Will 2009 champion win with the lowest points total since 2003 ?

Only Button can now score more points than Schumacher in 2003

Only Button can now score more points than Schumacher in 2003

Since the introduction of current points scoring system in 2003 the point scores of F1 drivers champions varied from 93 points (Schumacher in 2003) to 148 (Schumacher in 2004). The world champions failed to reach 100 points mark only twice (Schumacher in 2003 and Hamilton in 2008).


There are only 3 drivers left to fight it out for 2009 title. With only 20 more points available the maximum they can reach is 105 points for Button, 91 points for Barrichello, 89 points for Vettel. Barrichello and Vettel have no longer chance to score more points than Schumacher in 2003. Jenson Button would have to score 8 points in next two races to at least equal Schumacher’s 2003 result.

Button’s only 8 or more points combo from 2 consecutive races since his last win (Turkey) was 8 points (2nd place) at Monza (following the DNF at Spa) and 4 points (5th place) in Singapore.

    I’m actually rooting for Barrichello to come through and snatch the championship away from Button.  What a story that would be…

    I agree that would be pretty wild… unfortunately I don’t think it is likely. Rubens may outscore Button but only by a point or two. both will get beaten by Hamilton and his Microsoft Kers (“just press ctrl-alt-del”). Ultimately Lewis will do the patriotic thing and prevent Vettel from taking the WDC from Button.
