Lewis Hamilton title woe as Brit faces DISQUALIFICATION after trouncing Max Verstappen for Brazilian GP sprint pole

LEWIS HAMILTON’S hopes of a record-breaking eighth F1 world title could be up in smoke after a potential breach of the regulations during qualifying in Brazil. If Hamilton’s Silver Arrow has breached the technical regulations he could be disqualified. This would see him start at the back of the grid for sprint qualifying, which will determine the grid for Sunday’s Grand Prix. It has overshadowed what appeared to be a turning point for Mercedes in the championship, after Hamilton showed incredible pace to beat Verstappen by 0.4 seconds. Before the rear wing was reported to the FIA, Hamilton was amazed to see how much Mercedes had improved since the Mexico GP. He said: “We’ve been working so hard to get this car right, it’s been tough. Although Verstappen wasn’t shocked to see his rival thriving with his fresh Mercedes-powered engine.
