The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Team have done it again! A fourth consecutive Formula One World Constructors' Championship title is in the bag thanks to Lewis Hamilton's victory, and Valtteri Bottas' fifth place, in the 2017 United States Grand Prix.
The points haul from Austin, Texas, means the Silver Arrows have secured the title with three races still to go. No wonder, then, that Lewis was over the moon with the achievement; especially given Ferrari's revival during the second half of the season.
Lewis said: "This is the best team in the world, clearly. And as we've shown in winning the constructors’ championship; with the greatest group of people working so diligently. This year they've taken another step in their drive; their passion; what they love doing, and found a new love. That spreads through the factory. The fact we're fighting another team has caused that change. A big congratulations to everyone.
"Years ago I said in a meeting with Toto, one day you're going to need me when it comes to fighting Ferrari, and I'm going to be the one fighting on the wire with Sebastian. And it's crazy today, I was like 'told you so'!"
