Lewis Hamilton not ruling out Ferrari move

"I've never, ever personally classified myself as the best", Lewis Hamilton said.

"In general Interlagos doesn't suit our auto that well, but after finishing on the podium there in 2016 and winning last week in Mexico, anything can happen in the race", said Verstappen. He has been better out of the vehicle.

"I'm very, very fortunate to be up here now, obviously with more than most people have, and I don't take that for granted".

"I think one of the reasons I wanted to move was to go somewhere else and see if you could do something special somewhere else".

"We had times when the vehicle was good enough to win and times when the auto was not good enough to win, and he was very stable".

"The way I've always approached it is I've just been really thankful for the ones I have. But this year that was definitely one of the key factors".

With Hamilton having signed a two-year contract extension in July to remain with Mercedes through at least the 2020 season, it would not be insane to believe that he can surpass Schumacher's wins record and at least tie his championships record.

At the age of 33 years, Lewis Hamilton is in the flawless position to rally one of the legendary records in F1 history.

Tria also noted that there have been other countries which deviated from the rules in the past, according to the same official. Asked whether some deal or compromise could be found between Brussels and Rome, Moscovici said: "No".

"That exists at Mercedes, and that is why he is very active".

With no Brazilian driver in the race, Felipe Massa's departure at the end of a year ago ending an unbroken line extending over four decades, the carnival atmosphere may be slightly more muted.

For Mercedes to be denied at Sao Paulo's atmospheric Interlagos circuit, Ferrari will have to score 13 points more than Mercedes - a feat it has managed only twice in 19 races so far this year.

"We have a big battle on our hands for the Constructors' title and we have lost ground to Ferrari in each of the past race weekends - even though we had the base performance to do better".

"As long as we provide a auto that is competitive to win championships and he continues to drive like he does, this can be a relationship that goes forever", Wolff told Sky F1.

"The job is not done yet".

"But there is a constructors' championship still out there that we want to secure and win, and it is not easy as you can see, and I think you can only count records once you close the book".
