Berlin: "Yes, I cried under my helmet," Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel has admitted to German daily Bild on Tuesday, two days after winning the world title for the third season in a row in Brazil.

"And fortunately the radio was broken so you didn't have to hear me cry like in 2010," he said, referring to the oft repeated moment, on German TV, from two years ago when he cried openly into the microphone after his first world title.

At 25, Vettel is the youngest driver in history to achieve the hat-trick of world crowns, having finished sixth at the Brazilian Grand Prix, and said he felt a flood of emotions when he entered the final kilometre in Sao Paulo.
