How can Hamilton win the title?

Simply put, by finishing eighth or better - and even were he ninth or worse, Valtteri Bottas would need to win the race.

If Hamilton finishes ninth, earning two points, the title race would continue to Brazil in the event of a Bottas win. It would not matter whether the Finn took the bonus point for fastest lap, nor would it matter if Hamilton did.

It is therefore this simple: the only way Hamilton fails to take the title this weekend is if Bottas wins the grand prix, and he finishes ninth or worse.
