Hamilton praises Mercedes fans after another Formula One World Championship double

Lewis Hamilton has heaped the praise on his Mercedes supporters after the Brit was part of the team which celebrated a record-breaking sixth consecutive Formula One World Championship double at the United States Grand Prix.

The 34-year-old secured the drivers' title after finishing 2nd in the United States, having helped the team seal the constructors' title a week earlier in Mexico.

 With two races remaining, Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas stand as the two drivers at the top and are well clear of the rest of the grid.

 "It's very difficult to find the right words to express my gratitude to all of you for continuing to push every year - it's thanks to you that I've been living my dream, that I've been able to succeed and reach this incredible achievement in my life, " Hamilton told the Mercedes website

 "I'm incredibly proud to be part of this group and I can't thank you enough for everything that you've done. I never in a million years thought I'd get to six."
