Lewis Hamilton to start Brazilian GP from pit lane

Simon Lazenby is joined by Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert to preview the major talking points ahead of the Brazilian GP

Members of Lewis Hamilton's world-championship winning Mercedes team were robbed at gunpoint as they left the Interlagos circuit on Friday night.

World champion Lewis Hamilton crashed out without posting a time at Interlagos, but Bottas ensured there would be a Mercedes at the front of the grid courtesy of a track record lap of one minute and 8.322 seconds. "First of all I'm happy everyone is in one piece and nothing physical happened to anyone but it was a pretty bad situation to be in, and I'm happy everybody is still here".

Vettel's Finnish teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, took third place in FP1, followed by the two Red Bull drivers - Dutchman Max Verstappen and Australia's Daniel Ricciardo - in the fourth and fifth slots, respectively.

Bottas said he felt a responsibility to the team after Hamilton's shock early exit. The laps were getting better and better, but it was all the time very close, so I'm pleased that in the end I could get it all together in Q3, get a good lap and put it on pole. "I was happy with my auto today, but in my last run, I was perhaps a bit too shy in braking for the first corner. It is possible, Sebastian is leading me by 15 points, so we really need to have a strong race here and also in Abu Dhabi".

White House Brushes Off Former Aide's Guilty Plea
A Trump campaign supervisor encouraged Papadopoulos to make the trip "if it is feasible" on August 15, 2016. Trump or campaign officials in conspiring with Russian Federation to affect the outcome of the election.

Bottas will start on pole for the third time in his career after edging out Vettel by only 0.038 seconds and the Finn is braced for a battle. It was a nice lap, but it was close with Sebastian (Vettel).

"I feel good", said Bottas.

Felipe Massa started his final home race weekend in good fashion for Williams to lead the midfielders in P7 as both McLarens made the top 10 with Stoffel Vandoorne in eighth and Fernando Alonso in P10.
