Lewis Hamilton says “it’s going to be a real challenge with that car” at the Mexican Grand Prix, and they will be “on a knife’s edge”.

After a tremendous performance at the United States Grand Prix, Mexican Grand Prix Qualifying did not go the way Mercedes wanted.

After qualifying in P6, Lewis Hamilton said he has been struggling with the car all weekend.

“I’ve been struggling all weekend with this car,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.

“The car’s been a bit of a nightmare to drive, it just doesn’t like this track. We made some good changes going into qualifying, I was much, much happier with the car.

“I wish we’d done in the morning but then Q1 and Q2 weren’t looking too bad, Q2 second lap was great.

“But the car is just really peaky. Sometimes it works, sometimes doesn’t, and I just wasn’t able to extract much more from it again.

“I think, in a perfect world, maybe I could have been fifth but that’s about it.”

As for the race, Lewis said:

“It’s going to be a real challenge with that car tomorrow. We’re overheating, brakes overheating, it’s going to be very hard for us to battle.

“I don’t know what kind of race we’re going to have but it’s going to be on a knife’s edge,” he concluded.
