Hamilton takes out US Grand Prix, Ricciardo in third

Lewis Hamilton has produced a flawless performance to claim yet another victory at the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

Hamilton started from pole and led from start to finish, taking the win from Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Rosberg lost a spot at the start but recovered to finish around 4.520 seconds behind Hamilton with Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo completing the podium in third.


Hamilton has now won four of the five US Grands Prix and his latest win could be crucial is he’s any chance to clinch the 2016 championship.

Rosberg is still well ahead in the standings, leading Hamilton by 26 points with three races remaining.

He could clinch the title next week in Mexico if he wins and Hamilton finishes outside the top 10.
