As far as Max was concerned it was in all a days work for him looking fresh as a daisy on the podium unlike poor Checo who did a sterling job under the circumstances.

Really? I know it's click bait but there are still 5 races left...ANYTHING can happen...With such a SLIM lead my money is still on MB & HAM.

To be the man, you gotta beat the man IMHO. Most likely that chance won't come until the last race of the year. It's gonna be FUN!!!

It'll be your bad you done wrong there Max was ill also during the US race though Checo was much worse and he drove the race of his life, don't go on that boat ride that thinks oh 'hammy always gets it in the end'.

I never take the singular "Hammy" road. It's a team sport so I'm concerned about "Hammy + Mercedes" combo.

Don't wanna jinx Max but Honda is due for a kablamo. Plus, I'm not sold on which car is faster or MBs ICE problems.

The season will probably come down to a crash or DNF

Merc have the faster car in what can be described as fastest on a straight but and it's a big but there are drawbacks and these play on Ham's mind a lot and Max knows this,I will take it one race at a time not what may happen over the next five.
Mexico next and RB should have the upper hand there where at Austin it should have been Ham and Merc failed with a perfect car

I've never been able to do that but it does sound more enjoyable!

I've always been the pessimist type waiting for the wheels to fall off.

In the last 5 races , MAX just needs 1 victory and 4 podiums to take the WDC .
Let's keep in mind that COTA is/was a Merc circuit ...

•Mexico ? => Red Bull circuit
•Brazil ? => Red Bull circuit

If MAX wasn't rammed off track (3 DNF) by the Mercedes BlitzKrieg.
MAX was 'now already the new '21 WDC .

It's what ignored and what the MIB get away with, what Bot and Ham did on purpose.

All of them? If he gets a DNF and Max wins, he's toast.

Assuming Max wins the next three and Lewis comes in second with fastest lap, that is only a 30 point lead for Max with two races left. So even then it's not a given.
