MERCEDES say they are expecting a difficult time at this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton seeks to tie up the drivers’ title.
Hamilton will secure a sixth world championship if he out-scores team-mate Valtteri Bottas by at least 14 points.
But that task will be made harder by the fact Mercedes do not expect the Mexico City track to suit their car. “
The four remaining races are not going to be easy and we expect Mexico to be the most difficult,” said Toto Wolff.
The Mercedes team boss added: “The high altitude of the track brings some fairly unusual challenges as the low air density affects the downforce of the car, the cooling and the engine performance.” – BBC
