Hamilton wins the Japanese GP

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton closed in on the Formula 1 title with victory in the Japanese Grand Prix, beating Max Verstappen as Sebastian Vettel’s championship hopes took a blow with retirement.

Vettel was forced to retire from the race he had barely started while Hamilton was victorious ahead despite a late scare as Max Verstappen scented his second win in a week to extend his title lead to a near-impregnable 59 points.

Hamilton will secure the world championship as early as the United States GP later this month if he extends his advantage over Vettel by another 16 points.
