Famous five for Hamilton as he wins the world title again

Lewis Hamilton was left still trying to take on board the magnitude of his achievement of becoming a five-time world champion after he secured the title at the Mexican Grand Prix.

It draws him level with the legendary Juan-Manuel Fangio who won five titles in the 1950s, behind only Michael Schumacher who claimed seven championships in the 1990s and 2000s.

The championship leader got a helping hand at Sochi Autodrom from his Mercedes colleague as Bottas was ordered to move aside and allow Hamilton to win and open up a 50-point advantage over Vettel.

Although he ended the day with the drivers' title, it was not a race Hamilton will look back on fondly.

Vettel's championship hopes were finally extinguished on Sunday when he failed to win the Mexican Grand Prix and Hamilton finished fourth.

"As you can probably tell, I'm pretty happy right now", he said. I've been with Mercedes since I was 13 and to complete this, when Fangio did it, it's an incredible feeling, very surreal.

"Thanks, legends", shouted a wildly happy Ricciardo over team radio before adding later: "I knew it was in there somewhere - I just knew the pace was in the auto".

"Into turn one everyone got boxed in and that was nice for me", he said.

"I've been racing a long, long time, so it's very rare that I make rash decisions and silly decisions when it comes to those scenarios".

Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen won the race, ahead of Ferrari pair Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.

Perhaps the most pivotal point of the term came at Hockenheim on July 22, two weeks after Silverstone, when Vettel had appeared set to further increase his championship lead only to see his rival instead seize an advantage he would never cede.

"I congratulated him and I think he drove superb all year", Vettel said.

Vettel added: "We need to stand there, accept it and say congratulations".

"I felt like I couldn't push the vehicle to its limit", Verstappen said.

"I was very determined to win and we've done that - we had the right tyres and the vehicle was working very well..." We wanted two of us on the podium.

Then, he snapped at his race engineer, Pete Bonnington, telling him to leave him to it.

In last year's Mexican Grand Prix Hamilton, Vettel and Verstappen made contact through the opening corners, with only eventual victor Verstappen emerging unscathed.

Vettel, a four-time champion, opened the season with a strong charge of two straight victories before Hamilton and Mercedes dominated the second half of the season.
