The result of the yesterday’s qualifying session is as follows:

Newly crowned 5-time World Champion, Lewis Hamilton got the pole by 0.093, leaving Sebastian Vettel behind him, being second. Their teammates occupied the second row, Kimi Raikkonen made it up to 3rd  place, followed by Valtteri Bottas on the 4th.

Red Bull Racing team managed to finish the qualification on the third row, Max Verstappen 5th and Daniel Ricciardo 6th respectively.

Only two Ferrari’s drivers will start the race on the Soft tyres, while the other eight out of top-10 will use Supersoft.

Pirelli has brought three types of compounds for the Brazilian Grand Prix –  white Medium, yellow Soft and red Supersoft. Here's which compounds every driver still has available for the race.

Pirelli has also revealed the quickest strategy for the race:

“Quickest is a one-stopper (provided conditions are warm). Start on soft for 32-36 laps, then medium to the finish. Alternatively, start on supersoft for 25-30 laps, then medium to the finish.

In warm conditions, a two-stopper is nearly as quick as a one-stopper. Best two-stopper: two stints on supersoft of 20-22 laps each, then soft to the finish.

If conditions are cooler, similar to Friday, the quickest strategy is a one stopper: start on supersoft for 27-33 laps, then soft to the finish. Alternatively, start on supersoft for 25-30 laps, then medium to the finish.”

As for the power unit changes and penalties ahead of the Grand Prix, let’s overview the below small list.

  • Daniel Ricciardo will use a new gearbox and a new turbocharger(TC), receiving a 5 place grid penalty for the latter.
  • Lewis Hamilton, Lance Stroll, Kevin Magnussen, Carlos Sainz and Esteban Ocon have also changed the gearboxes to the new ones, but only Ocon was given a penalty.
