    So even if Perez keeps getting 2nds Max is what, 3-4 races from clinching the title?

    1. At least 5 races and it still comes down to fastest lap points or it’s 6 races, if my very quick calculations are correct.

  2. Hard to believe Alonso is still 3rd. If just. And Russell has quietly fallen 49 points behind Hamilton.

    1. Love George, but he’s definitely not responding well to the updated Merc.
      Lewis getting so much more out of the new package, plus his experience, is helping him stretch that gap.

    2. Nobody is getting to be “best of the rest” long enough

    3. Yeah, although the Aston dropped off he’s been consistent enough that he normally been a few places behind Lewis. Still a bit surprising though considering it was “only” around a 20 pint gap he had to Lewis. I think it’s down to the pints system. Or where in points paying positions they tend to finish. If you assume Lewis has been finishing 3 places ahead of alonso on average to close that gap. Normally it’s been 3rd and 6th or 4th and 7th. If it was 1st and 4th though every race, Lewis would make up the gap in just 2 races.

      Basically I’m rambling and drawing out a simple explanation. The points spread is larger between positions the higher up you finish.

      7 points between 1st and second but just 1 point between 9th and 10th.

      It would make things much closer overall if F1 used indycars points system or even more so if it were 20 points for a win down to 1point for 20th

  3. First time in F1 history, certainly since 1990 (all races count towards championship), that 1 or more drivers are mathematical no longer in contention for Driver Championship after the mid point of a season. This despite points for FLAP and sprint races.

    If a season has 22 races than race after midpoint is race 12, if a season has 21 races than also race after midpoint is race 12.

    Max has now 314 points while still available are 284 points (=110.6%), that means Pierre Gasly in 12th and those lower mathematical are out of contention.

    Previous Vettel (2011 at 96.0%), Schumacher (2002 at 95.0%) and Lewis (2020 at 91.3%) came close to achieve this.
