Lewis Hamilton wins in Brazil; Mercedes takes F1 constructors’ title

1 Comment

SAO PAULO — Lewis Hamilton won the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, helping his Mercedes team to take the constructors’ title.

Hamilton, who had already sealed his fifth Formula One title, started from pole position and finished less than two seconds ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen completed the podium at Interlagos.

Hamilton’s 10th victory in the season was helped by Force India’s Esteban Ocon, who collided with Verstappen on the 44th lap when the Dutchman led.

Verstappen managed to stay in the race and get closer to Hamilton in the final laps, but it wasn’t enough for him to get his second consecutive victory.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel finished sixth.
