Let’s be honest the title is over but imagine if this was the situation in Suzuka…
Final lap and Hamilton is in 1st place, Button second and Vettel has retired.
Honestly, I don’t think it will come to that. Based on their relative performances of late, I’d say it’s far more likely that Hamilton will not be leading the Japanese Grand Prix, and therefore, it won’t be a problem.
I also believe that Hamilton would only let Button through if Jenson had a realistic chance of winning the title.
Well, Button wouldn’t get the “more-realistic” chance without Vettel moving over. If Vettel fails to score and Button wins, the championship cannot be settled in South Korea because Vettel will be twenty-six points away from sealing the title.
