On a damp and overcast Sao Paulo afternoon, it was the 60th pole of the Briton’s career, eight short of Michael Schumacher’s record, and his first in Brazil since 2012 when he was at McLaren. With his title on the line, it was also one of Hamilton’s most important in a roller-coaster season marked by mechanical setbacks. Rosberg will take his first championship if he wins Sunday’s penultimate race of the season but Hamilton, 19 points adrift, showed he will do all he can to take the fight down to the wire in Abu  Dhabi with another dominant  qualifying display.
