Brazilian Grand Prix LIVE: Lap-by-lap updates and result as Hamilton chases Verstappen

LIVE: Brazilian Grand Prix – Determined Lewis Hamilton up to third in the race after starting 10th on the grid in an action-packed start in Sao Paulo as he closes in on Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez

Lewis Hamilton will have to attempt the impossible in search of victory on Sunday when he starts the Brazilian Grand Prix from tenth position.

The Brit dominated qualifying and climbed 15 places to fifth, only to be handed a five-place penalty after his rear wing was found to have broken technical regulations.

Hamilton’s title rival Max Verstappen gradually got going to finish second in qualifying, behind Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas following the Finn’s excellent drive in Sao Paulo.
