2014 American Grand Prix wallpapers – Six years to the day since he won the world championship in Brazil, Lewis Hamilton took another giant step towards a second in Austin on Sunday with a narrow but dominant 10th victory of the season over Mercedes team-mate and title contender Nico Rosberg. It was his 32nd career win, which made him the most successful British driver of all time after he had equalled Nigel Mansell’s record last time out in Russia.
It was not all plain sailing, though, as Hamilton went to the line still concerned about both his brakes and his left front tyre, having suffered wheel locking and a resultant flat-spot in qualifying. And as expected, Rosberg blasted into the lead from the cleaner side of the grid at the start. Hamilton was able to fend off the Williams of Valtteri Bottas which started third, also on the cleaner side, but almost immediately the race was neutralised by the safety car after Sergio Perez’s Force India crashed into Adrian Sutil’s Sauber.
The Mexican was able to limp back to the pits, but the German’s car was stranded on the track. During the four-lap intervention debris was also cleared up, but not before Sebastian Vettel, who had started from the pits, ran over some and suffered a puncture. Jenson Button also ran over it and suspected for the rest of the race that he’d damaged his McLaren’s floor.
