Hamilton steals US win
Hamilton patiently waited behind the German until the moment was right, when he was ruthless and efficient.
Rosberg couldn’t make his tyres work in the middle stint and Hamilton reeled him in and muscled his way past at the hairpin. In the last few laps Rosberg set some hot times as he attempted to catch Hamilton but he failed to do so.
Hamilton now has a 24 point lead in the standings, and is on course for his second world championship win.
After the re-start Rosberg drove away but in the middle stint he struggled on his tyres and with understeer. Hamilton didn’t let the chance pass him by, showing the killer instinct which has seen him win ten races this season.
There was some great action all over the track, as different strategies were played out. At the end of the race there was a titanic battle for the lower end of the points with Jenson Button, Pastor Maldonado and Jean-Eric Vergne involved.
Maldonado picked up two different penalties during the race for speed offences. However, he scored his first point of the season for a well-deserved tenth.
