Be great for him to get a 5th. Be an interesting race now between Lewis and Seb to see who can match Fangio first...or will max spoil the party?

Next season is nicely set up, regarding which of them can win 5 WDCs. If Vertappen were to win, he would be the youngest ever to win it, which would be a feat in itself and it would bring RBR right back into the Mix and break Mercedes' dominance. Though having said that, I would like to see Vettel win, only because a Ferrari driver hasn't won the WDC, since Raikkonen in 2007 and I don't see Kimi winning a second championship but I could be wrong.

Good job. He kept his head whilst his main rival did not.

Lewis does seem to make a meal of his end-of-season races, when the pressure starts to come off. He can't really be feeling very pleased with the way he confirmed his 4th championship, but he can be very proud of the season as a whole. Championships are won over the long haul.

Remember back in Hungary when we were all wondering whether the three points given up to return the place to Valtteri would cost Lewis the championship? Now it's looking like a great move for Valtteri! Making 15 points over Seb in two races seems a lot easier that 18. This could yet be a Mercedes one-two.

What's the plan, for him to retire until someone as good in a decent car comes along?

He should keep trying and keep winning.

Wasn't quite the classic title fight we were hoping for, but take nothing away from Lewis, he's really be on it pretty much all season

Yes congratulations to Lewis, bloody good driver and seems to be maturing in the last half of the season. I hope he goes on to more championships but next year he may well have two other drivers to contend with. That should be fun..

As an aside it does demonstrate how underrated Nico was.
