What about a tie?:

If Hamil­ton fin­ished fourth in Abu Dhabi and Ros­berg failed to score the pair would tie on 367 points, but Ros­berg would still take the ti­tle on count back thanks to his greater num­ber of sec­ond places (four to Hamil­ton’s three).

If Hamil­ton was sec­ond and Ros­berg sev­enth the two would tie on 373pts, but that would hand Hamil­ton the ti­tle on count­back due to his greater num­ber of third places (four to Ros­berg’s two)

Hamil­ton 14%

Ros­berg 86%
