Button's possibly final Grand Prix set to be a hugely emotional oneBy Kelly Sanders Nov 23, 2016
Despite the points situation, Hamilton was keen to look for positives after Sunday's race at Interlagos, where he took a dominant ninth win of the season.
With Nico Rosberg only needing a third-place finish to clinch his first crown, defending champion Lewis Hamilton believes he faces "impossible odds" as he looks to create a major upset.
The F1 title fight between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg is still delicately poised at 50-50, according to this week's F1 Report guests.
If the number of third places comes into play, Hamilton would win this with an unassailable four against Rosberg's two.
The Briton said: "I can't and won't give up". He threw the future of the Singapore Grand Prix into doubt after claiming the event's organisers were no longer interested in hosting a race only to then say he wants to strike a "long-term deal" with the city-state.
"This is the first time we've had a 21st race in any Formula One season and it's fitting that such a record-breaking year should conclude with the Drivers' Championship being fought right to the very end".

Joe Schopper's third-quarter line drive punt actually was a good thing because Jazz Peavy fumbled, and the Boilermakers recovered. If Wisconsin runs the table and wins the Big Ten , are they in? "But I am very happy the 1,000 yards came when they did".
In a convincing win, Rosberg came in 25 seconds ahead of his teammate, extending his winning streak to seven consecutive races, and a 43 point lead over Hamilton.
Toto Wolff is hoping the drivers race in a fair manner when they take to the track on Sunday and maintains that the teams values haven't changed with regards to allowing both the drivers to race each other without any team orders. "I shall let you know on Thursday, when I have had a bit more time to think about it". "I'm looking forward to concluding this chapter in style and starting a new one with just as much enthusiasm, and I can't wait to see what the future holds".
Whatever happens, the end to the season is a nail-biter with a wafer-thin advantage between the two drivers.
"I'm faced with pretty impossible odds no matter what I do this weekend". Furthermore, Rosberg and Hamilton drive for the same team, Mercedes, and on a street-type circuit with two long straights, their vehicle will reign supreme as has been the case for three seasons now.
"I don't know how I shall approach my last race yet", said the German. "Both of them have been exceptional and either one would make a worthy champion".
It really was exciting to watch as the young Dutchman carved his way through the field in soaking wet conditions.This man is really a talent that we will recognise as a world champion one day soon.
