Rob Huff took pole position for Macau with Muller second and Menu third. Tarquini is 4th and Monteiro is an impressive 5th in the Honda having looked good throughout practice. What this means is that the championship now looks like this.
It’s still important that Huff doesn’t end the weekend tied on points with Muller as that won’t secure him the title, Muller will have more race wins even if Huffy wins both Macau races. So to win the championship in Race 1, here is what Huffy has to do.
Huff has to finish on the podium, regardless of where the others end up.
If he finishes 4th or 5th, Menu must finish no higher than second even if Muller finishes 1st.
If Huff finishes 6th or 7th, Muller and Menu must finish no higher than second.
If Huff finishes 8th, Muller must finish no higher than 2nd and Menu no higher than 3rd.
If Huff finishes 9th, Muller must finish no higher than 2nd and Menu must finish off the podium.
If Huff finishes 10th or fails to score, Muller must finish no higher than 3rd and Menu must be off the podium.
So Muller and Menu really need to win this one with Huff finishing off the podium to take this into the last race.
