- If Verstappen wins with the fastest lap and Hamilton finishes sixth or reaches the finish line later.
- If the Red Bull Racing driver finishes first and the Mercedes F1 driver finishes seventh or lower.
- If the Dutchman finished second with the fastest lap and the Brit finishes 10th or even lower.
- If the Dutch driver ends the race second and at the same time the British racer does not score any points, Verstappen will win this one.
- If the winner of the title is not decided in this Grand Prix, the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi will act as the decider.
