Some people may think that there is only one thing to watch in Sunday’s season finale in Abu Dhabi – the world title showdown between Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg – but there are several other storylines well worth savouring. We break down the key themes to look out for at Yas Marina

Nico Rosberg knows that despite taking pole position in Abu Dhabi, he will need a major slice of good fortune on Sunday if he is to prevent Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton becoming world champion. Hence, Rosberg’s strategy is simple: put as much pressure as possible on his rival – and hope that he cracks
Saturday in Abu Dhabi saw title outsider Nico Rosberg do all he could to keep the heat on championship favourite and Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton. Yet again Rosberg put his silver car clearly on pole, while Hamilton very nearly fell into the clutches of the hard-charging Williams.
Lewis Hamilton knows how to win a world championship, though he will be hoping his path to a second drivers’ crown proves slightly less fraught than the last-lap dramas of Brazil 2008. Hamilton, who admits he prefers chasing to being chased, takes a 17-point lead into Sunday’s Abu Dhabi decider, safe in the knowledge that even if Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg wins the race, second will be enough to bring him the title
