Not impossible to win - Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton believes it will be "tough to beat the Red Bulls... but not impossible" following Friday practice for the inaugural race in Austin.

Hamilton was more than a second adrift of Sebastian Vettel's pace in both Friday practice sessions but says he still enjoyed the challenges of the Texas track, with team-mate Jenson Button adding the circuit is "fun to drive".

The purpose-built Circuit of the Americas has been designed to replicate some of Formula 1's greatest corners, including the Becketts complex at Silverstone, Suzuka's Esses and a first turn reminiscent of Austria's Osterreichring.
