Hamilton still targeting victory in Mexico

Verstappen 'super annoyed' as pole slips away

With title contenders Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton colliding, and going to the back of the field, Verstappen had a free run and the team's biggest problem was to rein in his enthusiasm.

There was no note of hubris in the comments of Hamilton Sr as he stood among the diggers excavating his latest construction venture, just the observation of an outsider who watches as his son commands F1 week by week to become a legend in his own racing lifetime.

The collision saw Hamilton fall to the back of the pack, but the 32-year-old Briton climbed his way back to finish ninth and win the title before the Brazilian Grand Prix next weekend. Winning here would be, seeing the crowd today, it is such a spectacle here with the camera from above, and it looks incredible.

If temperatures remain warm - it was nearly 40 degrees Celsius during second practice on Friday - the soft will be an appealing option given the fact it is designed to work better at high temperatures than the super-soft, which has a much lower working range. Dennis replied: "Phone me in nine years and I'll sort you a deal".

Up front, Esteban Ocon ran a strong third, ahead of Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez, Kimi Raikkonen and Lance Stroll.

Mercedes technical director James Allison added: "Although we felt that we were in the hunt heading into qualifying, we found ourselves on the back foot in all three sessions with a car that was not quite on the same pace as the Red Bull and Ferrari".

The most successful British driver of all time, and the country's first four-times champion, had a rollercoaster afternoon before finishing ninth and wrapping things up with two races to spare. I try not to leave any stone unturned in my preparation and that is the team philosophy.

However, Verstappen was quick to proclaim his innocence, telling Sky Sports: "There is no incident, for me".

Hamilton has an unassailable lead of 56 points with two races, worth a total of 50, remaining in Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

"I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car", he said.

"This was one of the easiest races of my career". When you're world champion, you're world champion, it's very simple.

Federer's 95th ATP tournament win - the eighth in his hometown Basel event - lifted him out of a tie with Ivan Lendl, trailing only Jimmy Connors, who has 109. "Congratulations to him. It is his day".

Comparing sportsmen of different eras with accuracy and objectivity is difficult enough at the best of times, but especially so in motorsport, where machines play a huge role in determining results. I'm so proud to be a part of it. "I don't fear him, I like racing with him".

Hamilton's championship makes him the most decorated British driver in F-1 history, passing Sir Jackie Stewart.

"It's a great podium to be on, which last year I think I should have been on already but I missed out at the very last moment but luckily now no penalties". "And only you can do it". "So winning here on Mexican soil would be pretty neat".
