GP Week : Issue 233
Victory for Nico Rosberg in Brazil was enough to ensure the Mercedes team will end the season with its drivers first and second in the drivers' championship. Sitting second heading into the weekend, Rosberg was still mathematically within catching distance of Sebastian Vettel, whose task was made ever more difficult after crashing out in Mexico last time out. The pair were split by 21 points heading into the weekend, meaning Rosberg needed to outscore Vettel by just four points to solidify his runners-up spot. Rosberg is now just 20 points off his tally from 2014, which saw him take the championship to the wire with teammate Lewis Hamilton in Abu Dhabi. Hamilton is also just 21 points off his 2014 total mean that, despite being the most dominant car on the grid this season and having wrapped up the constructors' championship four races ago, 2015 will see the team score less points. Also in Brazil, Force India confirmed its best ever championship position with fifth place. Now 44 points clear of Lotus in sixth place even if Lotus were to finish the season with a 1-2 result they'd end the year one point adrift. Instead, Lotus is now under threat from Toro Rosso, which is only nine points behind it heading into the final round while McLaren could, in thoery, overhaul Sauber to step up to eighth place in the championship. Red Bull meanwhile will end the year with half the points it scored in 2014 while Williams looks liekly poised to drop 60 points. Ferrari meanwhile could double last season's tally with a strong performance in Abu Dhabi, highlighting the reversal of fortunes for the Maranello outfit. 29 GPWEEK.com // 29 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> BRAZIL PARTNERS: Mercedes 1-2 for 2015
