You can just feel the tension.
Well it’s official. British Formula 1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton has officially been crowned a triple Formula 1 World Champion following a dramatic victory at the United States Grand Prix (USGP). This is Hamilton’s second consecutive win of the USGP, his third F1 championship title, and second racing title for Mercedes AMG. Hamilton’s teammate, Nico Rosberg, finished in second place, giving Mercedes AMG the top two slots. However, Hamilton’s first place finish was not without some drama.
In order to clinch the win, Hamilton pushed Rosberg wide on the first corner of the race and overtook him. There were clearly bitter feelings between the two as they prepared to stand on the winners’ podium. Hamilton was filmed throwing a second place hat at Rosberg whose response pretty much tells the whole story.
