Hamilton aiming for Mercedes double at final rounds

After clinching his fifth world driver's championship just under two weeks ago, Lewis Hamilton is hoping to round off another successful season for the Mercedes team by beating Ferrari to the constructor's title.

The Silver Arrows are currently 55 points ahead of the Maranello outfit with just two races remaining. In the second half of the season, Mercedes has won four races to Ferrari's two, with the former holding the lead in the championship standings since Germany.

"I really want to win this constructors' title for the team," Hamilton told Sky F1. "It really means the world to the team. My sole goal now is to try and win these next two races and give them that."

Winning their fifth consecutive title would put the German squad in a clear fifth place in the table for the most constructor's championships won, as it is currently tied with Red Bull. 

Should Ferrari outscore Mercedes by 13 points this weekend in Brazil, the championship fight will extend to Abu Dhabi, which once again hosts the final round of the season on November 25th.
