Lewis Hamilton Loses Brazilian Grand Prix, Becomes Youngest F1 Champ23-year-old Lewis Hamilton just became the youngest ever Formula One World Champion after a dramatic 5th place finish at the Brazilian Grand Prix. The rain-soaked race was largely decided by pit stops, with Hamilton being forced to pit for wets and dropping down to 6th place. With just yards to go before the finish line, the British driver was able to overtake Timo Glock’s Toyota in the final corner, giving him enough points to just beat out race winner Felipe Massa of Ferrari. "It's pretty much impossible to put into words," said Hamilton shortly after finishing, “It's been such a long journey - all the sacrifices we've made, I'm so thrilled to do this for everyone.” [via Formula1.com]
