Hamilton takes title race to final weekend

Lewis Hamilton took a long awaited victory in Brazil as the weather played havoc throughout the afternoon.

After a delay to the start in Interlagos proceedings got underway behind the safety car before we eventually went racing seven laps in.

Whilst the Briton kept his cool throughout chaos reigned behind.  The likes of Kimi Raikkonen, Marcus Ericsson and home favourite Felipe Massa all lost control of their cars in the wet and found the wall whilst two red flags were also issued in a marathon Grand Prix.

Hamilton’s championship rival, Nico Rosberg, would finish second after a brief interlude from the ever improving Max Verstappen who only saw a combination of heavier rain and the safety car interrupt a wonderful drive.

The Dutchman would finish third after having to fight back through the field due to a late tyre change thanks to the ever-changing conditions but it was a drive to savour no less.

It’s Hamilton, though, who will be the happiest of the lot as he cut Rosberg’s championship lead to twelve points and that ensures we’ll have a winner takes all scenario in Abu Dhabi on the 27th.
