Hamilton wins US Grand Prix to extend F1 championship lead

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) The fastest man on four wheels stood on the U.S. Grand Prix podium with the fastest man on two feet.

Together, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and retired sprinter Usain Bolt struck Bolt's familiar "To the World" pose, their fingers pointing to the sky and perhaps the way toward another Hamilton Formula One championship.

Hamilton tightened his control on the F1 season title by winning the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday ahead of title rival Sebastian Vettel, who finished second in a race he said he had to win.
