F1 2016: Lewis Hamilton takes victory at US GP
Mercedes AMG F1 team-mate, Nico Rosberg, finishes second; Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo finishes third
Lewis Hamilton's win at the 2016 US GP at the Circuit of the Americas has helped him keep alive his hopes of a third straight driver's championship title for Mercedes, and his fourth title overall. The British driver took a fine lights-to-flag win, and the 25 points that this win earned him have helped dent the lead that his team-mate Nico Rosberg has in the championship standings. After the US GP, Rosberg now leads with 331 points, while Hamilton, with 305 points is merely 26 points adrift. There are three races still to go in the 2016...
