Lewis Hamilton Fastest on Fuji Free Practice SessionWorld championship leader Lewis Hamilton is one of 3 drivers under investigation by the race stewards at the Brazilian Grand Prix for breaching the wet weather tire rules. McLaren’s Hamilton, Honda’s Jenson Button, and Super Aguri’s Takuma Sato were deemed to have used two sets of wet weather tires during the first free practice session at Interlagos, in breach of the Sporting Regulations.

Article 25.3 of the Formula One Sporting Regulations states: “No driver may use more than one set of wet and one set of extreme weather tyres during P1 and P2.

The matter was brought to the race stewards’ attention by FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer, and it is not clear at this stage whether or not the drivers involved will face any sanction. The stewards will likely look into the matter after the conclusion of today’s 2nd free practice session.
