Max Verstappen resisted a late charge from Lewis Hamilton to win the United States Grand Prix.
Hamilton got the jump on Verstappen at the start to lead the early stages of the race. Verstappen and Red Bull reacted by pitting earlier, reclaiming track position, as Hamilton and Mercedes played the long game.
After both drivers had made their two pit-stops, Hamilton was tasked with eradicating Verstappen's eight-second advantage. While the seven-time World Champion gradually cut the gap, he was unable to get close enough to attempt a move.
Verstappen thus took the chequered flag and moved 12 points clear in the standings, with Hamilton recording the fastest lap.
Sergio Perez fell away from the title contenders to take a lonely third. Charles Leclerc was fourth, while Daniel Ricciardo came out on top in a titanic battle with Carlos Sainz to complete the top five positions.
