After an exciting and a thrilling race this year at Austin, United States, Lewis Hamilton’s victory wrapped up this year’s Drivers’ Championship. As a result, Hamilton became the first British driver to defend the world championship and also equal his childhood idol, Ayrton Senna’s record of three world titles.
We, now, move to the south of United States- Mexico. Mexican Grand Prix returns to the Formula One calendar after a long gap of 23 years. Here are the interesting talking points to look forward to before the GP.
5. Rosberg’s ‘cap gate’
Hamilton took his tenth win of the season in the United States, and thus, with three races to go, remains on course to equal Sebastian Vettel’s single-season record of 13 victories, set in 2013. Such dominance forced Rosberg to throw his cap at Hamilton after the US Grand Prix race, which was not only disrespectful to the Brit but also showed his lack of maturity in handling defeats. Rosberg, currently sits third in the Drivers’ Championship, should try to come clean of the incident and finish this year on a high and cut Hamilton’s lead as much as possible, even though it is of no value now.
