Lewis #Hamilton can claim the 2017 driver’s title on Sunday if he wins and Sebastian #Vettel finishes lower than 5th or if he (Hamilton) finishes 2nd and Vettel finishes lower
than 8th. Hamilton cannot win the title this weekend if he finishes 3rd or lower.
Note: Hamilton 2nd and Vettel 9th would mean there was a 75 point gap between the two with a maximum 75 points still on the table. However, Hamilton would confirm
his 4th title because even if he won the final 3 races of the season, Vettel could not equal Hamilton’s 8 wins (so far) this season
