Lewis Hamilton is now the most successful British Formula 1 driver in history after securing his fourth world title at the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday.
The 32-year-old only finished ninth following a clash with rival Sebastian Vettel, but that was still enough to add another world title to his collection.
Hamilton joins Vettel and Alain Prost on four world titles. Only Michael Schumacher (seven) and Juan Manuel Fangio (five) have more.
"Wow. I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who came out to see us," Hamilton was quoted as saying by BBC Sport after the race. "The Mexican fans I think are the best around the world. I did everything I could. I had a good start and I don't really know what happened at turn three but I gave him plenty of room, but I tried my hardest to come back.
"A big thank you to my family and my team. Mercedes have been incredible over the last five years and I am so proud to be a part of it.
"I never gave up. It was not the [type of] race I wanted. I kept going right to the end. I just want to lift it up to my family, and god and my team."
Hamilton ran with the fans after the race
Following the race, Hamilton, with the British flag draped around his shoulders, decided to celebrate by running with the fans.
He was running on the ledge at first but then needed to drop down with the fans because of a metal fence.
This led to him being mobbed by spectators, many of whom were attempting to get a selfie with the Brit.
F1 fans noticed something hilarious happen
During his run, F1 fans spotted a hilarious moment involving two of the spectators, who collided into each other and hit the deck - hard.

That’s gotta hurt!
Fortunately, neither fan appeared to be injured by the collision.
In fact, seconds later they were both up and chasing their hero.
They weren’t about to give up on their selfie that easily.
