London, Nov.3 (ANI): Lewis Hamilton wept with joy after becoming the youngest-ever Formula One world champion and roared: I thank God for this. Hamilton pipped Brazilian Felipe Massa to the title in unbelievable fashion when he overtook German Timo Glock with just half a mile left to clinch the fifth place he needed in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Im very emotional, Ive cried. I dont think it has hit home yet that I am the world champion. I can only thank God I managed to get past Glock and it was just amazing. I have just had the most intense race of my life, my heart is still racing. I am going to celebrate with my family. We will party together as a team, thats for sure, The Sun quoted Hamilton, 23, as saying. I had a problem with my tyres, they were beginning to grain. There was nothing I could do. I was just trying to keep the car on the track. My heart was in my mouth when I was trying to get back in front of Sebastian Vettel but fortunately there was an opportunity to get past Glock, he added. (ANI)
