Nico Rosberg has said that he hopes Lewis Hamilton comes out top and wins the 2007 drivers' title this weekend in Brazil.

Speaking ahead of the final round in the 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Williams man added that while it is good for the sport to have the battle go right to the end, he believes Lewis has done more than enough this year to justify becoming the new #1.

"It's fantastic for Formula 1 to have a three-way battle for the Championship going into the last race of the season, which is not a situation that happens very often," said the German, who has competed against the Englishman pretty much throughout his career en-route to F1.

"Personally though, I hope Lewis manages to win because he deserves it," he added.

As for his own ambitions this weekend, Nico is keen to do well to try and cement his ninth place in the drivers' championship, especially after failing to score in Japan and China.

"Interlagos is a great circuit and I am looking forward to it. It's a cool track, with a variety of corners and surface undulations," he continued. "The past two races have been difficult, so I hope to finish the season well and to hold on to my present position in the Drivers' Championship."

Williams technical director, Sam Michael meanwhile also wants Nico to do well in order to ensure the Grove-based outfit keep fourth spot in the constructors' ahead of Red Bull Racing, who are just four points behind.

With Alex Wurz having retired though and tester Kazuki Nakajima having been drafted in to fill the void, Williams' hopes will rest pretty much completely on Rosberg and how he performs relative to RBR's David Coulthard and Mark Webber.

"As this is the last race of the 2007 season, we will be pushing hard to claim points in the Constructors' Championship. We have had two races in a row where we haven't scored points due to various circumstances, but we are aiming to change that in Brazil," Sam concluded.
