Lewis Hamilton heads to the Brazilian Grand Prix off the back of clinching his sixth F1 world title.
Mercedes have dominated the campaign and Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas secured second place in the standings by winning in the United States a fortnight ago.
There is a three-way battle for third between Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and the two Ferraris of Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel.
In midfield, Verstappen’s team-mate Alexander Albon must hold off the challenge of Carlos Sainz in the McLaren and Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly – the man he replaced at Red Bull – to claim a top-six finish.
Hamilton was victorious at the Brazilian Grand Prix last year with a huge stroke of fortune.
Verstappen was in the lead but a collision with backmarker Esteban Ocon on lap 44 allowed the Mercedes star to seize the win.
The incident triggered an angry confrontation between the drivers after the race.
