Lewis Hamilton has become Britain's most successful formula one driver after winning the United States GP in Austin, Texas.

The victory means he's now won more Grand Prix races than any other British driver, breaking a record held by Nigel Mansell.

Hamilton has won 32 races in his career and his latest victory in Texas was his 10th of the season.

The result extends Hamilton's lead over team-mate Nico Rosberg to 24 points.

And with only two races left Hamilton is looking in good shape to win the overall drivers' championship.
