The F1 world champion, who controlled the sprint race on Saturday, charged from sixth on the grid to take his 15th win of the season but had to do it managing a brake issue throughout the US GP.

It looked like Hamilton came close to upsetting strong favourite Verstappen as he closed in late on, but had to settle for second before being disqualified after the race as his Mercedes F1 car was found to have sustained excessive plank wear.
