This time, Lewis Hamilton is not going to lose any sleep on the eve of the Formula One title decider.Rosberg holds a 12-point lead and needs only to finish third -- even if Hamilton wins -- to take the F1 title, 34 years after his father Keke Rosberg was crowned F1 champion for the only time.It also kept Hamilton up all night in what he said is the only time he has failed to sleep the night before a race during his entire career.This season, both Mercedes drivers have won nine races each in a topsy-turvy campaign that started out largely in Rosberg's favor when he won the opening four races of the campaign as Hamilton struggled with engine problems.Although Rosberg trailed Hamilton by 19 points heading into the summer break, he then turned the tables on Hamilton to lead again by 33 points.Rosberg has finished runner-up to Hamilton for the past two years but his season has seen the best and most focused driving of his career.
