Lewis Hamilton didn’t attend post-qualifying photo session

Interestingly, the champion Lewis Hamilton didn’t appear for the post-qualifying photo session — top-three qualifiers photo…leaving the smiling compatriots of Rosberg and Vettel to do the honours.

Again mind games -– Hamilton will more than likely be right in the post-event picture again tomorrow as the Mercedes drivers once more face off into Turn One battle

Nico Rosberg has set his fifth consecutive pole position after narrowly edged team-mate Lewis Hamilton in final qualifying at Interlagos.

The world champion was quickest in both Q1 and Q2 but Rosberg closely beat him out by less than a tenth of a second.

Hamilton pleased with second place

“My main job this year is done now,” he points out, when the media asked how important it is to win the Brazilian GP for the first time tomorrow.

“It was good today actually. I got a really good balance with the car, I was really happy with the work we did with the engineers. The laps were looking quite good. Very good through Q1 and Q2 and Q3 I just wasn’t able to find that small bit of edge.

“At the end, I didn’t maximise the first sector, but the first two sectors were okay.”

I want to win – Rosberg

“I’m pleased with today,” Rosberg says. “It’s the best place to be for tomorrow’s race. Q2 didn’t really go to plan but I got it all together in Q3 and the last lap was on the edge.”

“I’m just thinking about the individual races. I’m here, I want to win, and of course as a side-effect P2 in the championship is there as well to be had, which is better than P3.

“It’s always better to finish on a high than a low, for this season and also thinking about next year.”
