    Canít understand it. Knew it was wrong decision to be on wets as soon as I saw them on it from the comfort of my armchair. It was obvious.

    So let's speculate if Mercedes will allow Bottas to race this time. It's safe to assume that unless the top three screw up, Vettel finishes fourth while Hamilton is second (6 point gain on Vettel) or first (13 point gain).

    I hope so, but Bottas is not fast enough in Suzuka. But this is an opportunity to pay back Bottas. Bottas is 67 points behind Vettel. Hence, he is in a good position to fight for 2nd place in the championship. Five wins for Bottas could put him comfortably 2nd in the championship.

That, l am afraid would require divine intervention. Otherwise, Hamilton in his current form and the bulletproof Mercedes can easily muster more than the requisite 26 points to put this championship to rest.

    If Vettel wins it through the extraordinary circumstances which causes Hamilton to score less than 25 points, many would think Vettel was not worthy of the 2018 title because he did not win it in a head to head duel on track but by factors outside the skills of racing.

    The numbers are very much against Vettel at this point. Please read my post again, it also says that it is possible for Vettel to win it.
    It does say that , but then dismisses it , saying it would be undeserved .

    Do remember that that whole reasoning behind having Bottas honourably give away his position to Lewis in the last race was the threat of Vettel beating him , approaching from behind .
    Toto said it is only one "freaky" race and a DNF away from a close championship , so he's obviously still looking at Seb as a real threat .

    Anything can happen in F1 , and it usually does .(thanks , Murray)

    Why does anybody have to pay Bottas back anything ?
    Don't they pay him ?
    He should go to the FIA and complain about this if they aren't paying him .

    This is scandalous .
    And a little facetious as well , but seriously , he works for a team , so should be happy with the team lauding his efforts , not getting a hollow pay-back position change .

    He should be proud of his sacrifice , and own it .
    That's a hero .

    Magnussen is a dangerous guy and deserves a strong penalty. Verstappen deserved the 5sec penalty. Hisvexcuse was laughable
