Lewis Hamilton wins US Grand Prix 

Lewis Hamilton won his first race for three months – and his 50th overall – when he beat his arch-rival Nico Rosberg into second place in the US Grand Prix. It was Hamilton’s first victory since his dominating performance won him the German Grand Prix at the end of July and it cut Rosberg’s lead in the world championship from 33 to 26 points with three races to go, starting in Mexico next weekend.

It was Hamilton’s fourth victory in the five races that have been held here. It was here, of course, that he clinched his third world title a year ago – remember the cap-throwing scenes between the two Mercedes drivers that followed the race then in his Mercedes.
