Hamilton concedes Mercedes have no hope of beating Ferrari in Mexico straights

Lewis Hamilton believes that it's going to be very difficult to challenge Ferrari in the straights at Mexico this weekend. The Brit could seal the title this weekend but he knows just how tough a challenge it will be for his team.

The straight-line speed of the Ferrari is causing Hamilton some concern, although he does have another three races after Mexico in which to win the drivers' championship.

Hamilton is 64 points ahead of his teammate Valtteri Bottas going into the weekend and will be crowned champion if he wins and the Fin finishes off the podium,

"I think Mexico is generally our worst race of the year because of the way our car is set up and it's going to be a tough one for us," as quoted by Motorsport.

"The last few have been pretty shocking, even though we've won the title thereI'm hoping for a better weekend but I think it's going to be very hard to beat the Ferraris with those long straights."
