Lewis Hamiltion will be looking to take a giant step closer to the Formula One World Title, as he carries his 24 point lead over teammate Nico Rosberg into the penultimate race of the season.
After Lewis Hamilton’s triumph in the United States last weekend, Brazil represents Nico Rosberg’s last opportunity to close the gap to his Mercedes team mate before the pair head for Abu Dhabi – where double points are on offer – and the conclusion of their dramatic 2014 title fight.
It will not decide the championship, but the Interlagos track will determine which of Hamilton or Rosberg goes into the season finale with the points advantage. At this stage of the season, one mistake or slip could produce a crucial shift in momentum.
Even if Hamilton wins and Rosberg fails to break the top ten, the gap would be 49 points – meaning Rosberg will have a mathematical chance of denying Hamilton at the 11th hour no matter how the cards fall on Sunday. But reverse the situation, and he would suddenly be back leading the championship by just a solitary point.
Rosberg will be on pole, after edging Hamilton in qualifying on Saturday afternoon by the narrowest of margins, but Hamilton knows that a second place finish will give him a useful 17 point lead heading into the final weekend.
