F1: Mercedes has made progress in understanding Mexico GP tyre struggles

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says his team has made progress with understanding the reasons behind its tyre degradation problems in Mexico.
Lewis Hamilton wrapped up his fifth world championship despite a lowly fourth-place finish, while teammate Valtteri Bottas ended up being lapped by race-winner Max Verstappen in fifth as Mercedes struggled for performance after encountering excessive tyre wear problems compared to its rivals in Mexico City.
It followed similar issues during the United States Grand Prix at Austin and prompted suggestions Mercedes had suffered as a result of electing not to run its controversial wheel rim design in both races – something the team later denied.
