With two races to go in the 2011 F1 season and Jenson Button ahead of Lewis Hamilton by 38 points, we’re running a competition to predict what the final points position will be between the two McLaren team mates after the final race in Brazil.
Hamilton had the edge during the first two thirds of the season then Button got in front at the Belgian Grand Prix and since then his run of podiums and a win in Japan have eased him clear, while Hamilton has been involved in collisions and hasn’t hauled in the points.
Hamilton, who has never been beaten by a team mate in a championship before, this weekend dismissed team boss Martin Whitmarsh’s suggestion that Button’s form was unsettling him as “rubbish”. (see separate story below)
So can he claw back the gap? Or will Button extend it? There are a maximum 50 points on the table for the final two races. You get 18pts for second place in a Grand Prix and 15pts for third place.

The competition closes at midnight UK time on 26th November. The first registered correct answer will win a full size official cinema poster of the Senna movie – not easy to come by. The movie is now out on DVD and Blu ray.
