Patience is a virtue. Lewis Hamilton will have to wait until the upcoming United States Grand Prix to be crowned Formula One World Champion for a sixth time, despite his victory in the Mexico GP last weekend.
Lewis defied the odds to execute a one-stop strategy to perfection as he crossed the line ahead of Sebastian Vettel to take his 10th win of the season for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Team.
However, his Silver Arrows teammate, Valtteri Bottas - the only man who can stop Lewis from winning the title - was third to ensure the title race rolls over to Austin. And the 34-year-old has reason to feel optimistic heading to the United States for he has won five of the seven times the race has been held at the Circuit of the Americas.
Lewis said: "America is obviously an exciting market for me. The most important one for me is England. I'm constantly trying to grow with the fan base we have in the UK and I think the Silverstone Grand Prix is obviously spectacular, but the US is getting more and more popular there.
"I've done quite a few shows out there and definitely becoming more and more known in the States but it's quite a diverse country. I think my story and my family's story is something that a lot of people in different countries can relate to. America's always a cool place to live. They do it their own way, it's different.
"The track is fantastic and it's been a good hunting ground for me so very excited to go there and who knows whether we can get the job done, who knows? We'll hopefully have a good race there.”
