This F1 season Lewis Hamilton was the keystone in bringing victory to the Mercedes team - and in the process was crowned world champion for the second time in his career.
Mercedes' record 16 wins in 19 races wouldn't have been possible without Hamilton, who secured 11 of them in a superb 2014 season.
Overall, he has secured 33 wins so far in his career - just one of many British records he holds.
Now, Hamilton can count himself among a rare breed of British F1 drivers who have also won two world championships each.
Sir Jackie Stewart who was the last British driver to become a double world champion 43 years ago said: "It's a great victory for him and a great victory for Britain."
Hamilton, who doesn't drink champagne and only had one drink to celebrate, remains incredibly humble about his achievement.
Now, there are calls for Hamilton's historic win to be recognised by awarding him BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
