Hamilton takes fourth title despite collision
MEXICO CITY – Lewis Hamilton became Britain’s first four-times Formula One world champion at the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday despite a first corner collision with title rival Sebastian Vettel that dropped both to the back of the field.
In a race won by Red Bull’s Dutch 20-year-old Max Verstappen, the 32-year-old Mercedes driver fought back from last place to finish ninth while Ferrari’s Vettel climbed from 19th to fourth.
Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas finished second with Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen third. (Reuters)
