Lewis Hamilton now needs a minor miracle to win the title

Immediately after the Italian Grand Prix, a clearly frustrated Lewis Hamilton let his emotions get the better of him and conceded to BBC Sport that his title chances were over.

He had lost his radio communication, a driver’s lifeline to his team, during the race and was effectively driving blind in having to make his own calls on when to push and when to pit.

That he still finished ninth was a herculean effort in itself.

Having had time to cool off and reflect, Hamilton told reporters he wasn’t giving up on the title just yet although he would have to win practically every race.

Of course, it’s going to be a massively tall order with Hamilton now 81 points behind championship leader Sebastian Vettel.

History will show Hamilton that overhauling a huge points margin in the second half of the season is possible as these five late title charges go to show.
