Lewis Hamilton’s F1 title hopes have been dealt another major blow with the British driver forced to accept a five place grid penalty at this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix.

Mercedes will change the combustion engine on his car in Interlagos, having noticed a drop in water pressure during the race in Mexico last Sunday.

Hamilton already trails Max Verstappen by 19 points in the title race, and now has it all to do if he’s to claw back any of that deficit this weekend.
