Lewis Hamilton could be crowned Britain's first four-time Formula One world champion in Texas this weekend while Mercedes are on the brink of a fourth consecutive constructor's title.That compares to 14-1 for Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton's closest rival, and 300-1 on Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.Even if Hamilton wins in Austin, he will be champion only if Vettel finishes no higher than sixth.However, before his nightmare run the German had not finished lower than seventh since Malaysia in October 2016, when he retired with damaged suspension after a collision. He was fourth in Austin last year, when Mercedes had a one-two finish.Hamilton has won eight times and finished second three times in 16 races.
