It seems that Sebastian Vettel
of Ferrari is not going to let Lewis Hamilton win the 2017 F1 series with ease.
Vettel, in fact, led the opening five laps of the race that was held on October
22, 2017 in Austin, United States. But at the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix it
was Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton who went on to dominate the race and finally win
the race with a 10 second lead over Vettel.
Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen came
in third, followed by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. With this, Mercedes has secured
the 2017 constructors’ crown. As for the drivers, the next weekend’s round in
Mexico will decide the 2017 hero. Force India’s Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez
came in 6th and 8th respectively, bringing home vital
points for the team.

In fact, Verstappen was
penalised with 5 seconds time penalty for leaving the track while passing
Raikkonen which resulted in him missing a definite podium. He had started 16th
and had made up lost ground during the race. His teammate Daniel Ricciardo had
to retire early in the race because of engine woes.. Renault new boy Carlos
Sainz, like Verstappen saw his team mate, Nico Hulkenberg, retire.
Toro Rosso’s rookie driver Brendon
Hartley came in 13th on his F1 debut.
Lewis (331 points) leads the
Drivers’ Championship by 66 points from Sebastian Vettel (265 points), with
Valtteri (244 points) a further 21 points behind in P3 and with 75 points
remaining to be scored in the 2017 season.
