Lewis Hamilton overcame Ferrari’s front row start to win the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday, moving the Mercedes driver closer to a sixth career Formula One championsh­ip. Only Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas’ third-place finish denied Hamilton the championsh­ip by the slimmest of margins in a race held in Mexico City. Hamilton needed only to beat Bottas by 14 points but picked up 10 instead. That sends the championsh­ip to next week’s U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
