Hamilton grabs pole position at US GP

Hamilton grabs pole position at US GP

Several teams didn't even bother sending their cars out due to the slippery track.

Lewis Hamilton is one of the greatest F1 drivers ever.

Sebastian Vettel has hit out at the penalty that has further dented his small chances of keeping his championship hopes alive. But he'll start fifth because of a three-spot grid penalty for driving too fast under a red flag during a Friday practice.

Vettel was reported for speeding on Friday after Charles Leclerc of Sauber brought gravel back onto the circuit after a spin to create the need for red flags and a clean-up.

Haas driver Romain Grosjean said drivers have "a couple of milliseconds to slow down" when they are informed of a red flag. The best he can likely hope for is that Hamilton has some kind of qualifying calamity. Red Bull boss Christian Horner had slightly more to say.

This time, it could decide the world championship.

The stewards' sanction, justified by Vettel's failure to slow down sufficiently during the red flag period, was expected following a similar incident involving Force India's Esteban Ocon in Japan. The Australian will start fourth following Vettel's penalty.

Gulf ally UAE hails Saudi reponse on Khashoggi
On Friday they widened their search to a nearby forest, where unnamed officials believe his body may have been disposed of. Trump meanwhile called the Saudi announcement a "good first step", but said what happened to Khashoggi was "unacceptable".

"That was close and I didn't know how close it was going to be when we got down to it", said Hamilton. If I can get track position at the start then I can maybe disrupt their tempo and have a good crack at a podium. I don't have much to lose.

"But, in my opinion, that is not the right thing".

Lewis Hamilton may be on the brink of beating Sebastian Vettel to this year's Formula One title, but insists he is still expecting a Ferrari fightback in the remaining four races.

The Briton, who will be only the third driver to win at least five titles if he scores eight points more than Vettel on Sunday, will share the front row with the German's Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen. Hamilton is gunning for his sixth win in seven years at the Texas track and his 10th of the season.

"The weather was miserable this morning; it looked like it was going to dry up going into FP2 (the second session) but then all of a sudden the heavens opened again", said the champion.

More rain is forecast for final practice and qualifying.

"It's actually a rubbish rule but you know, they've (the race stewards) have got to have consistency because otherwise it makes a bit of a farce of all the regulations if you have a penalty for one race but not at another", Horner told Sky Sports.
