Kaylen Frederick, Roberto Faria and Ayrton Simmons were the top three finishers in the final race of the season at Silverstone. Here's how they reacted at the end of the race. 

Winner & champion, Kaylen Frederick, Carlin:
"It feels absolutely amazing, I think it'll only really settle in tomorrow morning when I wake up, I'm still fresh from the race at the moment! We didn't put a foot wrong, we had a great start and had amazing pace. I'm just so happy to finally wrap up the championship, we've had a few ups and downs but we kept at it and we put in the work we needed to to catch up and then pull ahead with a really solid gap at the end in terms of points. I'm just so grateful, so many people have put in so much effort for this year and made so many sacrifices so I'm just so grateful I could bring it home for them. 

"It seems to be the case [big wins], we've been pretty unstoppable once we've got out in the lead. There really wasn't too much to it besides from managing tyres a little bit. So it was an enjoyable last cruise in this car!"

Second, Roberto Faria, Fortec Motorsports:
"It's amazing, my first podium! I had the pace but Frederick was just really fast. I had a good start and I overtook Maini around the outside, but I just couldn't follow Frederick, but it's a good result overall. 

"I was able to manage the tyres and at the end my pace was really fast, but it was just too tough to follow Frederick! Every round I've done I've been learning and that's why I'm here, I'm learning to fight for the championship next year. I'm the youngest driver on the grid, so it's a good result to end the year."

Third, Ayrton Simmons, JHR Developments:
"I've absolutely enjoyed this weekend. It's been tough and a lot of hard work, day and night, and the team have done an amazing job. Two podiums is what they deserve. 

"I think the team are now in a position where they could be title contenders for next year. I'm very happy with the work that we've done and very pleased for the whole effort. We got a good start in the race, it was tricky as the inside line was a bit wet but I was on the drier bit which was fortunate! I nearly got past the Fortec car but couldn't manage it in the end and had to settle for P3 and couldn't do much more from there."
