Brendon Hartley at the Brazilian Grand Prix”

While team-mate Brendon Hartley retired just over halfway through the race - continuing Toro Rosso's recent run of reliability woes - Gasly crossed the line in 12th, a lap down on race victor Sebastian Vettel.

Hartley, who looks set to start eighteenth on the grid thanks to his third grid penalty in as many Grand Prix says that his pre-weekend aim of scoring his first points in Formula 1 is going to be tough, but he will be pushing to move forward on Sunday.

"I think it was just more as you get towards the end of the season, people are getting exhausted, emotions run high, Toro Rosso were getting a bit exhausted of the problems they were having". He had taken his stop earlier and was battling for a spot as high as 12th on strategy.

The Toro Rosso team will switch to Honda power next season.

Valtteri Bottas, saw his hopes of overhauling Vettel for the runner-up position in the championship effectively disappear when he finished second.

The season-ending race in Abu Dhabi takes place in a fortnight. Bottas held on for second to keep his slim chance of second in the standings alive.

Hamilton clinched the title in Mexico two weeks ago, started from the pit lane after changes to his auto following a crash in qualifying then be began a thrilling charge through the field.

But Gasly's vehicle also hit trouble within sight of the flag.

Dutchman Max Verstappen came home fifth ahead of his Red Bull team-mate Australian Daniel Ricciardo and retirement-bound local hero Felipe Massa, a rousing seventh for Williams in his final home city race.
