  • Lewis Hamilton: Valtteri Bottas won't want a gifted Formula 1 win

After facing mathematical elimination from 2018 Formula 1 constructor championship contention in the 19th race of the 21-race season, the Mexican Grand Prix, but not being eliminated in this race, Scuderia Ferrari are set to face mathematical elimination from constructor championship contention once again in the season's penultimate race, the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Brazil and the United Arab Emirates are the final two races of the season, the latter coming on November 25, eight months after the curtain-raiser in Melbourne.

"It is not always the case you find all the solutions", Hamilton said, "so I am confident everyone has worked as hard as they can to rectify it and push forward but it might take this race and even the next race before we fully understand it".

The 2019 schedule also has 21 races but will run from mid-March to early December, while owner Liberty Media is keen to add further grands prix.

"The seasons are getting longer, and the off-time is getting shorter, so from a competitor's point of view the turnaround is short". "I want to win by winning the race myself".

Valtteri Bottas topped another incredibly tight practice session ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix as Mercedes and Ferrari opened up a gap to Red Bull. Getting your mind turned.

Hamilton will on Friday return to his Mercedes cockpit for the first time since claiming his fifth championship in Mexico a fortnight ago. So, given Mercedes are guaranteed to win more races than Ferrari then the Silver Arrows need just 31 points to secure the title.

England remove Sri Lankas top three with victory in sight
This earned England it's biggest win against Sri Lanka in terms of runs, eclipsing a 137-run win at Lord's in 1991. Moeen claimed 4-71 as he and fellow spinners Leach and Adil Rashid shared eight of the 10 Sri Lankan wickets.

"Obviously, we're not in a good position, but we're still in it and we'll do our best..."

This season has 21 races, as does 2019, but Formula One has also been talking to Miami for a US street race and Zandvoort in the Netherlands about a return to the coastal circuit last visited in 1985.

"The team are not going to make that call", Hamilton added.

"For sure he won it", he said. "He won it. Fair play and congratulations to him".

As a result, Mercedes have clinched the tiebreaker if the two teams end up tying in points when the season concludes.

"There's a drivers' championship, but if you go to any team they're probably going to say this is more important for them - the constructors' championship more than the drivers".

"The last two races have been pretty shocking compared to our normal standings", Hamilton acknowledged.
