With Mercedes having tied up the constructors title last time out, the race in Austin, Texas on Sunday, is all about the drivers – with Lewis Hamilton looking to take a huge step towards his second world title.
The 29-year-old currently holds a 17 point advantage over teammate Nico Rosberg with just three races remaining, the last of which is worth double points, meaning there are still 100 points available.
Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo is the only other driver mathematically still in it, but such is Mercedes’ advantage over the field and the sizeable points gap between them – Ricciardo trails Hamilton by 92 points – it’s essentially a two-horse race.
Rosberg is very much on the back foot, having made errors in Italy, when he locked up to gift Hamilton the lead as the Briton hunted him down, and Russia, when he overcooked it at Turn One, forcing an early stop and dropping him out of contention for the win.
There was also the comprehensive defeat in Japan, when he had no answer to Hamilton’s pace, and the reliability issues that caused his second retirement of the season in Singapore.
