Mercedes team robbed at gunpoint in Brazil

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.

This is the first time Hamilton has gone out in Q1 since Belgium 2016 - 27 races ago.

Hamilton, who won his fourth Formula One championship two week ago in Mexico, walked away from the auto without appearing injured and will start at the back of the grid on Sunday.

"In a few occasions, not as many as I would have wanted, I managed to be ahead of him", Bottas told Sky Sports News.

"I'm okay. It happened really quickly".

"However, it was very close, and we're usually even closer in race conditions, so my motivation is high for tomorrow and I'll being aiming for a win".
