Lewis Hamilton showed he was not going to relinquish his world title without a fight when beating Nico Rosberg in opening practice for the season-closing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Friday.

The defending three-time world champion clocked a best lap of one minute and 40.861 seconds to outpace the 31-year-old German by 0.079sec.

Rosberg leads Hamilton by 12 points in the 2016 drivers championship and only needs to finish on the podium to claim his first title.

Hamilton must win and Rosberg finish out of the top three to retain his crown.

Away from the heat of the competition though, Sport360 looks back at some of the best posts on Instagram.

Moments captured on the social media platform included Nico Rosberg flinging autographs into the crowd and a lucky young fan getting his picture taken with Formula One legend Niki Lauda.
