Brazilian GP: Mercedes dominate practice sessions

Brazilian GP: Mercedes dominate practice sessions

The four-time world champion, who has a 15-point advantage over Bottas in the battle to finish as runner-up to Hamilton, said: "I'd love to be ahead".

In a shocking news ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix this Sunday, members of 2017 Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton's team were robbed at gunpoint in Brazil. Gun shots fired, gun held at ones head.

Hamilton says multiple people on his team were held at gunpoint but a Mercedes official tell us they can only confirm one member was robbed. The Mercedes-AMG F1 crew were returning back to their hotel from the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace circuit in Sao Paulo, where their minibus was ambushed by armed men at around 10 pm (local time).

Britain's Jenson Button was the victim of an attempted robbery in 2010, the year after he won the title with Brawn GP, but the police driver smashed his way through traffic to escape when the gunmen were seen approaching.

Deepika also wanted to celebrate the fact that her song Ghoomar from Padmavati has been garnering praises from all over. She was finishing some patchwork but he asked her to attend the event and complete her shoot after that.

Hamilton reacted to the incident on twitter and called on the FIA to review the safety procedures surrounding the event. In a statement, Mercedes said, "Valuables were stolen but everybody is safe and uninjured which is the main thing". Bottas said the incident spurred him on to extract even more out of his performance and seal his third pole in F1.

Hamilton was resigned to his first Q1 knockout in over a year when he crashed out of qualifying at Interlagos on Saturday, slamming into the barrier on his first flying lap.

Sunday's race is the penultimate round of the season. In 2016, ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix, a chauffeur-driven auto was looted by a gunman as a team member was being transported to the hotel from the Mexico airport.
