The 2015 season has seen a dominant display from the already two-time Formula 1 world champion, Lewis Hamilton, and the US Grand Prix saw the Brit earn his third title.

Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Ayrton Senna, Hamilton always appeared to be favourite for the 2015 title and lay down his marker early on in the season with victory in the opening race in Australia.

Lewis' race victory in the US marked his tenth win of the season while his teammate Nico Rosberg had only clocked up a mere three race victories up until that point.

Before the US Grand Prix, Rosberg could only amass the same amount of race victories as German compatriot Sebastian Vettel. With Vettel's Ferrari car proving to be around one-second slower than the Mercedes car at the majority of races throughout the season, it is hard to believe that Rosberg had a genuine struggle on his hands for second place in the Drivers' Championship.

The reality is that at no point in the calendar season has Rosberg seemed to pose a real threat to Hamilton's desire to retain his world championship title.

Rosberg off the pace

Rosberg's first race victory did not come until five races into the season, at the Spanish GP. By this point, Hamilton had already stood on the top step of the podium in Australia, China and Bahrain.

Rosberg also consistently struggled to impose his authority throughout qualifying this season. The US Grand Prix saw just his fourth triumph to pole position of the campaign. Meanwhile, his teammate had already conquered pole position 11 times in the season.

Hamilton's bid to regain his world title faced no real threat. He outclassed and out-drove his teammate, and the rest of the grid, on a consistent basis.

There can be no doubt that he was the only driver this season that deserved to win the World Championship.
