How Would James Hunt Get on in F1 Today?
  1976 World Champion vs. today's drivers

It's a question asked by fans and pundits about every sport. How would legends of old fare against their current counterparts if they were to compete in today's environment? How would Babe Ruth compare to Mike Trout, or Bjorn Borg to Roger Federer, or Pele to Lionel Messi? So, what of one of Formula 1's most recognizable figures in history, James Hunt? Would the late Brit stand a chance against the likes of compatriot Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso or Max Verstappen in today's Championship?

Vettel holds off Bottas to win Brazilian GP
  Hamilton last to 4th

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel got the jump on polesitter Valtteri Bottas' Mercedes and held the gap ahead by around 2 seconds to win the Brazilian GP at Interlagos - his 5th win of 2017. Kimi Raikkonen came home a close third in the 2nd Ferrari but had to fight to hold off a charging Lewis Hamilton who stared last but had fresher and softer tires at the end.

Hamilton crashes, Bottas takes pole in Brazil
  Vettel to start outside row 1

Lewis Hamilton crashed hard on his out lap of Q1 which meant someone had a chance to sit on pole for the Brazilian GP at Interlagos and his teammate made the most of it. Valtteri Bottas set a new track record of 1m08.322s to win the pole position. How superior is the Aldo Costa car? With the rain falling and everyone else's lap times falling, Bottas went even faster and stole the pole from Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel by 0.038s. The Aldo Costa car makes so much downforce it sucks to the tarmac even on a damp track.

Mercedes aims to crush Ferrari and Red Bull in Brazil
  After taking both 2017 F1 titles

Two races to go, two World Championship titles in the bag... but are the Silver Arrows slowing down? No chance!  Teams up and down the pit lane will already have turned their attention to next season. While in a normal year, each team will have more than half of its factory resource dedicated to the new car by the summer break, the 2017-2018 winter sees stable chassis regulations - meaning many teams were running new parts on their car as late as the US Grand Prix. The Silver Arrows fly to Brazil and Abu Dhabi aiming to win these final two races.

Verstappen wins race, Hamilton title, in Mexico
  Verstappen leads all the way

Max Verstappen's aggressive move in turn 1 at the start of the Mexican GP led to Lewis Hamilton getting a flat tire and Sebastian Vettel's front wing flying through the air, which meant Verstappen had an easy run to victory in Mexico City, his third F1 win. Vettel came back to finish 4th, a valiant effort after that crazy opening lap, but just not enough. Hamilton finished 9th which meant that Hamilton clinched his 4th F1 title.

The Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will start on row 2 with the 2nd Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen rounding out the top-5.
