    Lewis Hamilton won the United States Grand Prix after a tight battle with Sebastian Vettel as Fernando Alonso kept the title fight alive.
    Hamilton's McLaren tracked Vettel's Red Bull throughout the race and finally passed him with 14 laps to go. Alonso's third place means he is 13 points behind the German.
    The title will now be settled in the final race of the season in Brazil next weekend, with 25 points available for victory.
    The result means Red Bull have won the constructors' championship.
    Ferrari's Felipe Massa held off McLaren's Jenson Button to take fourth.
    The Brazilian fought up from 11th after Ferrari gave him a deliberate five-place penalty to promote team-mate Alonso a place so he could start seventh on the cleaner side of the grid, where there is more grip.
    Alonso made good use of the strategy, making a superb start to climb into fourth place by the time the field had rounded the first corner.
    Ahead of him, Red Bull's Mark Webber had passed Hamilton to take second as Vettel converted pole into a lead.
    The German, though, was unable to pull his usual gap on his pursuers and Hamilton chased him throughout the first stint.
    Vettel eked out a three-second lead by the time of their only pit stops, but after them Hamilton closed in again.
    He spent several laps within a second of Vettel but not quite close enough to pass before taking advantage of the leader being held up by an HRT to pass him down the straight into Turn 12.
    Vettel stayed within two seconds of the McLaren to the end of the race, but was never close enough to attempt a pass.
    Alonso was promoted to third place when Webber retired with an alternator failure on lap 17.
    The Spaniard looked like he might face a challenge from Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen, but a slow pit stop meant the Finn rejoined just behind the Ferrari, which then pulled away.
    Raikkonen, much slower on the 'hard' tyres the leaders had to use in the second stint, dropped back and slipped behind Massa and McLaren's Jenson Button in the to finish sixth ahead of team-mate Romain Grosjean.
    Button drove a strong race to climb up from 12th on the grid, using a reverse strategy from the leaders.
    He started on the 'hard' tyre and ran a long first stint, by the end of which he was up to third place.
    His stop on lap 36 dropped him back behind Grosjean, but he managed to pass both Lotus cars before the end as Massa never let him get closer than five seconds.
    Force India's Nico Hulkenberg finished eighth, holding off Pastor Maldonado, who won a private battle with Williams team-mate Bruno Senna to take ninth ahead of the Brazilian.
