Formula 1 Brazilian GP: Hamilton wins from 10th on grid

Lewis Hamilton has taken one of the greatest victories of his F1 career at the Brazilian Grand Prix, to keep his title hopes alive. 

Starting 10th on the grid, the 7-time world champion stormed to third inside 10 laps with just the two Red Bull drivers ahead of him.

Shortly after, he overtook Sergio Perez to set up a 52-lap showdown with his title rival Max Verstappen.

Eventually, Hamilton hunted down the Dutchman, 11 laps from the end, before coasting to a vital victory.

Verstappen, whose overall lead is now cut to 14 points, finished second, with Valtteri Bottas completing the podium in third place.

The 101st victory of Hamilton's career sent a powerful message of intent, as the title race looks like to go down to the wire, with only three races remaining.
