  1. If they finish where they start Hamilton could halve his deficit to Perez tomorrow. This is the really championship intrigue in the season. Who will finally step up to take 2nd from Perez’ weak grasp.

    1. Hamilton himself said his chances have more to do with how Perez performs on the upcoming races than to his own.
      Max won the WDC, so if Red Bull decides to help Perez and he doesn’t make any more slip ups, he’ll easily clinch the 2nd place even with this disastrous season he’s been having.

      Hamilton’s best bet is to place the car where it belongs and hope that Perez will continue to be subpar and making mistakes.

  2. @dmw fourth to eighth in the champion will also be a big tussle, for anyone who’s interested in that.
