Hamilton to start from pitlane in Brazil GP

Hamilton to start from pitlane in Brazil GP

Mercedes has confirmed that Lewis Hamilton will begin the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos from the pitlane after spinning out in Saturday's qualifying.

The 2017 world champion lost control and skidded from the track on turn seven of his first lap in Q1, leading to a red flag.

Mercedes will be working overnight to ensure the car has suitably recovered from the incident to take part in the race, and may take the opportunity to make some engine amendments to Hamilton's car, safe in the knowledge that his starting position cannot be negatively impacted.

Hamilton told reporters post-qualifying:

"I think I'm starting from the pit lane so it's not the most exciting, but we can only go forwards from there."

"I think they are making some changes."

Valtteri Bottas secured pole in his team-mate's absence, 0.03 seconds ahead of Sebastian Vettel with a record-breaking lap at the death of Q3.
