Bottas was faster all weekend. Besides, they can give him one or two wins late in the season to keep him happy.

The title is just a formality at this point. Even if Bottas wins every remaining race and takes fastest lap, Lewis only needs top-five finishes.

Hamilton was still about 5-6 seconds ahead with healthy tires. The only reason I can see is that they didn't want Bottas to catch up and the boys to race each other.
So instead they chose to do a really obvious thing, thinking they could pass Vettel with fresh softs and salvage a 1-2 finish. But Vettel brought his defense A-game to Japan and shut Merc out; that was really satisfying to watch.

Also props to Ricciardo for tearing through the grid, too.
