Lewis Hamilton won the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday, but Benedict Cumberbatch somehow stole the show.

The Sherlock star was unexpectedly on-stage in the aftermath, conducting post-race interviews for a baffled audience.

In fact, general confusion reached the point where "Why is Benedict Cumberbatch" was trending on Twitter.


Why indeed? Perhaps that is a mystery only Sherlock himself can solve.

Where can I comment?
