Lewis Hamilton no fan of F1 calendar expansion

Looking back on this year, in which his title challenge faded in the second half of the season, he said: "There is a lot of stuff that happened this year and we will, as a team and as an individual, be able to learn from it and take it forward and raise the bar next year".

"I'm hoping this weekend we can get the vehicle into the right place, so we can fight the Red Bulls and the Ferraris, who have seemed to come back more into shooting range".

Hamilton, 33, is keen to add to his tally this weekend of just one victory at the Interlagos circuit and suggested he will not step aside for Bottas, despite the Finn giving up his victory for the Briton at September's Russian Grand Prix.

The British driver, who celebrated his title triumph in California, has failed to win a race after clinching the championship with rounds to spare.

"Around my feet, I mean, I'd be proud if it was what you think it is, but it's not!" "I'm always really open with my set-up, so I'll continue to do so". It's a lot of commitment for all of us and a lot of time away from families, and the seasons are getting longer and the off time is getting shorter. The turnaround is so short, you start preparing for your next season often as soon as the season is done.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo was fourth, 0.384secs off his team-mate, ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.

"Getting your mind turned".

Red Bull's Max Verstappen headed Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes in first practice at the Brazilian Grand Prix. "That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time".

Vettel is a four-time world champion and has finished second in the drivers' championship on three occasions.

Mercedes leads Ferrari in the constructor's championship by 55 points. "Whoever has the most points has won it".

Vettel has missed out on the championship twice in the last two years despite having a auto capable of challenging rivals Mercedes for victories. That said, when you've won five world drivers' championships, you probably have carte blanche to dress as you like.

"That's what we're trying to do... and we'll see in two races' time".

"I still have a mission here and I still want to win".
