Lewis Hamilton leads FP1 at US Grand Prix

IF you were looking for signs of life in Lewis Hamilton’s defense of his world championship, then today’s Free Practice 1 session at the US Grand Prix in Austin could be it.

The current world champ is behind 33 points to his teammate Nico Rosberg and he needs to win the remaining four races as well as see some sort of issues befall his teammate denying him second-place finishes in the remaining races in order to have a chance at becoming the 2016 champion.

Having said that, Lewis opened his bank account this weekend with a great lap at the Circuit of the Americas and led the first practice session:
