Lewis Hamilton's victory ended with the qualification of the Brazilian Grand Prix, the second Sebastian Vettel, but his German position was threatened for some time, because after qualifying he was followed against him. The Ferrari driver disagreed with this while Hamilton was hit by Sergey Szirotkini, who was criticized for his subsequent dismissive maneuvers. More or less pleased with Red Bull, Valtteri Bottas, but you can not say that – the Finnish driver is sure that he would gain pole position based on his speed.

He gained pole position Lewis Hamilton at the end of qualifying for Brazil's GP that Q1 could have been seriously damaged by his car – Sergei Szirotkin was forced to drive behind Mercedes 44 on the road. In this case, Hamilton blames Oman, who, in his opinion, made an irresponsible maneuver. The event is not a surprise for sports supervisors.
"Everyone was in the circle of escorts, me, Sergei and people in front of me He remembered the British pilot. – Valtteri was right in front of me and he took the time to make room for himself, so I had to do it. I was sure that I left enough room and suddenly saw a car approaching speed and thought, gentlemen, that someone could hurry? That's why I went to the left, but he came to the left, but it was not a quick turn, so I do not know what he thinks. We all know that we have to leave enough space, but that was disrespectful. I tried to get out of the way, but then I slowed down in the bend. It was a bit weird and totally unnecessary, because there was a lot of room for it, but I hope you'll learn it. "
There was a strange fall Sebastian Vettel also in the second qualification stage. Ferrari driver was called to random discretion, during which he impatiently insisted on the typical procedures of the timekeeper. The engine also appeared in his car, and Vettel left the scooter himself – destroying it. That's why he started the exams against him, but the sport supervisors did not finish with him, and he was irritated by the case after the chronometer.
"I think it's better if I do not say anything, I mean, they should not challenge when circumstances change in this way because I think it's unfair, so I wanted to hurry up." It's clear what happened. " Said Vettel.
Thirdly, he closed the qualification Valtteri Bottas, who is not satisfied with the result, because he is sure that his speed would be a good start for him.
"I'm not far away, but the differences on this track are always small – says Finn. – I knew that this weekend I reached the pole and I was there, but I did not have a beginning. On the second try I was better than two tenths of a second, but I missed everything in the last corner and back straight, which was quite depressing. "
6th place Daniel Ricciardo You can start from position 11 on Sunday, but you can be sure about the performance of your car. Of course, he is not happy that he again kidnapped his teammate, Max Verstappenta, but because he did not decide who could start from the first place, he did not manage to make a smaller defeat.
"Max was two quarters faster and this is the difference between the past, but this battle did not hit the pole, so it's a bit more bearable – says the driver of Red Bull. – Everything went well, but from the eleventh place I will have some work, but I have the impression that I have the right car. At the end there was no bad speed with a small fuel, so we can be good on a Sunday afternoon."
Max Verstappen is more or less pleased with the new problem that often hits Red Bull in the qualification. The Netherlands, however, do not care because they know that they would not achieve better results with slightly better performance.
"I think the balance of the car is not the best this year, but I do not think it will change this world. We will be close to Kimi, so that's all. I hope that today's configuration will make it easier for me to be on Sunday when it gets a bit warmer." Verstappen said.
Grand Prix of Brazil Sunday starts at 18.10 of the Hungarian time.
