Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch was a surprise addition to the Formula 1 presenting team on Sunday.

The 37-year-old English actor was in attendance at the Sepang International Circuit, where Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton dominated by winning the race from pole position.

Cumberbatch, who is known for his role on the BBC drama, took to the podium to interview Hamilton, his second-place teammate Nico Rosberg and last season's champion Sebastian Vettel, who came third with Red Bull.
