Lewis Hamilton has been crowned Formula One world champion for the sixth time after finishing second at the United States Grand Prix, where Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas won the race.

The 34-year-old Briton finished second at the Circuit of the Americas to become only the second driver after retired Ferrari great and seven-times champion Michael Schumacher to win six titles.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen took third place in the race while Ferrari's Charles Leclerc finished fourth and took an extra point for fastest lap.
