The Formula One drivers championship is still officially up for grabs at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this Sunday. Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are still vying for the title, with the former holding a commanding 12-point lead.

However, Hamilton has already made it clear Rosberg won't have things all his own way on the Yas Marina Circuit. The Englishman has so far paced his team-mate and professional rival in both practice sessions, per the F1 official site.

Other news from the event concerns Jenson Button's imminent retirement. The McLaren-Honda man will call it quits after the season's final race, according to BBC Sport.

Date: Sunday, November 27

Time: 1 p.m. (GMT) / 8 a.m. (ET)

TV Info: Sky Sports F1. Channel 4 (free-to-air). NBCSN.

Live Stream: Sky Go. NBC Sports App.

 

Drivers It's all about Rosberg and Hamilton's head-to-head showdown. A 25-point maximum will be the reward for the winner, enough to guarantee the title for Rosberg.

Of course, it's just one permutation capable of deciding the championship. For instance, Rosberg can finish second or third and still clinch the title.

If Hamilton is third, Rosberg needs to be eighth or better.

If Hamilton is fourth, Rosberg is champion no matter where he finishes. A non-score for Rosberg would leave them tied on points, but the German would take the title based on having more second places (four to three).

It means the odds are...
