United States Grand Prix LIVE: Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen go head-to-head in title battle


F1 LIVE – United States Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton regains lead over title rivals Max Verstappen following pit-stop, after Brit had overtaken him on first corner before being passed in pits


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.
