    No guesses on specific races, but I think either McLaren or Ferrari will pick up one more win...maybe a wet race (Leclerc?). Hamilton for the title.

    No point guessing. The season has turned everything we know about past strengths at each track on its head. It is anyone's guess who is going to win what race in the last FIVE.

    Verstappen appears to be the favourite for the driver's title, but 12 points is by no means a comfortable lead. Hamilton and Mercedes cannot be ruled out of the equation just yet. That said, what a ride Verstappen has had this season. This is his best chance to establish himself as the man to beat, to the other junior champs prepping to launch themselves into the title fight of 2022. The likes of Norris, Leclerc, Russell, Sainz, Gasly and Ocon.

    Post #1 -"Make your guess here."
    Post #5 -"No point guessing ." and "It is anyone's guess..." .

    I guess I should toss in post #6 , even though there seems no point .

    Lewis will come from behind to wrench it away , against all odds , heroically , from the "favourite for the driver's title ." .

    My guess is that it will appear epic .

    I haven't a clue who will win these specific races but despite not being ahead right now, I have a gut feeling that it will still be Hamiltons championship.

    My reasons for thinking that are... Mercs trick rear suspension couldn't be optimised in Austin due to the risk of them breaking the car but ..IF.. it can be with 4 or more of the 6 remaining races, Red Bull have a huge problem.

    See https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...zHts8Apdf.html

    A 20 kmh top speed hike is a pretty devastating tool to have in your arsenal. It was so effective that Max couldn't even stay in touch with Bottas the last time it was working and fully optimised. Maybe some of you guys will have a better idea but the unknown for me is which of these circuits will benefit most from it.

    Baggie, you would eat humble pie if Verstappen somehow wins it.

    Verstappen winning wouldn't prove Baggie wrong. It would only indicate that Mercedes is as bad at manipulating championships as they are at adapting race strategies mid race.

    Here's a recent quote from Toto :
    " The more you win the more people cheer for the underdog."
