Title-chasing Hamilton forced to wait as Raikkonen wins US Grand Prix

Title-chasing Hamilton forced to wait as Raikkonen wins US Grand Prix”

ESPN rounds up the main talking points from an entertaining U.S. Grand Prix, where Kimi Raikkonen claimed his first Formula One win since 2013 ahead of Max Verstappen meaning Lewis Hamilton will have to wait until next week's Mexican Grand Prix to win his fifth world title.

The key was the start, the Finn using his softer tyres to leap ahead of championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

"Beautiful work", Mercedes told Hamilton, who will have Raikkonen alongside him at the start. It ended the longest stretch between wins in Formula One history.

"Some of that it is Turn 1, I would say mostly, they generally have a vehicle that's better in corners like that".

"This year people realise that you can have the fastest auto but you have to be able to perform week in, week out".

The father told detectives that when the child hadn't arrived in the afternoon, he assumed plans changed and left for the evening. The woman then knocked on the door before turning around and running away, leaving the boy behind at the doorstep.

He also now holds the record for the biggest gap between races - 112 races and one DNS - as well as taking the accolade as the oldest race victor, at 39, since Nigel Mansell triumphed for Williams at the 1994 Australian Grand Prix. "I might be getting older but it was not too bad, we'll get a few years more and I enjoyed it", he added. I knew it was edgy between us and would require some solid laps. Romain Grosjean was eliminated early in the race and that helped Renault drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz to a sixth and seventh - Kevin Magnussen, in the other Haas, scored just two points in ninth.

"We will go back to the drawing board and we will regroup and make sure that next week we are okay".

Hamilton, who was fastest in both practice sessions in Austin, needs to outscore Vettel by just eight points to win the championship, and emulate Juan Manuel Fangio with a quintet of titles.

I'll have to see what happened with the strategy.

For the always outspoken Villeneuve, Hamilton stands a good chance of catching and overhauling Schumacher in the coming years.

YouTube back up after access problems
The YouTube team however was quick to put out a tweet acknowledging the outage and promised that they were working on the problem. Previously, YouTube went down in April during World-cup but that was only for a short span of time as compared to this one.

"I'm happy for Kimi, really".

"That was very important, that was close", said the Briton as he waved at the throng of fans on an overcast and gusty afternoon at the Circuit of the Americas with rainclouds gathering.

"I think he's been pretty awesome at being able to do what he's done continuously on track for the best part of a decade but also done his own thing away from the track. for him to live the life he's living but stil keep up such a performance, all credit to him". I don't know why.

"In my opinion it's not the right thing to do as the auto behind might run into you". "The end result is that I'm very excited about".
