After an incident-free Malaysian Grand Prix, it was the bizarre sight of Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch interviewing race winner Lewis Hamilton that become the main talking point in Sepang.

The Brit completed a pole-to-flag victory to complete a Mercedes one-two in the second race of the F1 season, yet the presence of Cumberbatch joining the leading drivers on the podium caused much head-stratching.

Cumberbatch, who watched from the Mercedes garage during the race and was also trackside during qualifying on Saturday was cool, calm and extremely composed as he took a break from his day job to quiz Hamilton on his victory.

"That was Incredible. After such a difficult weekend, a long winter, for such a great crowd, I feel so grateful," Hamilton said.

"After such a tragedy a few weeks ago I dedicate this win to those people and their families.
