Lewis Hamilton revealed his joy at taking his second F1 race win in Sunday's United States Grand Prix.
Hamilton led a McLaren one-two ahead of team-mate Fernando Alonso at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, increasing his lead over Alonso at the top of the Drivers' Championship to 10 points.
"What a dream," said the young British star, who won in Canada last week in his rookie season.
"To come to two circuits (Montreal and Indianapolis) that I didn't know and to really come out with such pace and to see the team moving forward is great. I hoped maybe I could get a podium at some point but I have been on the podium the last seven races. It's insane."
Unlike in Montreal, Hamilton was forced to withstand relentless pressure from his McLaren team-mate to clinch victory.
"The first couple of laps were close and then I managed to pull a slight gap. In the middle sting my tyres just started to drain and Fernando was right up my tail.
"It was very tough, he fought very well but at the end I managed to pull a gap which I was able to maintain and control the race."
