Hamilton wins last eight races of season, says Wikipedia

If Wikipedia’s prediction is to be believed, Lewis Hamilton is set to clinch the championship this season.

The online encyclopaedia, an open domain where users can edit content, hosts a page summarising the 2014 Formula One season with reports to each race, standings and a brief about the campaign.

Wikipedia’s content has frequently been under fire and it was highlighted when its ‘2014 Formula One season’ page was edited to show Hamilton winning all the remaining eight races of the season while his title rival Nico Rosberg retiring from those Grands Prix.

The obvious mysterious fan of the Briton, however, didn’t bother to predict the results of the remaining 20 drivers, and neither was the total tally for Hamilton updated at the end of the row.

The page has since been corrected.

DOUBLE POINTS FARCE

Although that may be a bit funny, what is not even remotely humorous is that Hamilton can still lose the title if he were to win 12 of the 19 races this season.

With the farcical double points awarded in the final race in Abu Dhabi, Rosberg can still win the title should he finish second to Hamilton in the remaining races and emerge victorious at the season-finale.

This will happen if Hamilton finishes eighth or below at Yas Marina.

Driver Points BEL ITA SIN JPN RUS USA BRA ABD Total
ROS 202 18 18 18 18 18 18 18 50 378
HAM 191 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 8 374

The final tally in that theoretical scenario would mean Rosberg claims the title by four points with five wins, against Hamilton’s 12.
