After a dominating qualifying session in the Brazilian Grand Prix qualifying on Friday, Lewis Hamilton secures pole position for the sprint qualifying which will take place on Saturday. This means that Hamilton will start from the front alongside Max Verstappen who came second in the sprint qualifying which will further decide the order of the grid for the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday.
Like the previous qualifying in the Mexican GP, Mercedes were all guns blazing in this qualifying as well with both Hamilton and Bottas putting out fantastic laps to secure P1 and P3 respectively. While Lewis Hamilton has opted to go for a new ICE which will hand him a five-grid penalty on Sunday, it could be a blessing in disguise for Mercedes and Hamilton as they will certainly have more pace than they did the previous weekend.
