USGP Preview: Hamilton could lock up title in Austin
  99.99% chance he will be 2017 World Champion

Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff says: Still four races to go and 100 points to score: we can take nothing for granted as we fly to Austin this week. We approach every race with a healthy dose of skepticism rather than wishful thinking, and our focus must be on making sure we score every point within our reach this weekend in Austin.  Since we began the final flyaway leg of the season, we have seen a strong points swing in our favor in both championships.

Hamilton holds off Verstappen to win Japanese GP
  Ferrari again fails Vettel

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton toyed with Red Bull ace Max Verstappen all race long and led every lap (except for pitstops) to win the Japanese GP at Suzuka. Daniel Riccardo held off Valtteri Bottas for the final podium finish while Kimi Raikkonen came back from 14th on lap 1 to round out the top-5. But the big story was Sebastian Vettel. His Ferrari engine had a problem on lap 1 and he was out of the race on lap 4.

Mercedes drivers qualify 1-2 at Suzuka
  Hamilton and Bottas 1-2, Vettel 3rd

Using the superior Aldo Costa designed Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton earned his 71st pole position - and his first at Suzuka - in qualifying for the Japanese GP. Teammate Valtteri Bottas was second, but a gearbox penalty for the Finn means it’s Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel who will start alongside Hamilton on the front row. Fourth and fifth fastest were the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, followed by Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, who like Bottas has a five-place gearbox penalty.

Verstappen defeats Hamilton in Malaysia
  As Vettel storms from last to 4th

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen soundly beat Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in Sunday’s 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix. Teammate Daniel Ricciardo held off Sebastian Vettel for third, the Ferrari driver narrowly missing out on a podium having started from the back of the grid. In a bizarre post-race twist, Vettel and Lance Stroll collided after the checkered flag, ripping the left-rear wheel from the Ferrari. Stewards are investigating the incident, that saw the Billionaire ride-buyer severely damage the Ferrari.

  Raikkonen to start 2nd, Vettel last

With his championship rival out of qualifying due to engine problems, Lewis Hamilton eased to his 70th pole position at Sepang in qualifying for the final ever Malaysian Grand Prix. Hamilton's time of 1m30.076s just nipped Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari by 0.045s. Sandbagging on Friday, the Mercedes came good on Saturday and shot right to the top when qualifying began and led every session. Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo will start 3rd and 4th with Valtteri Bottas rounding out the top-5 for Mercedes.
