Dario Franchitti has refused to believe that he is the favourite for the 2011 title despite his having an eighteen points lead over his nearest rival Will Power.  Will Power’s last race was marred by a pit lane collision and he finished nineteenth.  However, the complex points system of the Indy Car racing league also has points for leading the most number of laps in a race.  Will Power will have to finish first and lead the most number of laps and Franchitti will have to finish below second position at the up coming Las Vegas finale, for the former to gain the title.  However, Franchitti says that as long as something is mathematically still possible one should not rule that possibility.  If Franchitti wins the title it will be his third straight triumph and fourth overall.
