The Briton who could very well seal his 4th Drivers’ title if he wins the race and if his closest rival Sebastian Vettel comes lower than 5th on race day.

Lewis has won five of the last six races and during practice was 0.6 seconds faster than his  Mercedes team mate Valteri Bottas.

He beat Vettel by 0.5secs in the first session and then Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by 0.4secs in the second, in which Vettel had a spin and then suffered car problems that restricted him to just one competitive lap.

He also acknowledged that when he was in the car, he was screaming like a kid as the car felt good to him.

“That is a really good sign and it really fills my heart. When you get in the car, I still have that love and fire. That is burning stronger than ever and I think that is why I am driving as well as I am.

“I have been really happy in the car. I have been really able to extract a lot. This is a strong circuit for me.

“It is a track that bodes well for an aggressive driving style. I can be aggressive here and even more so this year because the front tyre doesn’t give up.

“I can always be more aggressive, but in the past the tyres haven’t necessarily taken it and this year it is looking quite good” he said.

Lewis did say that he was not focusing on what Vettel did, his focus in on winning the race.

Formula1 this season has been dominated by Hamilton and Vettel

The race is in Austin,Texas and is scheduled to begin at 2pm local time
