2017 US Grand Prix: World championship standings

2017-10-19 10:58

Austin - Formula 1 heads to Texas for the 2017 United States Grand Prix.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton will seek to extend his championship lead at the Circuit of Americas on October 22.

The Mercedes ace leads nearest rival, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, by 59 points with four races remaining and will take this year's Drivers' title if he can outscore him by 16 points.

If Hamilton wins, Vettel must finish in the top five to keep his own challenge alive - a seemingly straightforward prospect if he and Ferrari can avoid the mishaps that have afflicted them in the last four races.
