What Hamilton needs to do to beat Rosberg to F1 title

For the second time in the last three years, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg both arrive at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in with a chance of being crowned Formula 1 world champion.

As he trails Rosberg by 12 points, Hamilton has to at least finish third to have any chance of overhauling his teammate - while Rosberg is in the enviable position of only having to come third to put the title out of Hamilton's reach, no matter what the Briton does.

Below is a list of all the possible scenarios in which either Mercedes driver could be crowned champion in Abu Dhabi:
