F1 » Hamilton's Texas stampede pushes Vettel aside

Sebastian Vettel was doubtless hoping for great things in F1's first visit to the Circuit of the Americas, but both the race win and the drivers championship were not to be his in Texas.

Well done Lewis great job. Goes to show that when you are allowed to race rather than tiptoe around on weak tyres then the man to watch is Hammy. I for one want to see all out racing not a race were tyre management is the king.

Vettel was BEAT by Lewis. Straight up. Qualifying day some on here said both cars were equal and Vettel won pole. Race day was no different. Equal cars and the best driver won. Vettel was locking up in a number of spots trying to keep the position. He was NO match yesterday for Lewis. The best driver won.

Good race and a worthy track. Gets my award for Best Overall Driving this year. Almost no stupid manouevres and only 1 car retiring through driver error. A well deserved win by Hamilton who seemed a changed character in the pre-race interview.
Funny to see Brundle barging in to Coulthards chat with Vettel (which the BBC edited out) and zooming in so close to his face just to hide the sky microphone.
And to those shouting cheat at Ferrari, please state the regulation that was transgressed because if you comply with all the regs, how can that be cheating?

Totally agree about the BBC, they nearly always give away the Moto3/Moto2 race results during their Motogp coverage without any warning, which is extremely annoying, Eurosport are much better, always careful to not reveal anything or at least warn the audience.

Bullsh*t... doesn't take the brains of an arch bishop to see Vettel did his best not to be passed. He was a little unlucky with backmarkers but that is racing, he loves his stats etc and would not have wanted to be 2nd. You can see it on his face and hear it from his radio message.

Good to see something close to proper racing between them though, Ferrari may be cheats but it obviously does pay! Some good driving from Button as well and in fact good racing throughout the field. Tilke finally makes a good track, he has had plenty of practice and made some dull ones!
