Running the Numbers – How Can Hamilton Still Take the 2016 F1 Drivers’ Championship?

Way back in 2012, I posted a simple R script for trying to work out the finishing combinations in the last two races of that year’s F1 season for Fernando Alonso and Sebastien Vettel to explore the circumstances under which Alonso could take the championship (Paths to the F1 2012 Championship Based on How They Might Finish in the US Grand Prix); I also put together a simple shiny version of the script to make it bit more app like (Interactive Scenarios With Shiny – The Race to the F1 2012 Drivers’ Championship), which I also updated for the 2014 season (F1 Championship Race, 2014 – Winning Combinations…).

And now we come to 2016, and once again, with two races to go, there are two drivers in with a chance of winning overall… But what race finishing combinations could see Hamilton make a last stand and reclaim his title? The  F1 Drivers’ Championship Scenarios, 2016 shiny app will show you…
