October 22, 2018
(CNN)Lewis Hamilton will have to wait a little longer to clinch his fifth F1 world title after Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen claimed his first victory in 113 starts to take a gripping US Grand Prix in Texas Sunday.
Hamilton finished third in his Mercedes behind Raikkonen and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen but still increased his title lead to 70 points over Sebastian Vettel, who was back in fourth after an early spin at the Circuit of Americas.
Raikkonen overtook polesitter Hamilton off the start and took advantage of perfect race tactics from his Ferrari team to take the checkered flag for the first time since Australia in 2013.
