British driver Lewis Hamilton overcame wet conditions to win the Japanese Grand Prix in a McLaren-Mercedes, the 15th leg of the 17-race world championship in Japan on Sunday.

Hamilton, who started from pole position, dropped to fourth after his first pit stop, but regained the lead after 41 laps to finish ahead of Finland's Heikki Kovalainen in a Renault and Kimi Raikkonen in a Ferrari.

It was Hamilton's fourth win of the season, following his victories in Canada, the United States and Hungary.
