Lewis Hamilton has a 59-point lead with just four races left on the 2017 calendar, but will the title be decided in the next race or will the wait go on a little longer?
Hamilton can actually clinch his fourth World Championship crown in Austin if he wins the race and Vettel finishes lower than fifth. He could also get the job if he comes home second and Vettel is lower than P9.
But, following the United States Grand Prix on October 22, there is still Mexico (Oct 29), Brazil (Nov 12) and Abu Dhabi (Nov 26) to come if Ferrari can overcome their slump and extend this title race further.
