All Lewis Hamilton has to do is finish second in Abu Dhabi and he's world champion. It sounds like he just has to turn up and it's job done. Or does it?
It just might not be. With a clean run and normal race circumstances, Mercedes should take its 12th one-two finish of the season in the finale, and even if Nico Rosberg wins, that will be enough for Hamilton to take the title.
Having gone into plenty of races fully expecting a straightforward result from the pitwall, I can tell you that there is plenty that can go wrong. There's always a cricket bat waiting to hit you on the back of the head.
