Lewis Hamilton wins 2015 Formula One world title


Lewis Hamilton has been crowned Formula One world champion after winning the United States Grand Prix in the most dramatic of circumstances. 

Nico Rosberg appeared on course to postpone his team-mate’s title celebrations for one more race, but the German made an unforced error with just seven laps remaining to allow Hamilton to take the lead.

Sebastian Vettel fought his way back from 13th to finish third in one of the best races in recent memory but it was not enough to prevent Hamilton from amounting an unassailable lead in the championship with three races to spare.

An emotional Hamilton struggled for words inside his crash helmet after he was informed he had seen off Vettel and Rosberg to win this year’s crown.

“This is the greatest moment of my life,” he eventually said over the team radio. “To my family, I love you all.”

On his return to the pits, Hamilton leapt out of his Mercedes before running to his team. The Brit now joins his idol Ayrton Senna and Sir Jackie Stewart with three titles to his name. He also becomes the first British driver to successfully defend his Formula One crown.
