If Lewis Hamilton is to take his title fight with Nico Rosberg down to the wire then one long-running sequence must almost certainly end this weekend - the reigning F1 champions mysterious Brazilian Grand Prix victory jinx. Nine times Hamilton has raced at atmospheric Interlagos, the track forever associated with his hero Ayrton Senna, and nine times he has failed to win.Two second places and one third are the best results for a driver who has otherwise cantered up F1s all-time winners list over the last few seasons. What Rosberg needs to be champion in BrazilIts not that Hamilton has been completely starved of success in Brazil - after all, what will probably remain the most dramatic moment of his career occurred there in 2008 when he clinched his first world title in a dramatic final corner of the season.But he still only crossed the line on that famous day in fifth place. The podiums top step has remained elusive. Hamiltons Interlagos recordThe notion of a sportsperson or team being jinxed at a particular venue or competition is common - just ask fans of Major League Baseballs Chicago Cubs before last weekend - but invariably hard to definitively explain.Thats certainly the case where Hamilton and the Brazilian GP are concerned.Of the races that have been ever-present on the calendar since Hamiltons F1 debut in 2007, Brazil is the only one the 51-time GP victor hasnt triumphed at - despite his team-mates winning on three occasions. Lewis Hamilton in Brazil Year Qualified Finished 2007 2nd 7th 2008 4th 5th 2009 17th 3rd 2010 4th 4th 2011 4th Retired (gearbox) 2012 Pole Retired (collision) 2013 5th 9th 2014 2nd 2nd 2015 2nd 2nd Incredibly, he has led only 26 laps in total - less than half the circuits race distance.Be it mistakes or unreliability, drama has certainly never been far away for Hamilton at Interlagos.Hamiltons baptism in 2007 certainly fell into this category. Aiming to become F1s first rookie world champion, he qualified second ahead of his two title rivals but then got overambitious on the first lap, dropping to eighth, before his recovery was scuppered by a brief-but-disastrous gearbox glitch. A year later and what appeared McLarens cautious management of Hamiltons weekend - he only needed to finish fifth to become champion - seemed to affect the driver and in the end his dramatic final-lap pass on Timo Glock meant a hardly-vintage race performance was completely forgotten in the title euphoria.He drove far better a year later to finish third from a rain-affected 17th on the grid.It wasnt until 2012, and his final race for McLaren, that Hamilton even led a lap at Interlagos but hopes of signing off from Woking with a flourish were scuppered when Nico Hulkenberg dropped his Force India into the side of the Britons car at the first corner in a botched overtake in the wet. Nico Hulkenberg slides into Lewis Hamilton while he was leading the 2012 Brazilian GP ending the then-McLaren driver’s race. Mercedes rise to power means Hamiltons two best chances to end his Interlagos drought have come in the last two years, yet it has been Rosberg who has beaten him to victory. 2014 probably represents the one that got away when a charging Hamilton was on course to jump his team-mate through the pit stops but spun on his in-lap at the end of the backstraight.Shaded by team-matesUnusually, Hamilton has been outperformed by his team-mates in F1 at Interlagos more often than hes outperformed them.In addition to Rosbergs back-to-back wins in 2014 and 2015 at Mercedes, Jenson Button cashed in on Hamiltons 2012 collision with Hulkenberg to claim the victory. Hamilton versus team-mates in Brazil Lewis Hamilton Head-to-head Team-mates 0 Wins 3 3 Podiums 5 1 Pole positions 2 4 Qualified ahead 5 3 Ahead in two-car race finish 4 Hamilton has also been out-qualified five times out of nine at Interlagos, with his sole pole coming in 2012.In fact, he has yet to beat Rosberg on either Saturday or Sunday on this circuit in their three previous years as team-mates. Not that there has been much in it, mind you - less than a tenth of a second decided their 2014 and 2015 pole duels in the Germans favour. What does Lewis say?In the now perennial pre-Brazil question to him, Hamilton was asked at the Mexican GP if there was any particular reason why victory at Interlagos had eluded him.Not particularly, he replied. In McLaren I probably had one year [2012] where I could have won it and I was taken out by Hulkenberg.Then last year, and the year before, Nico was exceptionally quick. I think last year I was very close, I qualified second by 0.07s or something like that, I lost out in the gearshift up the hill. So who knows, third time lucky maybe? Which races has Lewis not won? Grand Prix Attempts Best finish Brazilian GP 9 2nd (x2) European GP 7 2nd (x3) Korean GP* 4 2nd (x2) Indian GP* 3 4th French GP* 2 3rd *no longer on calendar If Hamilton wins this weekend, it certainly wouldnt be the first time it has taken a multiple world champion a long time to crack Brazil - Senna took eight attempts to win his home race, albeit at two different tracks.Its that connection to Senna, and the desire to emulate his boyhood idols F1 achievements, that has sometimes been cited as a potential extra source of pressure on Hamilton in Brazil. Ahead of last years race, the Briton said a first victory at Interlagos would act as a salute from him to the late three-time world champion.The race to the 2016 titleMaybe it is too emotional for him, suggested F1 filmmaker Mario Muth on this weeks F1 Report. You could see when he won three championships he kind of had to search for new motivation because he got Ayrtons record. Maybe Brazil is too much Ayrton for him.Maybe, but probably increasingly unlikely for a driver who has already joined his hero in the pantheon of the sports most successful drivers. Where has Lewis won most often? Race wins Grand Prix 5 Hungary, Canada, USA 4 China, Great Britain 3 Italy, Japan, Germany 2 Abu Dhabi, Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Monaco, Russia, Singapore 1 Malaysia, Spain, Turkey, Austria, Mexico Time to end the drought?If Hamilton could choose a moment to finally crack the Brazilian GP then it would surely be this weekend.Needing a victory to make sure his title defence remains alive all the way to the Abu Dhabi season finale in two weeks, the 31-year-olds task at Interlagos has never been clearer.Ive never won in Brazil, so I go into this weekend focused on changing that, he declared before departing for Sao Paulo.For many reasons then, a 52nd career win on Sunday would probably never taste sweeter.Can Nico Rosberg clinch the title at Interlagos?

Still, Juventus has an 11-point lead over second-place Roma and is 17 points ahead of Napoli with seven rounds remaining. In the 37th minute at the San Paolo stadium, Callejon beat Juve midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah to redirect a cross from Lorenzo Insigne from the edge of the box for his 12th goal since transferring from Madrid in the off-season. Mertens sealed the result after collecting a long pass from Goran Pandev in the 81st and muscling off Claudio Marchisio before beating goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon with a long bouncing shot. Napoli is still hoping to edge Roma for second place and gain the last direct Champions League berth. "This is a very important win, because it keeps us close to Roma," Insigne said. "Were going to fight until the end." Juventus, which was without suspended Serie A scoring leader Carlos Tevez, struggled to create chances. The Turin powers only other loss was a 4-2 defeat at Fiorentina in October. Earlier, Mattia Destros early goal was key and Roma was fortunate when a penalty kick for relegation-threatened Sassuolo was waved off in a 2-0 win. Roma faces Parma on Wednesday in the resumption of a match from February that was stopped after eight minutes due to a waterlogged pitch. "No other squads will be playing," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "Weve got to take advantage of that." Elsewhere Sunday, fourth-place Fiorentina was held to a 0-0 draw at Sampdoria. Fiorentina winger Juan Vargas banged a free kick off the corner of the goal frame in the 78th and Sampdoria coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was sent off for protesting in the final minutes, grabbing an officials arm as he walked off the pitch. Parma remained one point behind Inter Milan in the race for fifth and the final Europa League berth after a 3-2 loss at Lazio. Antonio Candreva scored the winner for Lazio in added time of a match marked by poor defending on both sides.dddddddddddd After Lazios Senad Lulic and Parmas Jonathan Biabiany traded goals in the first half, Miroslav Klose restored Lazios lead in the 67th and then Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti let the ball trickle in between his legs in the 81st for an own goal. Luca Toni scored twice after Marco Donadels opener in Hellas Veronas 3-0 win over Genoa and Alessio Cerci set up one goal for Omar El Kaddouri and scored another in Torinos 2-1 win over Cagliari. In Naples, only Buffon kept the hosts from scoring early on. Buffon stopped a close-range attempt from Callejon seven minutes in, Hamsik had a goal annulled for offside seconds later and Buffon tipped an attempt from Hamsik over the bar in the 10th. Buffon also blocked a powerful effort from Callejon in the 29th then stopped a dangerous free kick from Algeria fullback Faouzi Ghoulam in the 58th. Napoli was helped by vocal crowd support. "As always, the fans gave us a big hand," Insigne said. In Reggio Emilia, Destro had an easy time finding the target from the centre of the area in the 16th after getting set up by Belgium midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who stripped the ball from a defender just outside the area. Competing for a spot on Italys World Cup squad, it was the fourth consecutive match in which Destro scored, and it was his 10th goal since beginning his injury-delayed season in December. Sassuolo thought it had a chance to equalize in the 35th when referee Nicola Rizzoli -- Italys World Cup representative -- appeared to change his mind several times before denying the hosts a penalty for minor contact between Roma defender Mehdi Benatia and Nicola Sansone. Roma substitute Michel Bastos sealed the victory with a goal six minutes into added time after getting set up by Romas 37-year-old captain Francesco Totti, who replaced Destro in the 79th. Playing its first season in the top division, Sassuolo remained one point above last-place Catania, which visits Udinese on Monday.
