More than 117,000 thousand racing fans from across the world watch Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain will the first Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin.

Hamilton claimed his fourth Grand Prix of the season and his second United States Grand Prix victory in five years having won the 2007 Formula 1 race last hosted in Indianapolis.


Hamilton passed polewinner Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull on lap 42 of 56 with a clean move at the end of the DRS zone into Turn 12 to claim his fourth win of 2012 and the 21st of his Formula 1 career.

“That was my best win, guys!” yelled a delighted Hamilton to his pit crew, whom he leaves at the end of this season. “That was wicked!”

Vettel, current points leader in the drivers’ standings, was second with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso third.
