WINNER LEWIS HAMILTON WITH 1978 WORLD CHAMP MARIO ANDRETTI
Lewis Hamilton was able to scoot past his teammate to go on and win today's event. Hamilton is looking more like he will be this year's champion, but you never know. Only two races left for the season and he and teammate, Nico Rosberg, are still fairly close in the standings. Rosberg, who started on the pole, ended up in second place. Daniel Ricciardo, brought home another third.
The start today was missing two teams due to money problems. They will not race the rest of the season and will not be around next year. I am sure that the U.S. promoters were less than happy at this chain of events. It will be interesting to see if Formula One survives because there are other teams teetering on the brink of disaster.
It is always just about money....
By the way, Mario Andretti looks fabulous for his 74 years.
