Ahead of the final grand prix of the season here are the permutations as to how Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg can win the title in Abu Dhabi on November 23.

Hamilton currently has a 17-point lead over Mercedes team-mate Rosberg, but the matter is complicated by the fact double points are on offer to the top 10 following the introduction of the controversial ruling for this season.

Lewis Hamilton can win the title if:

* he wins or is second

* is third, fourth or fifth and Rosberg does not win

* is sixth and Rosberg does not finish in the top two

* is seventh or eighth and Rosberg does not finish in the top three

* is ninth and Rosberg does not finish in the top four

* is 10th or retires and Rosberg does not finish in the top five
