Champion Hamilton on pole in Brazil

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton celebrates after qualifying in pole position for Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton handed Mercedes their 100th pole position at the Brazilian Grand Prix on Saturday while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel qualified second but faced a stewards’ investigation for a weighbridge incident.

The pole was a record-extending 82nd of Hamilton’s career and his 10th of a season that has already seen the Briton clinch his fifth world championship.

Mercedes will seal the constructors’ title at Interlagos on Sunday unless Ferrari outscore them by 13 points.
