Lewis Hamilton has a mountain to climb after falling 23 points behind Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg in the title race with just five races remaining. Jordan Franks Jersey Retro . I have no idea whats going to happen in these next five races, Hamilton said. Be as focused as I can possibly be, put in performances like I have done this weekend, and pray that the car holds together.How many wins does he need?To put it simply, the only way Hamilton can guarantee sealing a fourth world title is by winning the final five Grands Prix - which would be one of the most sensational and dramatic streaks in history. How unlucky has Hamilton been?Four victories and one second-place finish would not be enough were Rosberg to triumph on the weekend his team-mate falters. In that scenario, the Brit would be stranded on 383 points, the German on 385.Weve already covered their records at the remaining circuits, with Hamilton seeming to have the edge at the next three in particular, but their 2016 form - mechanical failures and crashes aside - must also be taken into consideration.Rosberg has scored an average of 18 points this season, while his average finishing position, taking out his one retirement in Spain, is 2.4 thanks to his eight victories. Nico and Lewis in 2016, and what they require to win the 2016 world title Nico Rosberg Lewis Hamilton Points 288 265 Average points per race 18 16.5 Average finishing pos.* 2.4 2.3 Points needed to guarantee title 103 125 What would be enough? 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st *excluding retirements Such consistency is incredibly unlikely in Formula 1, especially if this season is anything to go by, but were Rosberg to finish second in all of the remaining five races, he would end with a total score of 378 points. That would be much more than a Drivers Championship runner-up has ever accumulated before.And if Rosberg did in fact reach this tally, Hamilton would need at least four victories to claim a fourth world title. Even in that case, he would need a third-place finish in the final race to reach 380 points.Hamilton has a mountain to climb but the aim for the world champion must be to forget about permutations and complete the job himself by winning the next five. He does, at least, have experience of such a streak - having won from Italy to USA in 2014 - but this would be far more impressive. Sky Sports commentator Damon Hill says Lewis Hamilton can still win the F1 Drivers Championship despite being 23 points behind Nico Rosberg. Clean weekendsOf course, a season-ending winning run would be highly unlikely if Hamilton was to suffer any more mechanical glitches. Worryingly for the Brit, Mercedes could offer no explanation to why the problems only appear to be affecting him and couldnt guarantee that they wont happen again.However, one thing that team principal Toto Wolff was sure about was that Hamiltons two remaining power units, one fresh and one three races old, should mean there is no need for a second grid penalty.Still, Hamilton is understandably agitated, even offering to miss out on practice sessions to save his engines.Right now, my concern is Ive got these two engines and I want them to make sure to treat them with whatever they can to make sure they both last, he said. Lewis Hamilton struggles to understand why his Mercedes engine is the only one that fails after his engine blew whilst leading the Malaysia GP. If that means not doing a session, I will not do the session. Just let me know what Ive got to do because Ill do whatever it takes to be able to see through the races.Thats not a scenario Wolff would be comfortable with, nor would it be one Hamilton should actively pursue. His lack of Friday running in Singapore culminated in one of his sloppiest weekends of the season.Sky F1s Martin Brundle did attempt to offer some sort of an explanation for Hamiltons problems, ruling out wild conspiracy claims, installation problems and driving style. That would only leave bad luck.Whatever it is, it needs to stop from Hamiltons point of view. He has suffered five specific instances of debilitating unreliability this year and he can surely afford no more.Problems for Nico?One way Hamilton may not need the maximum 25 points in every race would be if Rosberg also suffered failures.Theres a lot of time left - some bad luck is going to come Nicos way, Damon Hill, the 1996 world champion, said on Sky Sports News HQ.But bad luck for Rosberg or not, Hamilton can still win the title with five successive wins. Such a winning streak has happened before, most notably in 2014 for the Briton, so could it happen again?

Jonathan Toews short-handed breakaway goal early in the third period snapped a tie, and lifted the Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory on Friday night. Patrick Sharp scored his team-leading 30th goal and Kris Versteeg ended an eight-game drought to help the Blackhawks pull out a win without Kane, the teams leading scorer who was placed on long-term injured reserve after sustaining a lower-body injury in Chicagos victory over St. Louis on Wednesday. The Blackhawks were also without injured forwards Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell, and defenceman Michal Rozsival. "Thats one of those things, we have to learn how to play without our best players," Toews said. "Weve done it without Hoss (Marian Hossa), and now Sadder and Kaner. "It doesnt matter. If someones nursing something, we have to find a way to fill that void." Sharp has scored at least 30 goals four times in his career. He has reached the mark in the past three full NHL seasons. Corey Crawford made 26 saves as defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago tightened up defensively and overcame mistakes late in the second period and early in the third that helped the Hurricanes fight back from a two goal deficit. "Thats a game we can look back on during the playoffs as being able to shut a team down in the last five minutes," Crawford said. "I dont think they got a shot in the last five minutes. Thats the way you want to play." Carolinas Alexander Semin scored his 20th and 21st goals 3:36 apart, but the Hurricanes lost to Chicago for the second time this season. The Blackhawks beat Carolina in a road shootout on Oct. 15 in their only other meeting this season. Semin tied it off a faceoff during a 5-on-3 power play at 2:58 of the third. Eric Staal won the draw and fed Semin, who fired in a screened shot from the top of the left circle. Semin had cut Chicagos lead to 2-1 with 37.7 seconds left in the second. He was open in the right circle, took Staals pass from the left boards and fired a quick shot past Crawfords glove. "We gave them some excitement to their game at the end of the second," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "We took six penalties in a row, a stretch of six penalties that got them right back in the game. "Then Johnnny scored a huge goal for us, which was very timely. NFL Cheap Jerseys. quot; Toews third short-handed goal at 3:29 of the third put Chicago ahead for good. A shot by Staal rimmed all the way around the boards in the Chicago zone and came out to centre ice. Toews got the puck, skated in alone, and beat Anton Khudobin with a high backhander. "Obviously I missed the shot down the wing," Staal said. "I wanted to go high glove, and they got a good bounce and good player going the other way on a breakaway." Once Toews put Chicago in front, the Blackhawks sparkled defensively in the third period and held on to extend their point streak to four games (3-0-1). Khudobin stopped 22 shots after a career-best 46 saves in Carolinas win at Columbus on Tuesday. Kane, who could miss the rest of the regular season, was injured in a collision with St. Louis Brenden Morrow. He left the ice under his own power, favouring his left leg. Earlier Friday, Chicago recalled top prospect Teuvo Teravainen and forward Jeremy Morin from Rockford of the AHL. The 19-year-old Teravainen, Chicagos first-round selection in the 2012 draft, didnt play against Carolina. The Blackhawks came out flying in the scoreless first and outshot Carolina 11-4. The Hurricanes didnt record their first shot until Nathan Gerbe forced Crawford to make a glove save 11:21 in. Sharp opened the scoring on a breakaway at 3:09 of the second. He took a stretch pass up the middle from Andrew Shaw and accelerated past defencemen Justin Faulk and Ron Hainsey. He beat Khudobin with a high backhander on the stick side. Versteeg made it 2-0 with 3:34 left in the second during 4-on-4 play. Defenceman Nick Leddy carried the puck down to the left corner, then centred a pass to Versteeg, who beat Khudobin on the glove side. NOTES: Kane must sit out a minimum of 10 games and 24 days. Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said there is "no reason to think he wont" be ready for the playoffs. ... Morin has one goal and four assists in 15 games with Chicago this season. ... D David Rundblad played in his second game with the Blackhawks since being acquired from Phoenix. ... Carolina D John-Michael Liles returned after missing six games with a concussion, C Jiri Tlusty came back after sitting out two with a lower-body injury, and C Elias Lindholm and D Justin Faulk played after missing the previous game because of illnesses.
