NICO ROSBERG (caricature) can clinch his first Formula One world championship in the penultimate race of the season on Sunday in Brazil as he leads Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton by 19 points.
A victory is worth 25 points, second place 18, and points are distributed down to 10th place – third 15, fourth 12, fifth 10, sixth 8, seventh 6, eighth 4, ninth 2, tenth 1.

Lorena Ochoa Invitational, the last event before the Tour Championship. The 19-year-old seeks her third title of the year at the 6,804-yard Club de Golf Mexico layout, having won her first major title at the Women’s PGA Championship last June and added her second consecutive Portland Classic crown three weeks later.
The world No. 7 suffered her worst finish of the year two weeks ago in Malaysia, sharing 63rd, and skipped last week’s event in Japan, only her second missed tournament of the year, to prepare for her Mexico trip.

Rosberg would lead by 25 points, and even if he gets no points at the season-ender in Abu Dhabi while Hamilton wins he would snatch the trophy on countback: both on nine wins in this scenario and Rosberg 4-3 ahead in second-place finishes… he finishes third (364) and Hamilton no better than sixth (338) – advantage 26 points he finishes fourth (361) and Hamilton no better than eighth (334) – advantage 27 points he finishes fifth (359) and Hamilton no better than ninth (332) – advantage 27 points he finishes sixth (357) and Hamilton no better than 10th – advantage 26 points. There are other scenarios in which Rosberg could be 25 points ahead if he comes fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh but on each occasion Hamilton could take the title in Abu Dhabi, by winning there with Rosberg getting no points. In this case Hamilton would win on countback based on third-place finishes (4-2) after a tie for wins (9-9) and secondplace results (3-3). – dpa
