Sebastian Vettel struggled to find the right words to describe his achievement in Brazil where he became one of three drivers to have secured three consecutive championships.
The Red Bull driver recovered to sixth from last having spun after contact with Bruno Senna at turn four, and says everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong.
"It is very difficult to find the right words especially after the race today - what could go wrong went wrong," said the German. "But we always kept believing, instead of getting angry or frustrated.
"I think there are two guys who have done that [secured three consecutive championships - Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher] before, obviously you need be in the right place at the right time, but I also believe that you can create your own luck."
The 25-year-old also became the youngest triple champion having taken the record from the late Ayrton Senna.
"We are in Sao Paulo here, where Ayrton Senna was born and came from and the place where he was buried and to come here and win for the third time the championship I don't really know what to say."
He proceeded to thank the team for their hard work.
"I have to say a big thanks to everyone in the team - for you this sounds like a standard phrase and sometimes we get criticised for bringing out standard phrases, I feel like one of the guys at the team. I don't feel more important or less important and I drive the car. What we achieved today was what we have been working for since I joined the team; it is a massive amount of work getting done through the whole year."
