Max Verstappen fought back to pass Lewis Hamilton to win a dramatic United States Grand Prix, and equal the record for victories in a season.
Verstappen was controlling the race until a delay at his final pit stop handed the lead to Hamilton and also dropped the Red Bull driver behind Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
The pit problem gave Hamilton a chance to end his and Mercedes’ win drought in a difficult season for the team.
Verstappen’s 13th win this year equals the record for wins in a season, held by Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc finished third from 12th on the grid, helped by the two safety car periods that punctuated the middle of the race, ahead of Red Bull’s Sergio Perez and Mercedes’ George Russell.
