Only two names would be sufficient for your poll. It will be Hamilton or Vettel.
That is for me the big downside of F1 racing: Individual races can be interesting to watch, but for the championship the relatively big performance gabs of the engines used by the different teams is decisive in the end.
Verstappen is probably the best driver of them all at the moment, but he hasn't got the best engine, so no chance to become world champion this season (or next season, or Honda has to work miracles in the next few months).

Extremely unlikely, but still something could happen to any of them or both. Like an accident, a penalty, or bad luck. Let's no forget the engine cycle is over for almost all pilots, if I'm not mistaken. Soon they will have to decide between using a new engine with a severe penalty or taking a risk with a very used engine.

Yes, but that is the same story for all of them.
Red Bull is taking the stupid penalties this race. Others will follow soon.

Another boring race. Red Bull recovered their natural position in only 8 laps, which says a lot about the difference between 3 teams and the others.
Vettel did nothing wrong, on the contrary he fought his best, but the track ( favorable to Mercedes ) didn't give any chance to them, nor to the show.

The U,S. GP gave us a surprise winner and 2 great charges from the back. Vettels challenge is still alive but just barely!
