Both Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel are vying for the adage of the youngest ever triple world champion, with the battle for the crown reaching the season-finale at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The Red Bull driver has a clear advantage, not just with his convenient 13 point buffer but also the best car on the grid. The Ferrari meanwhile is anything but a prancing horse with Alonso flogging the mule throughout the 19 races so far.
Vettel can win his third straight championship this weekend by:
- Finishing in the top four.
- Finishing fifth, sixth or seventh, provided Alonso fails to win the race.
- Finishing eighth or ninth and Alonso ending up third or lower.
- Finishing tenth or beyond and Alonso failing to secure a top three place.
Alonso’s chances are much more limited but he has an outside chance of claiming the crown by:
- Winning the race, provided Vettel is fifth or lower.
- Finishing second with Vettel finishing eighth or lower.
- Finishing third, if Vettel is tenth or lower.
