The end of the Formula 1 season draws ever closer, with this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix acting as the penultimate round ahead of the finale in Abu Dhabi at the end of the month.

While the neutral will be hoping for a title showdown at Yas Marina, Nico Rosberg is looking to clinch his first F1 drivers’ championship at Interlagos and add his name to the list of names crowned at the circuit in Sao Paulo.

Victory will be enough to wrap the title up for Rosberg, but with Mercedes teammate and championship rival Lewis Hamilton taking victory in the last two races, he is bound to face a stern challenge in Brazil.

Here is all the information on how you can watch the Brazilian Grand Prix live on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app this weekend.

Rosberg has been battling teammate and three-time champion Lewis Hamilton atop the F1 standings all season long, and can capture his first-ever season title at Interlagos this weekend. Rosberg (349 points) currently holds a 19-point advantage over Hamilton (330 points) with two races remaining on the 2016 calendar. If Rosberg wins Sunday’s race, he will win the title. Below are further permutations in which Rosberg can win the championship on Sunday. Rosberg is the two-time defending champion in Brazil.
