Lewis Hamilton has joined Michael Schumacher as one of only two drivers in history to have won as many as six Formula One World Championship Titles.

With the sixth World Championship Title under his belt, Hamilton is now definitively one of the best Formula One drivers of all time
In a campaign that has seen the Briton fight every inch of the way for race wins, steadfastly refusing to think only of points for the championship, it was fitting that Hamilton sealed a fifth crown in six years with another bullish drive in Austin, even if he eventually had to settle for second in the U.S.A Grand Prix behind Mercedes team mate and title rival Valtteri Bottas after just failing to make a one-stop strategy work.

This season will be remembered as one where Hamilton underlined his credentials as the greatest all-round driver on the grid, and undoubtedly one of the best of all time.

Armed with a Mercedes W10 car he immediately felt at one with, the 34-year old set himself on course for back-to-back title defences with a red-hot opening half of the season in which he won seven of the first 10 races, seemingly having raised his game once more to another level.

"I'm really, really grateful to everyone back at the factory, everyone who has supported me this year within the team, who have worked so hard to enable us to do what we do," said Hamilton at the end of the race at Austin.
