Mexican GP: Sebastian Vettel top as Lewis Hamilton only fifth

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel set the pace as Mercedes struggled in second practice at the Mexican Grand Prix.
Vettel was 0.614 seconds quicker than the fastest Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas, with Hamilton a further 0.349secs adrift.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was second, 0.115secs behind Vettel, with Vettel’s team-mate of Charles Leclerc third.
Mercedes’ pace suggested Hamilton will struggle to tie up the title on Sunday – he needs 14 points more than Bottas.
But Mercedes looked much stronger on race pace, Hamilton quicker than Vettel on average over his race-simulation run on mediums tyres by about 0.15secs.
