The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be all about the private battle between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Their personal showdown for the 2016 Formula 1 world championship is the only show in town this weekend.
Destiny is still very much in Rosberg's hands. He enjoys a 12-point lead at the top of the standings, which means he can finish as low as third in Sunday's Yas Marina F1 race and still be crowned champion regardless of what Hamilton does.
Hamilton needs help. He needs to win the race and hope at least two other cars can somehow finish between himself and Rosberg. Or he needs Rosberg to suffer some kind of misfortune - a reliability problem or other incident that either drops him well down the order, or curtails Rosberg's race altogether.
