Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley reckons that with a little bit more luck, he can finish inside the top ten before the season ends. This weekend, the Kiwi will partake in his third Formula 1 Grand Prix, having already driven in the US and Mexico.

However, his race in Mexico City didn't go to plan as an engine failure stopped his progress on lap 17. Having wrapped up the World Endurance Championship title since Mexico, Hartley arrives in Brazil in high spirits, hopeful of a strong result.

"I’m very happy to be heading to Brazil with Toro Rosso," the 27-year-old admitted. "With the help of the team I made big progress in Mexico and I’m confident that, with a little bit more luck than last time out, we can fight for points.

"I’m starting to feel at home in the F1 paddock and Sao Paulo is a track I enjoyed and know quite well from when I raced there back in 2014 for the final round of the FIA WEC Championship. So, all in all, I definitely look forward to my third race weekend in Formula 1 and what will be my fifth race weekend in a row!"
