McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton can still win his second title, but the 2008 champion needs the top three to falter.

“I’ll keep trying _ we have nothing to lose now,” said Hamilton, who has 222 points.

McLaren teammate Jenson Button has no chance of holding on to the championship he won in 2009.

Williams driver Nico Hulkenberg will also look to follow up his first career pole at Interlagos with another standout performance at Abu Dhabi, as the German driver’s seat with the British team is not yet secured for 2011.
