Despite some struggles in qualifying, Lewis Hamilton finished the Mexican Grand Prix in P2, after a brilliant drive.

Afterwards, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said the team was pleased with how the car performed in the race.

“The smile on our face is because the car was strong,” the Austrian said.

“Once Lewis was in free air, we had so much margin in the medium. The lap times were good and fastest lap at the end.

“It’s been a few weekends now where we say we ‘could have’ but didn’t. I think we need to qualify better.

“Probably with the straight-line speed we wouldn’t have been so competitive against Max, but who knows, the pace is there.

“It was a brilliant, brilliant drive from Lewis. We have these oscillations in performance and we don’t really know sometimes if the tyres stick.

“Just a few degrees of track temperature and you are out of the window,” Wolff concluded.
