Five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton signed off on the Formula One season in style and a cloud of tire smoke Sunday after a pole-to-flag victory in Abu Dhabi, his 11th win of the campaign. Ferrari's overall runner-up Sebastian Vettel finished second, and also set the fastest lap, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen third in a race that also saw a rare sprinkling of desert rain.Hamilton, Vettel and the Spaniard three great champions spun their cars in a cloud of smoke at the end of their slowing down lap, before stepping out for hugs and words of mutual respect.Compatriot Kimi Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion, retired seven laps into his final race with Ferrari as his car cruised to a halt on the pit straight, triggering a virtual safety car and Hamilton's early stop.
