Hamilton Crowned 2015 and Third F1 World Title

Lewis Hamilton celebrates becoming only the second Briton to win three F1 world titles.

Lewis Hamilton grabbed on a late error by team-mate Nico Rosberg to win the United States Grand Prix and locked his third F1 drivers championship.

The Brit overtook German with eight laps to go on race when Rosberg locked his tires and weakly watched his team-mate zoom past.

Hamilton had to beat Rosberg and outscore Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel by nine points to wrap up his second consecutive championship with Mercedes. He also won with McLaren in 2008.

The win also gives Hamilton his 21st victory over two seasons and 10th this year. He is the first Formula One driver to win 10 or more races in consecutive seasons.
