  • Sebastian Vettel Italian GP 2018

"It's not something I've asked Valtteri if he wants but I don't think he's going to want that".

Lewis Hamilton makes an emotional return to the scene of his greatest early-career pain and joy this weekend when he leads Mercedes' bid to seal a fifth consecutive constructors' world championship.

Even with these results, Ferrari only managed to outscore Mercedes by 11 points, so it will be extremely challenging for them to outscore them by at least 13 points in the Brazilian Grand Prix to take the constructor championship battle to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. "I think 18 was probably the best back in the day", he added.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen qualified fifth with Australian teammate Daniel Ricciardo sixth but dropping five places for Sunday's race due to a penalty for having a turbocharger replaced. 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.

Hamilton's session was affected by a loose oil breather pipe in the first period, delaying him from clocking any serious laps until half an hour had passed. "We did qualifying. I think we talk about qualifying".

The Mercedes driver may face punishment for two separate incidents involving Sergey Sirotkin and Kimi Raikkonen during qualifying.

Speaking before Hamilton's comments - which came after the Briton secured pole position - Sirotkin himself did not blame Hamilton for impacting his qualifying, and the stewards have so far not chosen to investigate the incident despite the pair coming close to contact.

The Brazilian race is the penultimate GP of the season, with Abu Dhabi closing it on November 25. "The pace doesn't seem too bad, so we just have to keep working on it and improving it", said Hamilton.

Ricciardo will have a five-place grid penalty after the team changed the turbocharger on his vehicle before the start of track action.

Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott said a "very significant, risky weather pattern" would continue through the end of the weekend. Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had grown to almost 110 square miles (285 square kilometers).

"Obviously with the weather going up and down, and the Ferraris being quick this weekend, I'm going with my engineer to get the vehicle in the best shape".

He beat team-mate Charles Leclerc, who is moving to Ferrari to partner Vettel next season in a swap with Raikkonen, by 0.196secs.

Romain Grosjean of Haas and Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly round out the top 10.

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

Upon entering the pitlane Vettel was called into the weighbridge but the scales were coned off.

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

Next season will end in December, the latest finish since 1963, but Germany, Britain, Italy and Spain do not as yet have contracts beyond then.

"Ferrari are incredibly quick this weekend".
