"I've been struggling with the vehicle today, so we have to review and try to understand where we have gone wrong with the balance". We have a very quick auto and we saved some tyres.

Title leader Lewis Hamilton was just sixth fastest, behind the Ferrari and Red Bulls as well as McLaren's Fernando Alonso, and finished the day over one second behind championship rival Sebastian Vettel in the charts.

Sharing his views was Bottas, who is now in third position with 212 points, but looking motivated to bring home glory as well as to chase Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari who is in second place.

Worryingly for Hamilton, the vehicle was struggling on both short runs with low fuel and longer runs with high fuel.

"In Singapore, Sebastian was first and I was fourth in qualifying so if you compare it with Mercedes, we were better", he said. "We just need to try to do always a flawless job".

Red Bull Racing duo Max Verstappen (1:30.541s) and Daniel Ricciardo (1:30.595s) fill up the second row. He made a sloppy error of judgment heading into Turn 1, taking out his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen and Verstappen — both of whom could realistically have denied Hamilton a podium finish and crucial points. "We did end up with completely different cars to Lewis and at the end it seemed to be working for him and not so well for me", said the Finn. "It was a very hard session for us".

Ratings Actually Improved During NFL's Tumultuous Week 3
The president suggests that the national anthem protests pioneered by Colin Kaepernick has played a role in declining ratings. The controversy could be bad news for television networks, if vast numbers of viewers decide to tune out all at once.

Concurring Team boss Toto Wolff added: "A blistering lap, he put it all together, but we are left with some confusion because our vehicle wasn't good". I also had a bit of an off in FP2 that cost us some time, we lost a few laps because of that.

"We did try some new aero parts today, so one answer may be that one of those parts didn't work as expected", he said. That's what I've always enjoyed since my dad would say my first go-kart was fifth-hand, or something, and he would say it was like a four-poster bed. "It looked like both Mercedes were struggling in morning and afternoon so I'm pretty sure they will be fine tomorrow".

Stevenage-born Hamilton added: "I had a great group of people who were in front of my garage today all day long, sending really positive energy".

"I really want to improve and redeem myself because past year we did not achieve a great result from my side here", he told reporters in a press conference at the Galeri Petronas, here, Tuesday.

"On paper the Ferrari is the fastest auto, followed by the Red Bull and then us".

"When you get that close it's disappointing", he explained. Race coverage starts at 6.30am on Sunday - with lights out at 8am.
