Hamilton races to win after Verstappen and Ocon collision

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton saw victory fall into his lap at the Brazilian Grand Prix as his Mercedes team clinched the constructors’ title for the fifth year in a row. The win was Hamilton’s 10th of the season and 72nd of his career. The Briton had already won the drivers’ title for a fifth time. Hamilton started on pole position but was no match for Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who led until a collision with the Force India of already-lapped Esteban Ocon sent him into a spin, putting the champion back in front. Verstappen finished second, still seething, while Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen took third. Only Ferrari have previously managed to win five championships in a row, taking six in succession during the Michael Schumacher era from 1999 to 2004.
