[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ewis Hamilton has postponed Mercedes team mate’s Nico Rosberg possible title championship to the last race in Abu Dhabi, after winning Sunday’s Formula 1 Grande Premio do Brasil 2016, despite the Sao Paulo storms.
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.
