    Max 142 points ahead of 2nd best constructor team Mercedes and winning the WCC alone with 2 races to spare.

    Mercedes really lucky that Leclerc retired with mechanical failure else Ferrari would have been ahead and got much closer than the current 20 points gap.

    Max winning 17 out of 20 and on podium 19 out if 20 races – incredible consistently brilliant performance of Max.

    With 2 races remaining Max has broken a more than 70 year record of most % wins in a season with 17/22 = 77.3% beating Albert Ascari 75% (6 wins out of 8) in 1952.

    Max might be the first driver to lead 1,000 laps within a single season – so far he lead 922 laps of 1,217 laps raced = 75.7% beating the amazing Jim Clark record from 1963 leading 71.47% (506/708).

  2. 52 points left for the WDC, but everybody expects Max to with both the remaining races, there are then 42 left fot the rest of the drivers, realistically.
    Checo is 32 points ahead and would come ahead in a tie with his 2 wins in the early season, So, besides Max winning, Checo needs 10 points to be ensure the RBR 1-2. Two measly 8P, or a single 5P would do it. Seems likely enough, especially with the recent slump of form in Merc after a brief surge. McL look like they will be “best of the rest” for the remains of the season. Even with his subpar performance since the Miami GP, after today’s result, Checo looks like a good bet for second in the WDC.

    1. I don’t understand how you calculated 42 points for anyone besides Max in the last two races. If we say he gets 1st in both races, the maximum others can score is 36 (not counting fastest lap points).
      Perez has 32 points over Hamilton, so he needs 20 points for 2nd place if Lewis wins the next races with fastest lap, but the odds of that happening are very low. Realistically Checo needs only 6-8 points to settle the score.

      1. You are (almost) quite right. I made a silly mistake. I know of course that 2P is 18 points but somehow counted 20.
        But there is no reason you should not count the flaps, so the maximum score is 38, not 36 or 42 (Max winning both times). So Checo needs 6 points. Sounds quite likely, something like 8P + 9P, or 1 7P.
        In case Max does not win there are 52 points on the table, Checo would need 20, It does not sound like too much but I would not bet too heavily on that.

        And there is the internal Fezza battle, after Charles’ bad luck DNF (or was it DNS?) yesterday, Carlos is 22 ahead, and is certainly more consistent (or luckier?) than Charles, with 38 (Max winning) or 52 points on the table it seems very likely that Carlos will finish ahead of Charles again.

    2. While i agree with the last race but Las Vegas in those cold temperatures the Red Bull doesn’t like cold So qualify you wil see a none Red Bull on top and in the race it will be difficult to get the tyres warmed up so Charles to get pole position and lead the first laps… mcLaren we didn’t see them in the cold yet (after the update)

      1. Given the AM surge in form and the unusual conditions, (supposedly unfavorable for RBR but who knows) we can still dream of the 33th win for Fred
