Hamilton wins fourth F1 championship, Verstappen wins Mexican Grand Prix

Mexico City ,

Lewis Hamilton became Britain’s first four-times Formula One world champion at the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday despite enduring his worst race of the season.
In a race won by Red Bull’s Dutch 20-year-old Max Verstappen, the 32-year-old Mercedes driver fought back from last place to ninth after a first lap collision with Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel.
Vettel, the only man who could have denied him the championship, started on pole position and finished fourth after having to pit for a new front wing at the end of the first lap and dropping to 19th. Hamilton now has an unassailable lead of 56 points with two races, worth a total of 50, remaining.
