Lewis Hamilton set a new track record at Interlagos after topping Friday's first practice session ahead of this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix.

Despite winning the world championship in Mexico last time out, the Brit is hoping to bounce back from his worst race of the season where he finished ninth at the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit.

Competing for the first time as a four-time world champion, Hamilton smashed the 13-year track record held by Juan Pablo Montoya with a 1:09.202 as he went fastest in FP1 ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas by a tenth of a second and Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.
