Newly crowned world champion Lewis Hamilton will only get better, warns his Mercedes boss and three- time world champion Niki Lauda. Victory at the US Grand Prix was enough to assure Hamilton of his third world title, joining an elite club of triple- winners and the first British driver to defend his crown. Though there are still three races remaining in the 2015 season, Hamilton's now holds an insurmountable points advantage over Sebastian Vettel. "Now he's only as good as I am," joked Lauda after ther ace. "He will get better and win more, I tell you." Hamilton was over whelmed by the occasion, showing his emotion in the cool-down room before heading onto the ceremony. " It's an over whelming moment," he said after wards. " Thinking about how much my family sacrificed - my Mum, my Dad, my whole family. " The race today was really amazing and anything could have happened. The last 10 - 15 laps were extraordinary - it was just a crazy, crazy race. I was in the lead, then I was fourth and the conditions were really tricky. Nico was driving really well, too. All the way through, I was thinking; "The Championship is there somewhere... how can I get it?" It was so close I could smell it and there was never a moment I didn't believe I could do it. " It's just incredible to equal Ayrton, too. My target was always three titles as he was the one who inspired me. There is nooneIwanttoequalnow-Ijustwant to carry on as far and long as I can. For any driver, you want to win in anything you compete in - but this is the ultimate goal. Championships mean greatness - yours and your teams!" While Mercedes wrapped up the constructors' title in Russia, the team could still finish 1-2 in the drivers championship with Nico Rosberg trailing Vettel by four points. 32 GPWEEK.com // 32 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> UNITED STATES PARTNERS: The best is yet to come, warns Lauda
