Mercedes AMG F1 driver Lewis Hamilton won the Brazilian Grand Prix in treacherous condition at Interlagos. He finished the race 11.4 seconds ahead of his teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg.
The Briton also closed the points gap with Nico to 12 points with 25 available in the final race. The Silver Arrow drivers were joined by Red Bull's Max Verstappen on the podium.
The young Dutch driver showed what he can do in tricky conditions. In 16 laps, he managed to overtake 13 drivers to claim the 3rd place at Interlagos.
After the race, Hamilton said, "It was a very easy race. Probably one of the easier ones. I didn't have any spins or moments, it was pretty straightforward. Silverstone 2008 was way harder than this."
Lewis, who claimed the first place admitted that winning at Interlagos had always been a dream for him.
"I have been dreaming of winning since I was very, very young," he added. "These experiences feel surreal and won't kick in until later.
"After so many years of not winning this GP... It is a hard GP to win and today was one of the most difficult in terms of being wet and aquaplaning - but probably the most smooth-sailing race I've had here in 10 years."
Hamilton also commented about the title decider at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi. "I am hunting and all I can do is do what I am doing right now. The team has given me a good car and finally the reliability is really good. Abu Dhabi is a good track for me. I can live with the second place today, even though I was hoping for the win."
