Since then, the team have won five consecutive drivers' and constructors' championship doubles. Victory in Brazil ensured they have equalled Ferrari's record, achieved with Michael Schumacher between 2000 and 2004.

"You've got to say that Lewis this year has just made the difference for us", technical director James Allison told Sky Sports television. Wolff recognised how crucial he had been.

"I didn't really feel the celebration there because I knew that we still had another championship to win and I really needed to remain focused for the team and I really came here, to build up to here, just really focused on making sure that I could deliver for them". He's an exceptional driver and an unbelievable personality; human is the right word.

"The gasses we emit with our cars are not particularly helpful, so on one side that's a concern but on the other side, I'm a petrol head".

Verstappen's boss Christian Horner caused a stir with his immediate reaction, claiming that Ocon was "lucky" that Verstappen did not get more physical with him, but the comments did not warrant being looked into.

The exercises featured soldiers from 31 countries and included Finland and Sweden, which aren't part of the alliance. Finnish President Sauli Niinisto has called for a thorough investigation into the incident, Associated Press reports.

Hamilton, who took his fifth title in Mexico with fourth place, had admitted that was not how he had wanted to seal the championship, but took huge satisfaction in finishing the double with a win at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace.

"It's been more... I do think to this point this is the highest point of my career in terms of my own performance [and] how I perform with the team".

"I called him and he said: "Thank you very much and I miss you guys", Wolff further added. "I saw it and I'll remember that moment for the rest of my life".

"I might not be able to hold these emotions in".

"Honestly, these guys have worked so hard in the last six years", said Hamilton. It's been such an incredible journey and by no means has it been easy for anybody.
