People watching the Grand Prix at Silverstone and Lewis Hamilton's old karting club erupted into cheers as the 23-year-old became Formula One's youngest champion.

Fans in Brazil had been jubilant seconds earlier when they thought Felipe Massa had clinched the title, only to be left disappointed.

BBC 5 Live's David Croft was commentating on the race.
