Hamilton takes fifth F1 title as Verstappen wins in Mexico

Formula One World Championship

Starting in third, the Briton was the fastest out of his marks, and cut through the middle of Ricciardo and his Red Bull team-mate Verstappen to momentarily take the lead on the 220mph, 900-yard charge to the first braking zone.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton celebrates after winning the World Championship, Formula One F1, Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mexico City, Mexico.

Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes clinched a fifth Formula One world title with two races to spare on Sunday by finishing fourth at the Mexican Grand Prix won by Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

"You know, honestly, now where I am, I don't see the point of coming on Sunday".

"Which is why we put an bad lot of focus into this race, taking the penalties to get another B spec into the pool to have for this weekend". "But yeah, I held a lot in, I've got to save some energy for tomorrow", he told reporters after calming down a bit.

Rosberg said it was irrelevant that Hamilton sealed the title with a disappointing race where Mercedes was way off the pace of Red Bull and Ferrari.

Patriots interested in Broncos' Thomas, Lions' Tate
The report came shortly after news broke that Houston acquired star receiver Demaryius Thomas from the Denver Broncos . Thomas will likely be a one-season rental, as his contract has an opt-out clause at the end of the 2018 season.

But the team orders came, enduring Hamilton would earn seven extra points and taking much of the air out of Vettel and Ferrari's fight.

Hamilton missed his chance to win the title last week at the U.S. Grand Prix when he finished third.

Things have not always gone Hamilton's way - think Australia, Austria and Belgium - but enough key moments have fallen in his favour.

In the end it was just 0.026 seconds separating the two Bulls.

"The whole qualifying was c***", the 21-year-old said. "We were struggling. I was trying to hold on and bring the vehicle home". I feel honored to have my name alongside his. Vettel won all his championships with Red Bull from 2010-2013. Verstappen is the defending race champion and dominated the three rounds of practice.

"You can hear how happy he was on the slowdown lap ... same auto, same opportunity and Daniel did the better job in Q3 (final qualifying)", he added. A puncture kyboshed Bottas, gifting Hamilton a timely win after cameo roles to leading man Vettel in Australia and Bahrain and to Daniel Ricciardo in China. "There's two more races".

For Denver, this is a white flag on a 3-5 season, saves them money and allows rookie Courtland Sutton to see the field more . But by moving Thomas, at the very least you'll free up roster space for younger players, he said.

"The frustration for us as a Team is that we didn't have both drivers on the podium".

"You could see from the moment he arrived at the track this morning, you could see a real determination in his eyes", said team boss Christian Horner.

"I'm delighted the Team secured victory today, but it's bittersweet to have lost Daniel when we looked set for a 1-2", Horned posted on Instagram. But it was a run of wins over the second half of the season that sent Hamilton to Mexico City all but assured of the championship.

He'll want to be cautious from the start as the cars barrel through the opening long run into the first turn.

But the German could only manage second place, meaning Hamilton's fourth-place finish was inconsequential in his bid to retain the crown.

Vettel portrayed a crestfallen figure on Sunday night, and there can be little denying that the reputation of a driver, one which can boast 52 wins and four championships, has taken a severe battering. "Everyone is going to be barreling into turn one".
