The 2014 Formula One™ season finale is taking place this weekend at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. This weekend will mark the first time double-points have ever been awarded in a grand prix and it will most certainly decide the 2014 World Championship.
The season thus far has been consumed with Mercedes AMG Petronas domination and the 2014 champion will be none other than one of these drivers. On Sunday, either Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg will be named the 2014 Formula One™ World Champion!
Take a look at where each driver falls currently, the allure of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and brace yourself for what's coming!
A Mercedes AMG Petronas Championship is Brewing
The 2014 F1™ Championship has already been decided... to an extent. Due to the current standings and the new double-points being awarded in Abu Dhabi, only two drivers still have a shot at winning it all: Hamilton and Rosberg.
These two drivers have been neck-in-neck throughout the entire season constantly securing one-two finishes, both racing toward the title. While this outcome is fantastic for the Mercedes AMG Petronas team itself as one of its drivers will be crowned, it's been a gruesome battle between the two talented drivers. They have been involved in numerous bouts where actions were taken too far on the track causing issues and early dismisses from races.
Hamilton has 10 wins under his belt thus far with Rosberg trailing him with five. As far as points go, Hamilton holds the lead in the standings with 334 points to Rosberg's 317 points heading into Abu Dhabi. This means that Rosberg is only 17 points behind Hamilton.
Throughout the season, points are awarded based on these positionings:
1st: 25 Points
2nd: 18 Points
3rd: 15 Points
4th: 12 Points
5th: 10 Points
6th: 8 Points
7th: 6 Points
8th: 4 Points
9th: 2 Points
10th: 1 Point
With the double-points awarded in Abu Dhabi, first place will receive 50 points instead of 25. With Rosberg only 17 points behind Hamilton currently, double-points would be enough for him to surpass Hamilton in the overall standings if he were to win at Yas Marina.
In other words, ladies and gents, we've got a race on our hands!
