SSao Paulo (AP) – The tension is rising. Mercedes can win for the fifth consecutive time in the championship of constructors in Brazil.
Star Silver Arrow Lewis Hamilton will start on Sunday (18.10 CET) on Autodrome José Carlos Pace from the first. The Briton has Sebastian Vettel in the neck. The German wants to keep the opportunity for the first world championship in Formula 1 with Ferrari since 2008.
A little below 340 meters from the starting position of one to the first corner. Lewis Hamilton started with the first place at the age of ninety-nine and the other was Sebastian Vettel. Last year, the German Ferrari star was taken over by the former colleague Valtteri Bottas from the very beginning and eventually won the Grand Prix. "Much depends on what we do at the start," said Vettel. Failure to violate regulations when weighing his car in qualifications does not burden him. Because racing leaders spoke only with a warning and a fine against Heppenheimer.
Ferrari has taken on the risk of qualifying for the tires – and could be in the race. Sebastian Vettel (2nd) and Kimi Raikkonen (4th) attack the penultimate Grand Prix season on more durable soft tires. Lewis Hamilton (1) and Valtteri Bottas (3) must start with soft and quicker Supersoft blends. However, they offer you more grip for the first few meters. The director of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff said that they would get tires for their pilots and avoid blisters on tires. But, occasionally it occasionally falls on the Grand Prix southwest of Sao Paolo, we should not ignore the time factor.
Lewis Hamilton was twice-five times world champion. Now he really wants to win the constructors' championship with Mercedes – this would be the fifth time. Hamilton was in Brazil as motivated as a driver's title, said Mercedes's boss Toto Wolff about his British star driver. Ferrari has at least 13 points to replace Mercedes, otherwise Silver Arrows may already launch the next victory in Sao Paulo. "We will fight to the end," said Vettel head coach Maurizio Arrivabene.
