Lewis Hamilton celebrated winning a second world drivers' title by declaring he has no desire to leave Mercedes and is keen "to push the team forward".

The British driver won his 11th race of the Formula 1 season when securing the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday to clinch his first drivers' crown since 2008 and deny team-mate Nico Rosberg any hope of a last-day shock.

The 29-year-old only joined the team in 2013 but said he still had plenty of campaigns left and described his title success as "just the beginning".

He told reporters: "I wanted to be part of something building and growing.

"I feel this is just the beginning. What this team has put together is something incredibly special."

He added: "We've got great people in their right positions and me and Nico will continue to push the team forward.

"As will the boss of Mercedes, who has been so committed and building the best engine. These guys know just as much as I do, it's been phenomenal this year.

"It's really important the steps we take moving forwards to continue improving and I 100% believe the team will do that."

Mercedes are now expected to look to tie Hamilton down to a new contract and team boss Toto Wolff suggested talks could take place imminently.

Team-mate Rosberg signed a new contract with Mercedes until at least the end of 2016 in May this year and Hamilton, who won the title by 67 points, said leaving was not on his agenda.

He said: "I definitely don't feel I am looking for a new challenge. We have a year to go, so there's no particular rush but this is my home and I'm very happy here."
