No last-lap drama this time! Max Verstappen can be crowned F1’s earliest champion in 20 YEARS if cards fall his way in Singapore but he’ll need a favour from Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez to do it … how he can win his second title this weekend

A look through Formula One’s history books tells us that few manage to clinch the world title with much of the season left to spare. As things stand four drivers mathematically speaking remain in contention for the world title: Verstappen, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Red Bull’s Sergio Perez and Mercedes’ George Russell. There is an inevitability that Verstappen will coast his way to world title No 2 but if he can pull it off – albeit against the odds – in Singapore, it would be the earliest finish to a season in 20 years. The iconic German driver wrapped his title up that season in July with six races still remaining. But Verstappen is closer than most and would equal Nigel Mansell’s record of winning with five races remaining after the Brit’s success back in 1992. Take the first part, Verstappen winning the race, the one bit he can control.
