For the first time since the 2016 Belgian GP, Hamilton failed to progress beyond Q1. At that occasion he was set to receive hefty grid penalties and hence preferred not to set a competitive lap time.

Valtteri Bottas clinched his third career pole in Sao Paulo, joining the likes of Jose-Froilan Gonzalez, Tony Brooks, Dan Gurney, Jean-Pierre Jarier, Jody Scheckter, Elio de Angelis and Teo Fabi.

Hamilton climbed up the field from the pitlane to finish fourth. At five previous occasions he has managed to gain 15 places over his starting position. Interestingly, Vettel also finished fourth in this year's Malaysian GP after starting from back of the pack (not in the pitlane, however).

Hamilton continued his run of points-scoring finishes, taking the tally to 24. He's now equal with Michael Schumacher's streak (from Hungary 2001 to Malaysia 2003), but still some way off record holder Raikkonen (27 consecutive points finishes between Bahrain 2012 and Hungary 2013).

Max Verstappen broke the race lap record with a 1m11.044s. It was the second time he had set a fastest lap of a race, the first one being at this very venue last year.

Due to his first lap collision with Romain Grosjean, Esteban Ocon's streak of 27 consecutive race finishes came to an end. It was his first retirement in F1.
