Hamilton wary of contact with Vettel at start in Mexico

Hamilton wary of contact with Vettel at start in Mexico

The Mexico Grand Prix will nearly certainly see the 2018 championship wrap up with Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton needing to finish seventh or lower with Sebastian Vettel finishing first to be denied his fifth crown.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo thwarted Red Bull team mate Max Verstappen's hopes of becoming Formula One's youngest ever pole-sitter on Saturday with a lightning qualifying lap at the Mexican Grand Prix.

The title puts him level with Argentinian legend Juan Manuel Fangio, who won five world championships in the 1950s, and behind only Michael Schumacher - the German having won seven.

Ferrari hasn't won the driver's championship since 2007.

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel hugged in a gesture of mutual respect between two drivers with nine Formula One championships between them.

He celebrated by executing "doughnut" wheel spins for the cheering crowd before leaping out of his vehicle and into the arms of his team.

"It's a very unusual feeling right now", Hamilton said as he got out of his auto and celebrated.

"It's a frightful moment", said Vettel, a four-time champion who has finished second two years in a row and three times in his career. I really don't know what happened.

"We need to get the vehicle back [to be sure] but you can see the smoke come out of the back of the auto, 10 laps from the end", he said.

"Number five is incredible". "I was determined to win today".

Growing caravan of migrants pushes deeper into Mexico
Mexico's Government has said throughout the past week that it would register the migrants and process requests for asylum. Mexico's federal government said on October 20 that almost "900 migrants" arrived in the country via unauthorized means.

"The constructors is still out there and we need to perform strong in Brazil". "From there onwards I could do my own race", he said.

Hamilton started third a year ago and a first turn bump from Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel punctured a tire. "There's two more races". It wasn't won here, it was won through a lot of hard work through many races.

"So, naturally, I'm going to be fighting to at least try and gain a position, but, of course, I'm aware of the Bulls ahead".

Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) 1:18.738; 1 lap: 5.

The 21-year-old even frequently instructed his Red Bull team to turn his engine down after watching Ricciardo retire from the race with another mechanical failure.

"All eyes have been on Verstappen, he's dominated all the sessions but when it mattered most, Ricciardo delivered", racing expert Martin Brundle said.

It is a very odd feeling right now, ' Hamilton said after his victory.

"It was a shame to lose Daniel. A party tonight? No, I'm going home!" But in Mexico, that sadness was replaced by anger, as Ricciardo suffered his seventh mechanically-related DNF of the season - and admitted that he was more than ready to hand over his auto to Pierre Gasly for 2019...

For Ferrari, it was a first double podium success in Mexico since 1990 with Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell. "Everything feels hopeless. You know, honestly, now where I am, I don't see the point of coming on Sunday, I don't see the point of doing the next two races".
