9:57 pm on 19 October 2008

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton has won the Chinese Grand Prix but the battle for the Formula One title will go on to the season finale in Brazil after Ferrari's Felipe Massa finished second.

Briton Hamilton needed to score six points more than Brazilian Massa to become the sport's youngest champion in China.

But he instead extended his lead to seven points with 10 remaining to be won in Sao Paolo next month.
