Lewis Hamilton finally wrapped up his fifth World Championship last weekend at the Mexican Grand Prix.
Mercedes could not match the pace of the Red Bulls or Ferrari, but Hamilton drove a responsible race and secured the points he needed to win the title.
With two races left in the season we discuss how the season may finish up, as well as a round up of all the latest F1 news.
Ferrari finally got back to winning ways this past weekend at the US Grand Prix, but it wasn’t Sebastian Vettel climbing up to the top step of the podium.
After more mistakes, crashes and drama Vettel was well down in the race order before the first lap was even over. Räikkönen, on the other hand, made a bold move to pass Hamilton at the start and drove a flawless race to win for the first time since the 2013 Australian Grand Prix.
This week we discuss everything that is going on at Ferrari, the fact that it’s when and not if Lewis will win the championship and why we think Maurizio Arrivabene is doing his best impression of ‘old man yells at cloud’.
Is the championship all over, or is there a chance that it could slip through Lewis Hamilton’s fingers?
It seems unlikely, but Mercedes boss Toto Wolff isn’t taking anything for granted, and working hard to make sure Lewis Hamilton wins his fifth World Championship.
Also this week Arrivabene believes it’s only a matter of time before Sebastian Vettel wins a championship with Ferrari and much more.
It was another bad weekend for Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari at the Japanese Grand Prix last weekend. Vettel qualified poorly when the rain showers came down at Suzuka and only managed to finish in P6.
Meanwhile, where Vettel struggled Lewis Hamilton excelled and has basically sown up his fifth World Championship, which he can clinch at the US Grand Prix next weekend.
We also talk about all the other incidents at Suzuka as well as the new all-female W Series, Red Bull-Honda mania in Japan and much more!
Team orders were the big talking point after Lewis Hamilton won the Russian Grand Prix at the Sochi Autodrom last weekend.
Hamilton is firmly in control leading the Drivers Championship with just 5 races left in the season. There’s still hope for Sebastian Vettel, but the Ferrari driver is going to need some big results to go his way if he’s to have any hope of beating Lewis before the end of the year.
This week we also talk about Max Verstappen’s impressive drive at Sochi, details of the Racing Point recent purchase of Force India, and much more.
