Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton couldn't be prouder of their accomplishments over the past week, firstly wrapping up the constructors championship in Austin and now, even though he was lapped by race leader max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton has become the 2017 World Drivers Champion with two races still to run.

Here are a few of their comments after the race….

“Lewis Hamilton is the 2017 Formula One World Drivers' Champion! After a hard-fought, nail-biting battle for the top spot in the Drivers' standings, Lewis has secured the title in Mexico with two races left to go,” they said in a statement. “It's been an unbelievable seven days for the Silver Arrows, taking the Constructors' crown in Austin and wrapping up the week in Mexico City by completing the clean sweep.”

“Lewis now becomes only the fifth driver in F1 history to win four World Drivers' Championships, and has now surpassed the legendary Sir Jackie Stewart to become Britain's most successful driver in the sport's history. How cool is that? Two incredible landmarks to reach!”
