Race results - United States Grand Prix 2015 - Hamilton takes the win and the title in US race

Hamilton scored the race win and wrapped up the 2015 championship campaign, after battling bast teammate Nico Rosberg at the first corner of the race. There was a virtual safety car period due to Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson clashing their Saubers together, and an actual safety car after Ericsson retired, after which Hamilton relinquished his lead.

However, pit stop strategy put him back into the lead of the race and he took the victory with Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel joining him on the podium.
