Hamilton wins third F1 title with USGP victory

Lewis Hamilton has made history by becoming the first British Formula One driver to win back-to-back titles.

The Mercedes racer claimed his third world drivers’ championship at the US Grand Prix in Texas, finishing ahead of his two main rivals, team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton got the jump on Rosberg – who started the race on pole – at the first turn of an action-packed race.

“It’s the greatest moment of my life,” a tearful Hamilton told his team on the radio on hearing the news. “Thank you so much for everything you guys do. I am so grateful. To my family, I love you all. Thank you.”
