Hamilton admits of facing 'pretty impossible odds' to win F1 title

London [UK], Nov. 22 : Ahead of the final race in Abu Dhabi on November 27, three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has admitted that it has not been a "perfect season" and the odds are firmly stacked against him as he bids to win the Formula One championship.

Hamilton, who is 12 points adrift of Nico Rosberg, knows that his Mercedes team-mate needs only a top-three finish to clinch his maiden championship and stop Hamilton from becoming the first British driver in grand prix history to win four titles.
