    .@MercedesAMGF1 team minibus robbed at gunpoint leaving Interlagos on Friday night; no team members injured .



    Lewis Hamilton‏Verified account @LewisHamilton

    Some of my team were held up at gun point last night leaving the circuit here in Brazil. Gun shots fired, gun held at ones head. This is so upsetting to hear. Please say a prayer for my guys who are here as professionals today even if shaken.

    Just like Toto and Hamilton are protected so should the rest of the Mercedes team. Private security is something Merc can afford for every team member in places where things like these happen.

    Things seem to be getting serious with Toro Rosso and Renault.....Renault thinking they will not supply engines.

    Don't expect to see the Red Bull boys for the next 20 minutes or so They've both been told to get out of their cars, however no issues have been reported as far as we know.

    2017 Brazilian Interlagos GP Practice and Qualifying

    Why so surprised to see Alonso up there? Short circuit, not too much dependent upon engine & McLaren have a good chassis. If at all I’m surprised to see Mercedes times, I expected us to be comfortably ahead here

    to be honest, I had a feeling he'd do well here. I guess his biggest concern will be reliability.

    good point.

    Redbulls have dialed down the engines due to all this Renault/Toro Rosso fiasco to preserve them.....IMO.
