The world championship battle between Hamilton and Vettel looked like it was going to come right down to the final laps of the Mexican Grand Prix, but actually about halfway through, Hamilton's victory was almost never in doubt. Both drivers had to fight through the field and Vettel was aiming for second place - a position which was held by Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas. And thus, getting no further than fourth, Vettel had to concede to Lewis, crowning the Brit with his fourth world title.

Elsewhere, Lance Stroll was the only driver to move on the chart, jumping up two positions, and crucially moving four points ahead of teammate Felipe Massa.
