F1 LIVE – United States Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton gets off to a FLYING start in Texas as he overtakes pole-sitter and title rival Max Verstappen on first corner to take lead
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are set to renew their fight for the Formula One world championship title in Austin, Texas on Sunday evening.
The fierce rivals locked out the front row of the grid, with the Dutchman on pole and, with just six points between them in the rankings and six rounds left, there could be plenty of thrills and spills at the Circuit of the Americas.
Verstappen finished up two-tenths of a second clear of the Briton, a past master at the Circuit of Americas on which he has triumphed five times since the event moved to Texas in 2012 – and will lead the Brit into one of the widest corners in the world.
