I’ll be ready for anything – Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton took pole position on Saturday for the Brazilian Grand Prix with Mercedes teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg joining the triple F1 world champion on the front row.

The Brit won his 60th career pole position on Saturday, which means he’s only the third driver in F1 history to achieve that highland. Michael Schumacher has the all-time record with 68 and the late Ayrton Senna has 65.

Despite the potential for rain on Sunday in Sao Paulo, Hamilton remains self-confident.

“I don’t remember every single qualifying session we’ve had. I felt quite comfortable in qualifying as I have all through the weekend. Nico has been getting quicker, but I’ve had him covered through the weekend,” Hamilton said.

“It’s remarkable when you think about what we’ve done with this team to have as many poles,” he added, noting Mercedes has now achieved its 19th pole in 20 races, a new F1 record for any team.

“It’s a true sign of teamwork. It’s the best possible outcome… only my second pole here, it’s a track I’ve really struggled with, so happy to be at the front.”

“I don’t really mind what the weather brings tomorrow. I’ll be ready for anything,” the Brit added. Although he’s not won a race here, he did famously secure his first of his three World Championships here in the rain in 2008.
