Lewis Hamilton won the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to secure his second Drivers' Championship after holding off the challenge of his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

After four years of domination from Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel, it was Mercedes who emerged as the power force that would go on to dominate the 2014 season, with Hamilton and Rosberg regularly competing for race wins.

Williams posed the biggest threat to them towards the end of the season, but it was the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo who was the only man to disrupt Mercedes' dominance as he won three grand prix's in just his forst year with the team after serving his apprenticeship with Toro Rosso.

Past champions Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and Kimi Raikkonen didn't enjoy the best of season's, but a number of young guns emerged as potential world champions of the future in the likes of Valterri Bottas, Kevin Magnussen and Daniil Kvyat.

So how did each driver rate now that the season is over?
