Lewis Hamilton Celebrates F1 USA Grand Prix Win (PICTURES)

Posted: Updated:

Lewis Hamilton said he was "massively proud" following his United States Grand Prix victory in Austin, Texas.

After suffering mechanical issues in Singapore and Abu Dhabi where he had qualified on pole and led the majority of the race, Hamilton finally emerged victorious in his penultimate race for McLaren.

Ordinarily, when Vettel emerges from the first corner with the lead he goes on to take the chequered flag, but not on this occasion.

Instead, after Hamilton passed Mark Webber on lap six, the 27-year-old reeled in the lead Red Bull before making his decisive move on lap 42, going on to take the 21st win of his career.

"I nearly lost my voice because I was screaming so much on the in-lap - not cool at all," said Hamilton.
