The Mercedes driver's victory means he is now level on points with Verstappen going into the season finale in the UAE.
Where and when is the final race?
The Abu Dhabi GP takes place at Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday, December 12.
In the drivers' championship, Verstappen and Hamilton are level on 369.5 points each. In the constructors' standings, Hamilton's Mercedes team are on 587.5 points with Verstappen's Red Bull on 559.5.
There are a maximum 26 points up for grabs in Abu Dhabi — 25 for a race victory and one for the fastest lap around the remodelled Yas Marina track.
The simple equation is that whoever finishes higher will win the title.
Verstappen leads Hamilton 9-8 on wins for the season, however — meaning that the 24-year-old Dutchman will be champion if neither he nor Hamilton scores another point.
