It'll be decided in Q3 to a large degree. I have no doubt that Nico will have been told in the firmest way that punting off Lewis would be a very bad thing. It would win Nico the title, true, but at what cost to the team relationship?
Lewis needs to win, Nico to come only second, so slotting in to second shouldn't be an issue for Nico. This presupposes that Nico isn't already ahead by the first corner, of course. Statistically, you'd expect Nico to be leading out of T1. In which case it will be interesting to see what happens at the end of the following straight.
The temptation to "do a Michael" will be enormous...
I expect Nico to win here, ceteris paribus
, which will mean he'd just need a podium finish at the last race to take the season.
It's Nico's for the taking: Lewis can do nothing to positively change his own chances. Lewis needs Nico to have a disaster and that's not likely.
