Analysis: How Hamilton went from last to fourth in Brazil

Lewis Hamilton didn't win the Brazilian Grand Prix, but with a stirring drive from the back of the grid to fourth place, he made it perfectly clear that had he started anywhere near the front he would have won, and won comfortably.

The Brazilian GP must have been a race of mixed emotions for Sebastian Vettel and Scuderia Ferrari.

On the one hand they beat pole man Valtteri Bottas in a straight fight, ending Vettel's run of recent misfortune, and logging a morale-boosting late season win.
