62 points ahead of Bottas, 69 ahead of Max. Nine races to go. If it wasn't already, it is surely now a case of when, not if, he becomes the second man to win a sixth WDC.

So the question is exactly that: when? FWIW the earliest he can do it is Russia, after which there would be 130 points left, and that would require him to double (and then a bit more) his current lead in the space of four races.

Mexico/USA is probably the smart bet. Summer upgrades might muddy the waters but reliability withstanding, he's in a seriously strong position.

Mexico. Just like last year when his closest rival fell to pieces

The WDC is over, Hamilton could DNF the next 3 races and would still likely lead the championship and still be favorite. I think Hamilton will be 75+ points clear at the end of the Mexico GP but not 100+ clear before Mexico. So Mexico.

At current average points per race he'll be 87 points ahead going into Japan and 93 ahead coming out of it.

I picked USA but that's just because I'll actually be in attendance for that one.

COTA is a cool racetrack to attend. I was there for the MotoGP last year. Got a fabulous view in general admission at the end of the back straight (Turn 12 I think)

Yeah I've been there for both MotoGP and F1. Cool place and it's a fun city to hang out in for the weekend.

I've got faith in Red Bull and Max to deliver for many races after the break, so USA.

I think a 75+ lead going into COTA is highly likely so I went with Mexico.

Mexico, thus spitefully clinching it right before I attend COTA in person.
