With three races to go to the end of the 2017 Formula 1 season, the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) has 331 points to the 265 of the German Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari). With 66 units ahead of a total of 75 points at stake, only a catastrophe could prevent the British from being crowned.
Hamilton will be champion this Sunday at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, the scene of the Mexican Grand Prix, if ...
- Finish in the top five.
- Finish in the top nine and Vettel does not win the race.
- Vettel is third or worse, whatever his own result.
If he does not succeed in Mexico, the British will still have two more chances at the Brazilian Grand Prix (November 12) and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (November 26).
