Bottas must win and Vettel 9th or lower for Bottas to finish 2nd in the championship

 

Silly Stats

If you were to cover the Yas Marina track with 1kg gold bars you would need 24,298,750, costing a total of £771,339,520,000, sadly still not enough to build the Death Star.

To completely cover the track 5cm deep in sand you would need 485,975,000,000 individual grains of sand.
