Lewis Hamilton and the USA - the perfect fit. For the third year in a row and for the fourth time in total, Lewis won last weekend's race at the Circuit of the Americas.

In fact, it was his fifth victory in the United States, as back in 2007 he won the last Formula 1 race to be staged on the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

But even before Lewis and Nico Rosberg secured the one-two finish in Sunday's race, the team already had cause to celebrate on Saturday as Lewis claimed a third successive pole at Austin for the team - although the man starting from P1 in the previous two seasons had been his team-mate Nico.

But that's not all: Lewis's qualifying lap of 1:34.999 minutes was the fastest pole-setting time in the history of the Circuit of the Americas.
