Kimi Räikkönen makes Lewis Hamilton wait for F1 title with US GP win
• Ferrari driver seals his first victory in 113 races in thriller
• Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is second with Hamilton third
Not quite yet. Lewis Hamilton will have to wait a few days longer for his fifth Formula One title after a wild and wonderful US Grand Prix ended with the improbable outcome of a victory for Kimi Räikkönen.
Hamilton needed to outscore Sebastian Vettel by eight points to win the title. There were a dizzying array of permutations as the lead changed hands and Vettel fought his way towards the front after a first-lap collision, with tyre management becoming all-important.
