Hamilton says F1 will miss departing Alonso

Hamilton says F1 will miss departing Alonso

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen finished third ahead of teammate Daniel Ricciardo for a fifth straight podium.

"It's nice to be on top of the timesheets, but we now need to build on that, we need to try and make the right set-up changes and I also need to find more performance from myself", he said.

Hamilton's 11th win of the campaign matches his tally from the 2014 season and sees him surpass the 3,000-point marker, becoming the first driver to achieve that feat.

Verstappen and Ricciardo made light work of overtaking Bottas, who finished fifth, raising questions again about the Finnish driver's ability to withstand pressure in a season where he has not won. I know he is going to come back strong.

Although Alonso is leaving the door open for a potential return to F1, he said he would be happy to walk away with Sunday's race as his final grand prix.

"Men In Black" star Smith was on hand in the United Arab Emirates to take in the final engagement on the 2018 Formula 1 calendar and, in a tongue-in-cheek video posted to Instagram by Hamilton's Mercedes team, Smith informs a bound Hamilton that he wants to take his place in the race.

"Fernando is a true legend".

For Acronis partner Williams Racing, the year has been a challenging one but with preparations for 2019 long since underway, the team hopes to finish the season on a positive note before setting its sights on a more prosperous next season.

Verstappen, at the centre of attention in Brazil after a collision with Force India back-marker Esteban Ocon that cost him victory and led to a post-race confrontation, can on Saturday become the sport's youngest driver to take pole position.

"It's been a real honour and a privilege racing against Sebastian", he said.

"It was not an easy race", he said.

The 39-year-old, joining Sauber next season, still ended third overall in the championship, two points ahead of Verstappen.

"But of course I prefer sometimes maybe to win up a race and then blow up one rather than be consistently slow!" "There's fire.There's fire.Get me out".

Nico Hulkenberg telling the Renault garage that he was OK following his dramatic somersault into the wall following a touch of contact with Romain Grosjean's Haas. "There's fire", the shaken German shouted over the radio. I saw them [Hamilton and Vettel] doing donuts at Turn 8 and then I saw one vehicle on the left and one auto on the right and they kept going like this until the finish line.
