Toyota Gazoo Racing all set for 6 Hours of Bahrain

Toyota Gazoo Racing will bring the curtain down on an emotional and exciting 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season in this weekend’s 6 Hours of Bahrain.

Hamilton wins wet Brazilian Grand Prix, Verstappen steals the show... again!

Lewis HamiltonThe battle to be crowned Formula One World Champion will go down to the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi thanks to Lewis Hamilton producing a trouble free drive in the midst of a heavy downpour at the Interlagos circuit in São Paulo, Brazil. The win is Hamilton's first in 10 attempts in Brazil and the perfect time for him to achieve that feat to keep himself in the hunt for the Drivers' Championship.

Hamilton cut Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg's lead at the top of the standings down to 12 points after a flawless performance in conditions that were far too treacherous for racing and saw a couple of drivers escape unhurt from what could have been potentially serious accidents and witnessed two stoppages and a large chunk of time spent behind the safety car.

Rizwan Khan took the honours in the Superbikes category.

Jayaram, who last raced actively in 1995 and returned for one-off events in 2010, clocked a bewildering 11.055 seconds for the 400 metres dash.

 Reigning World Champion Lewis Hamilton continued to keep the pressure on teammate Nico Rosberg in the race for the Drivers' Championship by taking his 11th Pole Position of the season and the 60th of his career at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil.

Only fractions of a second separate the two Silver Arrows heading into tomorrow's Brazilian Grand Prix with Rosberg completing a 13th front row lock out of the season for the Mercedes team setting a time of 1:10.838 narrowly behind Hamilton's 1:10.736. The Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen was surprisingly the third quickest car on the track, setting a time of 1:11.404, more than half-a-second behind the Mercedes duo, who were simply in a class of their own.

I’m still relatively new to Formula One, but spending half a season at Manor Racing has given me some valuable experience and I feel ready for this new opportunity with Sahara Force India. The next few months will be very busy as I do all I can to prepare for the challenge ahead of me.
