Lewis Hamilton unimpressed by plans to add more races to F1 calendar

"It already feels like we are on race number 25 this year, so I don't think more races is going to be a good thing".

At the start of Q2 as the weather conditions were seemingly about to deteriorate, Vettel and teammate Kimi Raikkonen, having completed a lap on supersofts, pitted in order to change to softs in order that they might qualify on the yellow-banded rubber before it began to rain harder.

"It's not something I've asked Valtteri if he wants but I don't think he's going to want that". The German said he felt it was unfair that he was called in to the pits during a critical part of the session with the threat of rain in the air.

"I didn't know whether or not I had the pole".

"I am not going to be here if it gets to 25 races, that's for sure". "We did qualifying. I think we talk about qualifying".

To do it in Brazil they need to outscore Ferrari by 20 points.

Sixers to acquire Jimmy Butler from Timberwolves
The 76ers have had an inconsistent start to the new National Basketball Association season winning eight and losing five games. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook installed the Sixers as 16-1 shots for the crown, down from 30-1.

Raikkonen, who famously won the drivers' title for Ferrari in Brazil in 2007, said that Hamilton deserved to win this year's crown and rejected the idea that his Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel had lost it through team and individual errors. Max Verstappen out-qualified teammate Daniel Ricciardo by 0.002s, although the latter faces a five-place grid penalty for the new turbocharger Red Bull fitted to his auto on Friday.

Sirotkin, who drives for Mercedes customer team Williams, also exonerated Hamilton of blame in his own TV interviews and said he understood the Mercedes driver had been trying to move off the racing line to let him through.

Haas's Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen will start eighth and 10th respectively with Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly sandwiched in between.

Hamilton, meanwhile, avoided punishment after appearing to steer into the path of Sergey Sirotkin during the latter's flying lap during the same segment of qualifying, forcing the Williams driver to dramatically swerve out of the way. Horner said it had been damaged in Mexico by a marshal spraying foam on the auto after he retired from the race.

But he was frustrated when he was called in to have his Ferrari vehicle weighed as rain started to fall. Yesterday we had to do a lot of work overnight and again, the team were really faultless with their efforts so I was so happy when I came across on that first lap. The last lap wasn't that great, if I'm honest.
