Lewis Hamilton’s love affair with the United States Grand Prix continued during practice at the Circuit of The Americas on Saturday in Austin as he completed a clean sweep of the practice sessions in FP3.
The F1 world championship leader finished some eight-tenths of a second clear of championship rival and teammate Nico Rosberg at the top of the timesheets, and he will be hoping to carry this form over into qualifying later today.

Hamilton’s record in the United States is a very impressive one, having claimed victory at both Indianapolis in 2007 and the inaugural COTA event in 2012. Should he clinch a third win on American soil this Sunday, his championship lead will be at least 24 points – a very healthy margin to boast with just two races remaining.
Just behind the Silver Arrows, a number of drivers are jostling for position in the race to complete the podium. Red Bull, Williams and Ferrari all seem to be in good form in Austin, creating a close fight in the points-paying positions.
As F1 continues to press on in the United States, qualifying today should be a very close affair indeed.
