Lewis Hamilton has etched his name in Formula One history by securing his fifth world title.
The Mercedes driver finished fourth in today's Mexican Grand Prix, enough to claim his fourth title in five years. There are still two races left in the season.
Hamilton's season championship was all but assured, and after brief bid for the lead off the start and a scary run off the track late, he finished off the title with a drive further into the F1 record books. The British driver is now tied with the late Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina for second most in F1 history. Only Germany's Michael Schumacher has more with seven.
Red Bull's Max Verstappen won the race, his fifth of his career, with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel finishing second and teammate Kimi Raikkonen third.
Kiwi driver Brendon Hartley finished 14th after starting in 14th.
