Mercedes Formula 1 team boss Wolff fears Mexican GP start mayhem

Lewis Hamilton seals fifth Formula 1 world championship at 2018 Mexico GP Hamilton takes fifth title as Verstappen wins in Mexico

Britain's Lewis Hamilton celebrated his fifth Formula One world championship with two races to spare on Sunday in a Mexican Grand Prix won by Red Bull's Max Verstappen for the second year in a row.

The Mercedes driver joined the late Argentine great, Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher, as the only men to win at least five titles after finishing fourth in Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix.

Hamilton came into the race with a lead so big that Vettel had to win and Hamilton had to finish lower than seventh just to push the championship to the next race in Brazil.

That is the claim of team boss Maurizio Arrivabene, after Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton wrapped up his fifth crown in Mexico. As traffic snarl ups and parking problems at Le Castellet created havoc for fans, Hamilton enjoyed a hassle free drive from pole to leave the track 14 points to the good over his German rival after upgrades to his Mercedes gave him the edge and victory.

In a year Hamilton admits he often hasn't had the strongest vehicle, he ranks his fifth career championship among his best and hardest. Number five, I think it is something incredible, so I mainly congratulated him and asked him to keep pushing next year. Hamilton finished fourth, sparking a championship celebration in the high altitude of Mexico City for the second consecutive year.

"Fangio is the godfather and always will be, but I feel very honoured to have my name alongside his, that's for sure".

"Honestly, I am just so grateful". I've still got to get back to the factory and rally the troops to figure out how we can come back and win these next races.

Accelerate strikes for Sadler in Breeders' Cup Classic
Discreet Lover is his first graded stakes victor and won the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup in his last start at odds of 45-1. He never really was challenged in any of those races.

Although he is proud to have continued adding to Britain's tally of world championships, Hamilton insists he is not expecting another visit to Buckingham Palace in the near future.

"We were struggling - both Valtteri and I".

"There's a lot of people that work very hard and Hamilton will be the same even though we hear a lot about his lifestyle outside of the auto".

At 33, Hamilton still has plenty of time to eclipse Schumacher's record - providing he can remain in a competitive vehicle - and Trulli expects the Mercedes man to set a new benchmark.

"We reflect on not one moment, but the whole of the year".

Lewis Hamilton says his focus can not slip after winning a fifth Formula 1 title because he has "no idea" why he has struggled in the last two grands prix.

"And honestly, you never know what the formula is and there is no secret formula but somehow I managed to find that balance and that flow and I've had some of my best races of my career and I think that's ultimately why I'm sitting here".
