Red Bull-Honda went conservative for the Brazilian GP Sprint race, choosing Pirelli medium tyres for the 24-lap qualifying race; Mercedes split their options, fitting soft tyres on the car of Valtteri Bottas and mediums to the car at the back of the grid - that of Lewis Hamilton.

Peter Windsor analyses the day's action - and the busy life and times of the FIA Stewards at Interlagos.
