Hamilton fastest in Brazilian Grand Prix practice

News Hour:

Triple world champion Lewis Hamilton reminded Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg that he will not hand over his Formula One title without a fight after dominating Friday practice at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The Briton, 19 points behind the German with two races remaining, was fastest in both sessions at a hot and sunny Interlagos with his best lap of one minute 11.895 seconds set on soft compound tyres in the morning.

Rosberg was third, and 0.230 off the pace in that session, but ended the day second on the afternoon timesheets and just 0.030 slower.

“It’s been a good day. We got through all of our run programmes and the car is feeling really good,” Hamilton, who is seeking his third win in a row, told reporters.
