To the track in Texas for Formula One and the United States Grand Prix one of four races remaining in the season. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg came in with a 33 point lead over his teammate and two-time defending world champion Lewis Hamilton, but the Briton responded to the pressure by setting the fastest lap time to capture the pole position giving him a great chance to win his fourth title at the Circuit of the Americas.
 
Here are the drivers coming around the first corner with Hamilton in the lead and Rosberg just behind him. But now let's go back and see the actual start from Rosberg's point of view as he slides to the outside of his Merceds rival before heading down the hill where he's promptly passed by Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, which certainly pleases at least one guy in the crowd.
 
And suddenly it's over with Rosberg accepting the second place trophy.
 
But you probably want to see more of the race so let's go back again as Ricciardo makes a pit stop allowing Rosberg to take second while the other Red Bull car driven by Max Verstappen has a gear box failure and couldn't finish.
 
Things not so good for Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen either as a bungled pit stop meant he had to go back.
 
No such problems for Hamilton who would lead from start to finish to win his fourth US Grand Prix in five years while Rosberg comes in second. The victory cuts his deficit to 26 points behind the German and keeping him alive in the title race, but Rosberg still controls his own destiny. Ricciardo was third while Sebastian Vettel came fourth.
