D he fight for the lead in the first corner of the GP USA went down a bit in the cheers for Lewis Hamilton's title win.

Hamilton has nothing to say
Hamilton himself didn't want to hear about it in Mexico. 'We haven't talked about it yet. I don't think that's necessary either,' said the new and old champion defiantly. He doesn't think much of discussing scenes from past races again. For him, the matter was closed.

With three races to go, Sebastian Vettel is 4 points ahead of Rosberg. But Hamilton declined: 'The team didn't ask me if I would support him. I'm here to win races. The team's main concern was to secure the championship. So there is no great incentive to help him . But let's see what Toto has to say. '
