Dominant Lewis Hamilton earned his laps of honour in US Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton warned he was not expecting miracles at the US Grand Prix, where he sought a remarkable sixth Formula One world championship. Divine intervention was, of course, unnecessary as he duly took the title to stand alone behind only Michael Schumacher as the most successful driver in history. Hamilton has comprehensively proved this season that he owes nothing to fortune or chance but rather is a man performing on a level apart from other mortals.

Hamilton would dearly have liked to seal his sixth title with a win but second place proved more than enough and followed, appropriately, a fiercely determined drive at the Circuit of the Americas that summed up why the championship was his and deservedly so.
