Nico Rosberg has won the last two Brazilian Grands Prix and, with Formula One descending on Sao Paulo again this weekend, he can wrap up his first world championship with a victory.

Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, has never won in Brazil, although he did clinch his first title at the Interlagos circuit in dramatic fashion back in 2008. 

The battle between the Mercedes team-mates has swung back and forth all year, and Hamilton has dominated recently, winning convincingly in the United States and Mexico. But even wins in Brazil and the final race, in Abu Dhabi, will not be enough if Rosberg can manage at least a second- and third-place finish in the last two races.

In that scenario, Hamilton would actually finish the season with more victories than Rosberg—10 to 9—but would lose the title. It would sort of be F1's equivalent of Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote but losing the U.S. presidential election.

The last time the world champion scored fewer victories than the runner-up was back in that 2008 season, when Felipe Massa won six races to Hamilton's five.

And speaking of Massa, this will be his final race in front of his home crowd, as he is retiring at the end of the season. Williams announced last week that Lance Stroll, an 18-year-old Canadian and the recently crowned Formula Three champion, will replace the Brazilian in 2017.

No doubt it will be an emotional weekend for both Massa and his fans in the crowd at Interlagos.
