Lewis Hamilton, who is chasing his second Formula One World Championship, needs at least a second-place finish to clinch this season's title. Hamilton currently has 334 points, 17 more than his Mercedes teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg.
With double the points (usually a winner gets 25 points for a victory) up for grabs in the final race of the season at Abu Dhabi this weekend, Hamilton would love to grab 50 points and lift the coveted trophy.
On the other hand, Rosberg (317 points) will be confident going into the race after pipping the Briton at the penultimate race in Brazil to keep his title hopes on track. The German will be aiming for victory in the hope Hamilton finishes third or lower.
