‘All on point’ – Lewis Hamilton praises Mercedes team after coming agonisingly close to beating Verstappen at US GP

LEWIS HAMILTON has praised his Mercedes team after they came incredibly close to a sensational win at the US Grand Prix. Hamilton is still looking for his first win of the season after Verstappen managed to recover from a dodgy pit stop to get one over his old title rival. Hamilton remained in contention for the entire race and two mid-race safety cars helped him keep close to his Dutch rival. An early second pit stop helped him get past Verstappen, with the Red Bull driver having to endure a poor 11-second stop of his own. Hamilton then went into the lead after passing Sebastian Vettel who had an incredible race in his Aston Martin.
