On race weekend Lewis Hamilton steered a fine line between selfless (if not selfieless) interaction with fans who were up front in their admiration for the champion and meticulous preparation with his team. Hamilton won the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin on Sunday October 25 and the F1 season championship. The 30-year-old is the first Formula One driver to win 10 or more races in consecutive seasons, and his third season championship earns Hamilton a spot among the great drivers in the sport's history.
