Lewis travels to Brazil full of optimism after securing fourth place in Brazil, where he started from pole position last year. "I had a good race in Austin and it felt great to get that under my belt before the end of the season and I'm really looking forward to Brazil," said Lewis. "Interlagos is such a unique track in its location and layout, and I have some great memories from previous races there. The passion of the Brazilian fans is amazing and it's fantastic to see their support over the weekend. We'll be hoping for a smooth weekend but it'll be interesting to see how the predicted weather develops."
Brazil marks the end of Lewis's first year with the team. "It's difficult to believe that the final race of my first season with MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS has come round already as this year seems to have flown by," said Lewis. "We know what we have to achieve this weekend in Sao Paulo and everyone is so fired up to have a good weekend and to be in that second place in the Championship on Sunday afternoon."
