Congratulations Lewis Hamilton and McLaren Mercedes! He lost the title by a point last season but he won it with a point this season. He also won it in the last lap. He is also the youngest Formula 1 driver to capture the crown at 23 years, 9 months and 26 days old. Fernando Alonso was the youngest champion at 24 years old, 1 month and 27 days old.

Hamilton is also the first ever black driver to win the Formula One crown, the 9th British champion, the fist since Damon Hill in 1996 and the first McLaren champion since Mika Hakkinen in 1999. Massa must be having a tough day despite winning the race. German Tiko Glock lost 18 seconds in his Toyota to give Hamilton the 5th place.

Although I am a Ferrari fan, Hamilton does have the skills and the luck this season to win the title so he does deserve the title. Massa has been having many unlucky races for the last few races of the season which made his title chase so much more tougher. I guess that's how it is in life sometimes. A point can make such a huge difference. I hope he will come back stronger next season!
