Tyres have been chosen, travel schedules have been arranged and teams are gearing up for what has come down to a battle between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. The 2016 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is where one of the two Mercedes drivers will claim victory. On a hot streak, Hamilton saw first-place wins in the last three Grand Prix’s in Austin, Mexico and Brazil. For Hamilton, he must claim another first-place finish in Abu Dhabi to claim victory, but Formula-One-Paddock-Club-Seating-04.jpgonly if teammate and fierce rival Rosberg falls below the top three. For Rosberg, who has been outwitted by Hamilton over the last few weeks, will need to maintain third or better in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to be crowned world champion.
