The 33-year-old Englishman needs only eight further points, and will wrap up his fifth title at the United States Grand Prix in a fortnight's time if he takes the chequered flag in Austin, and Vettel is third or lower.

'I don't even want to think about him breaking a finger.
"I'm not the one who makes the rules but I think it's a similar scenario to what I had in China with him", said Verstappen.
Vettel's move smelt of desperation, and it marked his seventh mistake of an increasingly-erratic campaign which has unravelled since the summer break. "But the gap was there - I had more speed, I would have made the corner".
Raikkonen also felt Verstappen was fully to blame for their tangle, which happened when the Red Bull ran off the road at the chicane on the opening lap while third then banged wheels with the Ferrari as it rejoined. "I did long distance running when I was a kid, cross country, and you just run out of stamina to keep hold with those who, for whatever reason, had the stamina at the time".
