Lewis Hamilton wary of Sebastian Vettel after qualifying tyre gamble

Sainz wouldn't rule out Hamilton driving for Ferrari Formula 1: Ferrari facing elimination in 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix
| 11 November, 2018, 16:26

Sebastian Vettel ended in second place, just 0.093s behind his rival, but faces the possibility of a grid penalty after being called before the stewards. Hamilton swerved into Sirotkin's path while trying to avoid the Williams driver, but instead forced him onto the grass, although the Brit accused his fellow driver of a "disrespectful" move in the incident.

This means that Ferrari must remain within 42 points of Mercedes as opposed to 43 points after the Brazilian Grand Prix to remain mathematically eligible to win the constructor championship heading into the season finale, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

"I think it's better if I don't say anything", said Vettel afterwards.

Valtteri Bottas starts third for Mercedes as the Silver Arrows bid to become only the second team in history to win five consecutive constructors' championships. "They shouldn't call us like that". Is that someone coming on a lap?' So I went left, but he was going left.

"However, we are actually quite even in terms of the overall year performance with Ferrari".

In addition to his other misdemeanours, he also drove at a steward who was standing in his way preventing him going on the scales until they were ready.

Ericsson has been dropped by Sauber for next season and is to race in Indycars in the United States, although he will remain the team's reserve driver. "I think it depends a lot more on the job that you do at the start, to get everything right then a little bit of difference on the tyres". I think calling you to the bridge before you've set a lap, they're kind of controlling your qualifying session, which I think is a bit unfair so from that point of view I will sympathise with Seb.


"I'm hoping this weekend we can get the auto into the right place and fight the guys, and the Red Bulls and Ferraris who have seemed to come back more into shooting range".

But the Englishman started the weekend he felt as much pressure as he did when the title fight was still alive and his pole position on Saturday was in sharp contrast to events in the corresponding qualifying session a year ago in Brazil when he crashed out.

"The races have been the same from July so there are no surprises", said Alonso.

Pierre Gasly, who will succeed Ricciardo at Red Bull, was ninth for Toro Rosso and Charles Leclerc, the Monegasque prodigy who will join Ferrari next year, was 10th for Sauber.

With team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne last of all, the only vehicle Alonso could beat was the Williams of Lance Stroll.

"Obviously, the last race was a tough one to swallow and probably the winter will be as well", said the four-time world champion. Ferrari are very quick this weekend, but we did a lot of work to make sure we are ready.

"But he's champion, he knows what he's doing, and it didn't change my position at the end of the day".
