Watch: Lewis Hamilton on why this F1 championship win is his best ever

Formula One world drivers' champion Lewis Hamilton thanked the Mercedes team at a celebration for the team's success at their Brackley headquarters on Monday.

With just this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to go, Hamilton took time out to celebrate a successful year which has seen him win the title for the fourth time while Mercedes took the constructors' crown for the fourth year in succession.

Hamilton, who was greeted by a guard of honour on his arrival, said that this year's title was the most satisfying of his career due to the battle with Ferrari throughout the season.
