"It sounds really simple and silly, but bad luck really is the best term I can use", Ricciardo said.
"I'm hoping this weekend we can get the auto into the right place and fight the guys, and the Red Bulls and Ferraris who have seemed to come back more into shooting range".
Hamilton, 33, is keen to add to his tally this weekend of just one victory at the Interlagos circuit and suggested he will not step aside for Bottas, despite the Finn giving up his victory for the Briton at September's Russian Grand Prix.
Hamilton was among the drivers who suffered most with tyre wear at the last race in Mexico, but said his performance in Brazil was not too far from where he wants it to be.
"It is not always the case you find all the solutions", Hamilton said, "so I am confident everyone has worked as hard as they can to rectify it and push forward but it might take this race and even the next race before we fully understand it".
"The seasons are getting longer, and the off-time is getting shorter, so from a competitor's point of view the turnaround is short". You start preparing for next year as soon as the season is so done, so getting your mind tuned is very hard'.
In the Mexican Grand Prix, both Ferrari drivers finished ahead of both Mercedes drivers, as Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen finished in second and third place to score 18 points and 15 points, respectively, while Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas finished in fourth and fifth to score 12 points and 10 points, respectively.

"Getting your mind turned".
Valtteri Bottas topped another incredibly tight practice session ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix as Mercedes and Ferrari opened up a gap to Red Bull. "That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time".
In 2015, Nico Rosberg won the last three races, before Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas claimed a win each previous year.
"It makes no difference..."
He added that it was more important for the team to succeed in the constructors' championship. That said, when you've won five world drivers' championships, you probably have carte blanche to dress as you like.
"His motivation was to win the fifth title and now, and for next year, it is a personal feeling about what he wants".
