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.
