Webber Can Relax. Or Can He?

Hamilton and Button must be thinking at least passingly of the DNFs they have had in recent races.
Had Button not been speared by Vettel at the Bus Stop in Spa, he would still be looking strong.  If Hamilton had not tangled with Massa at Monza and then Webber in Singapore then he would too.

The last three races are at Korea and Brazil then Abu Dhabi for the final.

If Vettel finishes first and Webber second in each race then they will enter the last race on equal points.

So it will then be whoever finishes ahead of the other at Yas Marina who will be champion.

This scenario appears unlikely.  Either Alonso or Hamilton or Button must surely win one of the next two races.

If alternatively one of them comes in second and pushes Vettel into third they will be assisting Webber who holds a 14 point lead right now.

A couple of wins by Hamilton will put him in contention to become champion in the last race and Alonso is on equal points with Vettel so any good result by him will assist him toward a decisive last race.

So the only man who can relax in any way while others fight it out behind him is Webber.  But if he has a DNF...
