Bottas clinches pole after Hamilton crash

Brazilian F1 Grand Prix 2017 Qualifying: Saturday's Results, Times, Final Grid

England's Lewis Hamilton, assured of a fourth Drivers' Championship, and Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas guided the Silver Arrows to the fastest times in both rounds on Friday, reports Efe.

Formula One world champ Lewis Hamilton is ballistic after a member of his Mercedes racing team was robbed at gunpoint in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Hamilton, who won his fourth Formula One championship two week ago in Mexico, walked away from the auto without appearing injured and will start at the back of the grid on Sunday.

Bottas heads into the final two races sitting third in the Drivers' Championship and could still climb up to second ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

"First of all I'm happy everyone is in one piece and nothing physical happened to anyone but it was a pretty bad situation to be in, and I'm happy everybody is still here".

"It is what it is, of course it's unfortunate, I tend to just look at it as... challenges are what makes life interesting, and overcoming them makes life meaningful", Hamilton said.

After the entertainment industry and the media, accusations of harassment and sexual assault are gaining the world of sports. In 2004, he argued that the popularity of the women's game could be boosted if the players wore tighter shorts .

"I just need to take whatever bubble of negativity comes from that experience and move forwards and try and grow from it".

Bottas said he felt a responsibility to the team after Hamilton's shock early exit.

"I am still a bit shaken, but it is a good feeling". "It was a nice lap and I was so close with Sebastian through qualifying so it was great to get a good lap in".

Kimi Raikkonen took third for Ferrari, half a second back from Hamilton at the head of the field, with the Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo following in P4 and P5 respectively.

Sergio Perez was sixth for Force India ahead of resurgent two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren Honda, Nico Hulkenberg and his Renault team-mate Carlos Sainz.

He had come in with a huge lead over Vettel and secured the crown despite a ninth-place finish (two points), his worst of the 2017 season.
