50 not out for world champion Hamilton

AND THE WINNER IS: Lewis Hamilton salutes the crowd after his win

MERCEDES ACE Lewis Hamilton got his championship challenge back on track in the United States - and he did it in record-breaking style…

With victory in Austin, Lewis Hamilton became the third driver in F1 history to reach 50 career wins, following in the wheel tracks of Alain Prost (51) and Michael Schumacher (91).

Prost and Schumacher weren’t the only legends that Hamilton emulated in Austin – he also matched his hero Ayrton Senna’s record of wins from pole position (29) and wins in the United States (5).

Hamilton, who has seven wins this season, has now won four of the five races held at the Circuit of The Americas to date (and five of the last six in the USA). Sebastian Vettel remains the only other driver to have won in Austin.
