It's fair to say that Nico Rosberg was in fine spirits after winning the Formula One world championship.
Rosberg, 31, needed a top three finish in Sunday's final race of the season in Abu Dhabi and he duly delivered.
It was Rosberg's Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton who claimed the win but second place was enough for the German driver to claim the prestigious honour.
Unsurprisingly, there was a frantic end to the race as Hamilton ignored team orders and endeavored to back Rosberg into the cars behind.
Hamilton was instructed to quicken up by Mercedes but instead opted to play mind games with his teammate by staying at a steady pace.
This allowed the duo of Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel a route back into the race, but Rosberg held on to secure his place in the top three.
Rosberg certainly proved himself to be a worthy winner and, in the aftermath of the contest, enjoyed a fine embrace with Bernie Ecclestone.
As you can see below, Rosberg opted to deliver what can only be described as a bear hug to Ecclestone.
See it here:
Sebastian Vettel hit out at Hamilton following the race, claiming that his rival was playing 'dirty tricks'.
"It was a tricky situation at the end with Lewis playing dirty tricks," Vettel said to his team, as per BBC Sport.
"It was tough out there," he said. "I didn't want to be an issue. But at the end I was thinking maybe to try to pass both of them but it didn't work out."
