Going in to the Brazilian Grand Prix, champions in both categories have already been decided. British driver Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes took the World Drivers’ Championship (WDC) at the United States Grand Prix last month at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. His team, Mercedes, dominated the season in the Constructors’ Championship and took that victory in points earlier in the season.
According to Formula 1, currently in second place in the WDC is Hamilton’s teammate at Mercedes, Nico Rosberg. His win of the Mexican Grand Prix put him ahead of the now third-place holder, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari. Rosberg has 272 points; Vettel has 251. With two races to go in the season, the race remains in play for second place in the drivers’ championship.
In the Constructors’ Championship, according to F1, Ferrari is in second place going into Brazil with 374 points. Williams occupies third place with 243 points. Williams driver Felipe Massa and his fans enjoy his home country race this weekend, as does fellow Brazilian driver Felipe Nasr of Sauber.
The final race of the 2015 season is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. That event takes place November 29 at Yas Marina Circuit.
