Formula 1: Who can win and how?

As the F1 world prepares for the final weekend of the season at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, the drivers' championship is still wide open.

It can all get a bit confusing as to who will walk away with the drivers title on Sunday evening with so many permatations available among the remaining  four contenders; Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.

Available points from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix:

1st - 25pts

2nd - 18pts

3rd - 15pts

4th - 12pts

5th - 10pts

6th - 8pts

7th - 6pts

8th -  4pts

9th-  2pts

10th -  1pt

(If drivers are tied on points, positions are decided on results countback, first comparing wins and then - if wins are equal - second places and so on)

In simple terms;

Lewis Hamilton: cannot win championship if finishing P2 or lower.

Sebastian Vettel: cannot win championship if finishing P3 or lower.

Mark Webber: cannot win the championship if finishing P6 or lower.
