Rosberg, who is leading the title race now has his margin cut to 12. He came second in Sao Paulo, while Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, was third.

Rosberg’s championship lead heading into the final round is 12 points over Hamilton – if he finishes third in Abu Dhabi he is champion, even if his team mate wins.

The race in Abu Dhabi will take place between 25 and 27 November.
