Hamilton Wins 5th Formula 1 Title

Despite not finishing on the podium in the Mexican Grand Prix, Hamilton secured his fifth Formula 1 championship with two races remaining in the series. Hamilton needed to at least finish 7th to clinch the title, or not at all if Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari failed to win. Finishing in 4th places and Vettel coming just short of 1st was more than good enough for Hamilton to take title.

With his fifth win, it puts him on par with Juan Manuel Fangio for all-time championship success.
