It will always be close. Max's engine is getting old too so there's no guarantee it can run at full beans for the last bit of races so who knows if he can win all of them - Lewis might be able to win some too and that will make it even closer. Then if RB decides to try and push Max's pu to keep up they might DNF or have to take an engine penalty. So it really is a game of chess right now.

The micro-cracks in the Merc PU's , that's the game of chess right now ..

Mercedes has to push their PU's beyond the limits to beat the leader MAX in the WDC !

It's more like Russian Roulette , pulling the trigger with one bullet in the chamber .
The question Isn't , will it blow ? The question is "WHEN" it will blow ?
And the clock is ticking ...With the upcoming 'Red Bull race tracks in Mexico and Brazil !

Not bad for a energy drink manufacturer , and a driver who got 3 'DNF by the Mercedes BlitzKrieg and still is leading the WDC with 12 points !
In normal circumstances MAX would lead the WDC by at least 70 points !
And HAM's 21 WDC was already over ...

I'm pretty sure , Mercedes lost the '21 WDC in COTA ..
And of course... The reason why is : "MAX"

I agree completely .

Just like he was very lucky at Imola and Silverstone to repair his car under the Red Flag situation .

Once his CAR was repaired , the race re-started ..
It was like the FIA was waiting for him ...

Is HAM's car already repaired ?
OK. Then we can re-start the race !

Merc's rear-squat suspension and the flexible front wing ?
The FIA didn't even looked at it...

#FIAMercedes

MAX's car got already 3 FIA inspections !

True fans will not forget the loathsome decisions by Mikey especially at Silverstone delaying race while Hams car was repaired allowing him to win easily with the over the top celebrations on the podium.

Indy Car 500 winner and now steward Arie Luyendyk doesn't understand Mikey's decisions especially at Silverstone to delay race allowing Hams car to be repaired then going on to win easily with the over the top celebrations on the podium.

It's 'very quiet over here , probably by the multi new COVID outbreaks ..It's going very bad !

The weekend is more like a recovery period from a super-busy week at the company .

Over here in and outside , It's more like "A Quiet Place" Part 1 & 2
Of course without the monsters !
