Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton claimed his fifth Formula 1 title at the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday night, with two races to spare.
Despite finishing fourth in Sunday’s race, it was good enough to see the British driver claim the world championship to draw level with Juan Manuel Fangio in the Formula 1 record books, with Max Verstappen victorious.
The 33-year-old Briton’s only remaining championship rival, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, needed a victory to keep his hopes alive, but could only finish second.
Hamilton’s success also sees him just two titles shy of seven-time champion Michael Schumacher.
He added his 2018 crown to his championship wins in 2008, 2014, 2015 and 2017.
