Hamilton only relinquished the lead during his two pit stops. Felipe Massa from Williams chased down Hamilton in the closing laps, but Massa finished 2.5 seconds behind him. Woooooaaahh! World champion. I cant believe it. Thank you so much everyone, Hamilton radioed to his Mercedes team after he crossed the finish line in first. An emotional Hamilton then grabbed a British flag and waved it during his cool-down lap. At the same time, Britains Prince Harry, who was in attendance for this race, congratulated Hamilton over the team radio, saying, Well done, Lewis, youre an absolute legend. It was the 11th win for Hamilton this season. He also earned his 33rd career victory, allowing him to surpass Fernando Alonso for fifth on the all-time F1 race winners list. Hamilton concluded the season 67 points ahead of Rosberg (384-317). This race awarded double the amount of points for the first time in F1 history. Hamilton scored 50 for the win. His first F1 world championship occurred in 2008 when he drove for McLaren. He claimed the title by only one point over Massa, who drove for Ferrari at the time. Massa won the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix, but Hamiltons fifth- place finish in that race allowed him to clinch the title. I cant really explain how much this means to me, Hamilton said of his second world championship. This one means more than the first (title). It feels like its the first time. I feel so blessed. Hamilton became the fourth British driver to win multiple F1 world championships, joining Jackie Stewart (1969, 71 and 73), Jim Clark (1963 and 65) and Graham Hill (1962 and 68). Hamilton is also the 16th different driver with two or more titles in the sport. Throughout the season, there has been an intense rivalry between Hamilton and Rosberg, which at times reached the boiling point, particularly in Monaco and Belgium. After the conclusion of this 55-lap race at Yas Marina Circuit, Rosberg approached Hamilton to congratulate him for winning the race and the championship. It was the second time Hamilton won in Abu Dhabi. His first victory here came in 2011. Nico put on an incredible fight throughout the year, and he was a phenomenal competitor, Hamilton said. We met each other back in 1997, and we always said that it would be pretty amazing to race on the same team and fight for the world championship. He did an amazing job today. His car wasnt quick enough in the end, so he couldnt fight, but he was still graceful enough to come up to me, being very professional, and said, Fantastic. You drove very well. Rosberg concluded the season with five grand prix wins and 11 pole victories. Two weeks ago, he won the Brazilian GP to keep his title hopes alive. Im very disappointed with the ending, of course, but congratulations to Lewis, Rosberg said. Lewis deserves to be champion this year, but for me, it wasnt a nice ending. All in all, its been a great season for the team, and Im proud to be a part of that. Lewis was a little bit better of a driver this year, a tiny bit, so he deserves the win. Massas second-place run marked his best finish in a grand prix since October 2012 in Japan. This was his first season with Williams. It was an incredible race for us, Massa said. I did not expect to have that pace...I wanted so much for victory, but we were close. I hope this is the beginning for next year. Massas teammate, Valtteri Bottas, finished third, followed by Daniel Ricciardo from Red Bull and McLarens Jenson Button. Force India drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez placed sixth and seventh, respectively, while Sebastian Vettel, the four-time and outgoing champion, was eighth in his final race with Red Bull. Vettel is moving over to Ferrari for the 2015 season, replacing Alonso, who finished ninth. I think the last six years (with Red Bull) have been an incredible journey, Vettel said. Id like to thank Red Bull and the team for everything they did, and I will miss them. I feel ready for the next step. Alonsos teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, completed the top-10. This might have been Buttons last race in F1, as it is widely rumored that Alonso will replace him at McLaren for next season. Button, the 2009 world champion, has been competing in F1 since 2000.

The best free safety in the NFL is getting rewarded quite well. Thomas and the Seahawks reached agreement Monday on a $40 million, four-year contract extension with just over $27.7 million guaranteed, according to two people with knowledge of the agreement. They spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because there had been no announcement from the team. The agreement was first reported by NFL.com. Thomas, a two-time first-team All-Pro, could have gone into the 2014 season with free agency on the horizon. Instead, Seattle made sure to keep the most important cog of its defence through the 2018 season. Its the latest move in a strong off-season for the defending champions. While there were losses in free agency and difficult roster decisions with expensive veterans released, Seattle re-signed defensive end Michael Bennett before free agency began, then locked up coach Pete Carroll with an extension through 2016. The debate was whether Seattle could get a long-term deal done with either Thomas or cornerback Richard Sherman before either became a free agent after the 2014 season. Thomas deal is finished and the Seahawks can turn their attention toward trying to get a deal done with Sherman and solidifying three-fourths of the top secondary in the NFL for years to come. Strong safety Kam Chancellor is already signed through the 2017 season. Thomas was Seattles second first-round pick in the 2010 draft, the first with Carroll and general manager John Schneider leading the franchise. Its turned out to be one of the most important selections the team has made since starting a makeover with the duo in charge of moulding the Seahawks into a championship club. "Earl is as sserious a competitor as you could ever hope to be around. Air Jordan 3 Online Shop. He is in it, and hes on it and dialed in," Carroll said before the Super Bowl. Thomas was Seattles second-leading tackler last season and added five interceptions, but its what his presence allows the Seahawks to do defensively that underscores his value. His speed in coverage and recognition in the secondary are among the best in the game. Much of what Seattle wants to do defensively is predicated on having Thomas on the roster. At one point early in his career, Carroll had to threaten Thomas with benching because he was trying to do too much. Thomas was getting out of position and being undisciplined in his assignments. As he matured, those mistakes became harder to find. Thomas recognition of what opponents were trying to run became so good that he could play alone in the back of Seattles defence. Often this past season, the Seahawks were able to move Chancellor closer to the line of scrimmage and ask Thomas to patrol the back end by himself. He did that job at an elite level and earned his second straight All-Pro selection. "In this defence, I think me and Kam do a lot. Sometimes dirty work, sometimes a lot of game-changing plays," Thomas said during Super Bowl week. "Everybody on the defence understands that. Thats why this defence is so compatible with each other. Its selfless guys. "Were going to put everything on the line for each other. Love is the highest frequency we have and we understand that, and thats what its all about. When youre filled up with gratitude, its a genuine appreciation for everybody around you. Thats the way I love it." Thomas has 15 career interceptions in the regular season and two more in the playoffs. Thomas will still only be 29 years old when his new deal expires after the 2018 season.
