The new leader also has the second highest score in the Constructors’ Championship (2,837 points), but only one of his competitors has more points than him.
This is the third time the two have met in the drivers’ championship, with the first time coming in 2016 when the pair had a strong run with Mercedes at the beginning of the season.
In 2016, the team had to wait until the penultimate race of the championship to claim the title, when they were knocked out in the opening race by Red Bull Racing.
A strong performance in the first race in Melbourne put the team on the podium and the win at the race was crucial to their title claim.
Ricciardo has since finished the season in the top five with a 3rd place finish in the two races that followed in 2017.
With a new generation of driver coming into the championship, the Lexington squad will have to be able to cope with the increased pressure.

It will be interesting to see if Vettel and Vettel will be able keep up their form as they enter the final race of 2017.
