Lewis Hamilton seals sixth F1 title but Bottas denies him US GP win

Lewis Hamilton clinched his sixth Formula 1 title despite being passed for victory late on by Valtteri Bottas in the United States Grand Prix.
Hamilton jumped both Ferrari drivers on the opening lap to run third and was then only one among the leaders to execute a one-stop strategy, which elevated him above Bottas and Max Verstappen.
That gave Verstappen a balance offset throughout the grand prix, and meant by the time he pitted first on lap 13 of 56 – committing to a two-stop strategy – Bottas was several seconds clear and Hamilton was on the Red Bull’s tail.
