The Hamilton supremacy
“There’s life left in the Formula One Championship yet,” says Daniel Johnson in The Daily Telegraph. After a winless four months that “must have seemed like an eternity”, Lewis Hamilton was supreme once again at the US Grand Prix. He came across as a beacon of serenity – unrecognisable from the “unsettled” driver who walked out of a press conference in Japan two weeks ago. It was the 50th victory of Hamilton’s career, and it could prove to be one of the most significant: it put him 26 points behind Nico Rosberg, with three races to go. Overtaking his Mercedes teammate and arch-rival would be a tall order indeed. But if Rosberg slips up, Hamilton could still pull off a “great escape”.
