    4 races to go, 125 points on offer, which driver will take the title?

    Mathematically, there are 6 drivers who can still win the title.
    Standings after Russian Grand Prix
    Lewis Hamilton: 291
    Nico Rosberg: 274
    Daniel Ricciardo: 199
    Valtteri Bottas: 145
    Sebastian Vettel: 143

    Fernando Alonso:141
    Jenson Button: 96
    Nico Hülkenberg: 76

    I voted Jenson, as long as the top 6 fail to finish the next 7 faces and he wins.

    I am a bit a LH fanboy :p so i hope he will get the title this year ,but this year,is maybe one of the rarest opportunities for Rosberg to get the WDC !

    The funniest scenario would be Ricciardo getting it somehow on the last race :p (his smile would turn into a trollface then :D)

    Rosberg. He doesn't get deterred by sideshows, no matter how many Hamilton tries to create, and he apologises for his mistakes.

    Most deserved as well, in my opinion. And I'm not even a fan of him really.

    I think it will go hamiltons way.
    Especially with the new radio rules.
    It will suit him better over rosberg.
    Once the bad luck stays out of it.

    I think the complete opposite, the new rule should really suit Rosberg better than Hamilton...

    I think hamilton has a better feeling of a car.
    He has more of a natural instinct.
    Rosberg is more data driven.

    But i dont think it will make a big difference between both drivers.
    It will still be very close.

    It's a long shot, but one wonders if RB should not have issued team orders in favor or Ricciardo today

    (with a win in last race, second place could be very possible).

    I like Ricciardo as a person, but I can't stand his team. I have been an LH fan since I started following F1 a few years back and like German cars, so I would like Hamilton to, plus he seems to be on a hot streak recently.

    With the current Trend its Hamilton unless some reliability issues came up or Lewis got deviated

    I think it's Hamiltons season to lose, he seems to have the ultimate pace during a race. If he qualifies top 3 I'd say he has a good chance of winning any race.

    I think Nico is upping his game, I didn't expect him to take the pole at Japan and if Hamilton doesn't do everything perfect to the end of the season Nico will take the championship.

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace
