A week after claming victory in the first United States Grand Prix in several years, Lewis Hamilton kept on charging and grabbed the pole for the Brazilian Grand Prix at Autódromo José Carlos Pace.
He posted a lap of 1:12.458 seconds just narrowly out qualifying his teammate, Jenson Button, by .055 seconds.
“I think we put ourselves in a really good position and we are just going to do the best that we can from here, working together as a team,” Hamilton said.
Mark Webber will start third just in front of his teammate Sebastian Vettel who will start fourth.
It was just four years ago that Lewis Hamilton secured a championship by winning the Brazilian Grand Prix. He looks to end his season and career with McLaren on a high note by yet another victory before he heads over to Mercedes!
As for Sebastian Vettel and his championship hopes, he needs to finish fourth or better to become a three-time champion. He would be the youngest driver to accomplish the historic crown.
For Fernando Alonso, he needs to finish on the podium just to hold onto his fighting chances to have a chance to overcome thirteen points in order to win the title.
