RasputinLives Nico has the mathematical upperhand but I think he losing his head. And the luck will swig the other way at some point I think. I'm still believing Lewis will do it at the last race (hopefully double points wont make the difference).
You know what, we could be witnessing a re-run of 86 with the two best cars leaving the door open for the third man. So, I'm not certain it will happen but since the Rosberg and Hamilton battle is becoming corrosive lets hope Danny can grin his way to the crown.
Interesting question. So If our world champion is mathematically uncatchable in the final race and for a laugh switches to Caterham for the final race. Would that make the Caterham a championship winning car?
No, there's a difference between the championship winning driver and the constructor. He would still be a champion but not in the winning car.
It's like when drivers have taken the number 1 to another team after their title. Was Arrows a championship winning car even when it had Hills number 1 on the front?
I could see a situation where Lewis needs to overtake Nico to win the title but Nico slams the door in his face and they take each other whilst Ricciardo takes full advantage of it .... the sub plot behind this is how will Vettel react when he has to support his team mate's title charge - the ignominy of it might be too much to take as reigning champ
