Hamilton's fifth F1 title on hold

Lewis Hamilton was kept waiting for his fifth Formula One world championship after the Mercedes driver finished third in a U.S. Grand Prix won by Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

The victory was the Finn's first since March 2013. Red Bull's Dutch youngster Max Verstappen finished second after starting 18th.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton's only title rival, finished fourth -- a result that means the championship remains open until Mexico next weekend. Hamilton now has a 70-point lead with 75 remaining to be won.
