If Lewis Hamilton finishes on the podium in Belgium, Sergey Sirotkin will become mathematically ineligible to win the World Drivers’ Championship.

Lewis Hamilton currently has 213 points, and thus has a 213 point lead over Sergey Sirotkin. With 9 races left, Sirotkin could get a maximum of 225 points from here. If he does, and Lewis finishes 4th in Belgium, getting 12 points, and scores 0 points at the remaining 8 races, they could potentially tie, in which case Sirotkin’s 9 wins would win the tiebreaker against Hamilton’s 5. Therefore, to lock Sirotkin out, Hamilton would need to finish 3rd, moving his final total to 228 points, which Sirotkin could not beat.

*I just realised, this would also make Brendon Hartley mathematically ineligible, as 9 wins for him would put him at 227 points.
