Lewis Hamilton threatens to quit over F1 controversy

Lewis Hamilton threatens to quit over F1 controversy

In the Mexican Grand Prix, both Ferrari drivers finished ahead of both Mercedes drivers, as Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen finished in second and third place to score 18 points and 15 points, respectively, while Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas finished in fourth and fifth to score 12 points and 10 points, respectively.

"We all know to keep a gap".

Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bulls were fifth and sixth, but the Australian has a five-place penalty.

"I was making sure I had the gap to the driver in front, but then all of a sudden I saw a auto coming out of Turn 11 at high speed so I was like 'oh my God is that someone on a flying lap?'" Is that someone coming on a lap?' So I went left, but he was going left.

Behind the early pacesetter, Ferrari pair Raikkonen and Vettel were like-for-like, both going 0.247s slower, while Hamilton was also narrowly behind.

Faulty equipment blamed for American school 'active shooter' report
The school district said that parents who planned to drive their children to school should not do so. Topsail High, Topsail Middle, and Topsail Elementary are still on lockdown, the school said.


"Some of it's still a mystery, but there's a lot of areas that we've understood", Hamilton said.

"It's not something I've asked Valtteri if he wants", he added, "but I don't think he's going to want that".

FIA procedure requires drivers to be pushed on and off the weighbridge by officials in order to protect the scales, which sit under each wheel, from being damaged. For most of the weekend, it has been Haas who have been "best of the rest" but it was Sauber's Marcus Ericsson - taking part in what's set to be his penultimate F1 race this weekend - who was the quicker of the midfield pack behind the top three teams.

Fernando Alonso's F1 career continues to fade out with a fizzle, McLaren having the slowest vehicle in Brazil and the Spaniard able to put it only 18th. "And in Abu Dhabi it will be my last race, we will put in a lot of emotions and a lot of effort and we will be out in Q1 because there are no miracles from one race to another".

The German knocked over a cone in front of the scales and then could be seen clapping his hands for the officials to speed up the process during his weighing, as he wanted to quickly make it to the Ferrari garage to change to soft tyres in the changing conditions. I have worked very hard for it and I am confident it will come, but ultimately I don't know.

What Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has to do with Mueller's probe
Timothy Kaine (D-Va.) bested his Trump-endorsed Republican challenger, Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart (R-Manassas). Thus far, however, there are no signs that he's willing to risk the president's wrath by following in Sessions's footsteps.


Hamilton's session was affected by a loose oil breather pipe in the first period, delaying him from clocking any serious laps until half an hour had passed.

"The Stewards first considered whether there was a breach of Article 29.1.a.i".

Vettel's reprimand is non-driving, and he will be allowed to start from the front row alongside Lewis Hamilton on Sunday.

Vettel qualified second, just 0.093 seconds adrift of Hamilton, and late on Saturday evening avoided a penalty for the race despite bizarrely losing his cool when he was called to the weighbridge in his Ferrari.
