Lewis Hamilton produced yet another superb performance in Brazil to win his third consecutive grand prix and take the drivers championship title race right down to the wire which will be decided on the last Grand Prix of the season in Abu Dhabi. However Rosberg crawled his way to second place and he will be delighted with the result which keeps in ahead of Lewis Hamilton with 12 points lead.
It was a terrible race for both drivers and fans alike with late start due to rain and wet conditions followed by three red flags during what turned out to be 5 hour race. Several times safety car was introduced and we did not have standing start which kind of helped Hamilton.
This is how the championship table looks after 20 races in the season. Both Hamilton and Rosberg has won 9 races apiece but 12 points seperating the two means even if Rosberg finish second in Abu Dhabi he will win the F1 title by just 2 points regardless of Hamilton results.
Both Hamilton and Rosberg started at the front grid and Hamilton looked comfortable with all the restarts and stops leading all the way while Rosberg came close to crashing in his dual with Verstappen who himself secured third place on the podium.
