Formula One continues its American sojourn and has now moved from the north to the south and arrived at Sao Paulo, Brazil for the penultimate round of the 2014 season.

Until last season, Brazil was always the final race of the season and has been witness to multiple championship wins and heartbreaks. This season, that privilege goes to Abu Dhabi, who host the final race of the season.

The Mercedes cars should be favourites yet again at this track and Nico Rosberg will be keen to stop Lewis Hamilton's dominance in the last five races.

This race also will see the participation of just 18 cars, following the withdrawal of Marussia and Caterham due to financial issues.

Drivers' Championship Review

Lewis Hamilton leads teammate Nico Rosberg by 24 points following five consecutive victories, but the championship is nowhere close to over with double points available in the last race. This battle will most likely be decided by who wins the final race in Abu Dhabi.

Behind the title contenders comes Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, who is safe in third place, but there is a very tight battle for fourth, fifth and sixth places between Valtteri Bottas, Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso. The Finn is currently leading that battle and is six points ahead of the latter two.

Constructors' Championship Review

The Constructors' Championship is relatively uneventful after the Mercedes team were crowned champions for 2014. Red Bull Racing are guaranteed to finish second and the battle for third between Williams and Ferrari also is most likely settled with the Frank Williams owned team holding a 42-point lead and a much superior car.

The only other battle brewing will be between McLaren and Force India for fifth and sixth place, with the Vijay Mallya owned team 24 points behind.
