The race marked the forty-seventh running of the United States Grand Prix, the thirty-ninth time that the race was run as a World Championship event since the inaugural season in 1950, and the sixth time that a World Championship round was held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas was third, a further 13 points behind. In the World Constructors' Championship, Mercedes held a lead of 155 points over Ferrari, with Red Bull Racing a further 92 points behind in third place.
