    Vettel didn't put his sectors together. But with two Ferraris in the top three and Hamilton at the back through his own fault, we shouldn't complain too much.

    Ferrari had the car to take pole today atleast in the hands of vet. I think he missed his 51st pole. So he was disappointed

    These are the best sectors, it still wouldn't have been enough compared to best sectors by Bottas.
    Bottas 17.299 34.773 16.226 1:08.322 Best Sectors combined: 1.08.298
    Vettel 17.370 34.680 16.257 1:08.360 Best Sectors combined: 1.08.307
    Raikkonen 17.364 34.804 16.370 1:08.538 Best Sectors combined: 1.08.538

    Yes, but track generally improves by a 0.1-0.2 from the beginning to the end of Q3. Vettel was only down by 0.009s and later said he chickened in T1 which confirms his S1 deficit.

    We don't know what laptime Hamilton could have done, if he had not crashed. Bottas usually leaves a few tenths in quali compared to him.

    well Vettel hasn't done too well from pole this year, so maybe starting P2 is a sign we're going to win

    By the way RBR did very well to retain Verstappen, he was again 4 tenths faster than Daniel today.

    Not really. Mercedes knows they have a decent 2nd driver who can up his game when their No.1 driver fails.

    Unfortunately for Ferrari, i cant say the same thing.

    with Max on the second row, anything can happen, and as Murray Walker used to say, it usually does.

    Speculation, Ham crash was due to a failure in the new “upgraded for 2018” suspension Mercedes is testing.

    I'd rather we had a win tomorrow than pole today, hopefully we can play the team game and get the better of Bottas, as long as Max doesn't spoil it. Problems for HAM just came too late when it no longer really matters.

    Our race pace was better than Bottas, and RBR was similar than us, Ham had better pace.

    “TODAY IT WAS CLOSE, AND TOMORROW…”

    Seb and Kimi confident for the race after tight qualifying battle

    Interlagos, November 11th – Scuderia Ferrari has been a regular on the front row of the grid, including taking two pole positions, since the last Singapore Grand Prix and Brazil was no exception today as Sebastian topped the time sheet right up to the last run in Q3 and lost pole to Bottas by a mere 38 milliseconds, while Kimi lined up right behind his team-mate. Tomorrow, in what are expected to be warmer and dry conditions, the 71-lap race promises to provide fans with lots of excitement.
    “We have improved since Friday, and that’s the important thing” said Seb. “I was happy with my car today, but in my last run, I was perhaps a bit too shy in braking for the first corner. I had a better run at the end of my out-lap, so there was probably more grip than I expected there. In the last sector, I knew I could make up for some of the lost time, and I did, but it wasn’t enough. However, it was very close, and we’re usually even closer in race conditions, so my motivation is high for tomorrow and I’ll being aiming for a win”.
    “The feeling with the car was good most of the time” commented Kimi, “but somehow the laps were always a bit tricky, with everybody trying to get their free space. When the tyres switched on well, then everything was easier, but with the traffic in the out-lap it was not always the case. Some sets were feeling better than others purely because of having a bit better out-lap. It was a bit hard to trust them and not get a front lock-up at the first corner. Overall the car itself was nice to drive when the tires worked, so it’s a bit of a shame. It was not the most straightforward qualifying but in the end it was a decent result. I think we did a solid job today, we can consider it a good team result. For sure there was more to get, but the race is tomorrow and it’s going to be long. For the start we’ll try our best, the first corner is quite tight, so we’ll try to make a good start and see what we can get”.

    TOP SPEEDS: Verstappen(P4) & Ricciardo(P5) loses 6-7kph to the Mercedes & Ferrari drivers at the end of the pit straight here. Alonso(P7) & Vandoorne(P13) loses a staggering 14-15kph!

    Stroll is P18.

    The fastest theoretical strategy for 71-lap tomorrow is a one-stopper: start on supersoft, change to soft between lap 26 and 32.


    Second-fastest strategy is a two-stopper. Two supersoft stints of 22 laps each, then soft to the flag (2/2).

    Massa just told us that Sainz told him he deliberately got in his way as payback for spoiling his long run in FP. Felipe off to talk to Charlie.
