Vettel leads, Webber on second...

What are the permutation possibilities to decide WDC? What may possibly happens?

The most obvious thing would be for Webber to "leave his braking too late" and wipe out his team-mate.

Which might let Hamilton through to an unlikely WDC.

That is the most unlikely case.

Sounds like a plan. :)

If that was the situation then I think it is fair to say that neither driver would be able to hear their radios in case they were asked to slow down/hold station.

I could be wrong, but I think they'd finish on equal points, vettel is champion due to more wins.

The permutations are quite simple, if Fernando finishes 5th or below and Vettel wins then Vettel is world champion irrespective of where Webber finishes.

It has to be remembered that F1 cars today are fueled 'short'. They dont have enough fuel to get to the end of the race if they run flat out the whole way.
Any driver who chooses not to listen to 'slow down' orders will find themselves walking back to the pits.

Such an amazing way to implement team order actually.
