I was not surprised at Bottas crash - Raikkonen

Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Raikkonen have been talking about the collision that saw Raikkonen's race end.

"I was never going to back off," said Bottas.

"I lost a wheel," added Raikkonen. "You can ask many different people and there will be different views. I was not very surprised. Our weekend was pretty poor and for our team it was very difficult."

Pub quiz question?

Nigel Mansell, 1992 Mexican Grand Prix winner, interviewed Nico Rosberg - the 2015 winner on the podium.

How may times has the winner of the previous edition of a race interviewed the latest winner? Got to be a question for future pub quizzes...


With his fourth win of the season, Nico Rosberg returns to second in the standings, 21 points ahead of Sebastian Vettel with two races to go.

'One of the most difficult races of my life'

Mexican Sergio Perez only had one pit stop while the rest of the drivers that finished had two, and he came eighth in his home grand prix.

"We were very unlucky with the safety car and it came out at the wrong time. We were on a one-stop strategy and were looking strong," Perez tells BBC Sport. "I was the only one on old tyres and it was a big challenge to make it to the end of the race.

"Sometimes you are lucky or unlucky and today we were very unlucky. This was one of the most difficult races of my life but I'm happy to get some points in my country.

"This is the biggest moment of my career and I'm so proud of what we have achieved. I'm sure Mexico is now one of the most popular races in the calendar."

Here's the chat with Numero Uno @LewisHamilton 'An incredible year of growth' @BBCSport

Here's the chat with Numero Uno @LewisHamilton 'An incredible year of growth' @BBCSport

Speaking of Lewis Hamilton, he sat down for a 10-minute chat with Suzi Perry this weekend.

In a wide-ranging interview, Hamilton admitted that he is feeling "pretty mellow" now but describes some of the anxieties he had during the US Grand Prix, whilst complimenting team-mate Nico Rosberg on how hard he has pushed him this season.

Watch the full interview here and you can also catch it on the Mexican GP highlights show on BBC One at 22:30 GMT.

Here's a bit more from Lewis Hamilton on his battle with Nico Rosberg: "It was fun. I was pushing so hard and I was giving it everything I had. I had more pace than him."

Hats off to Rosberg

I'm not proud of mistake - Vettel

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel had an eventful race as he was involved in a first corner collision with Daniel Ricciardo, recovered, but then crashed out of the race in lap 50.

"I had a bad start. - these things happen it is racing," Vettel tells BBC Sport. "The race was pretty much lost. I tried to come back, but two mistakes did not help.

"The last mistake was my mistake, so I'm not proud of it. We were very close to Mercedes in terms of pace, as close as we have been for a while. We were forcing it."

On the incident with Ricciardo, Vettel adds: "Turn one, start of the race. He was closing the door, but he was not next to me. But it was too late and I had a bad feeling into turn two and three. This kind of stuff you can't do on purpose, so I'm not blaming him. Obviously it is a pain when it hits you in turn one."

Ferrari stat

Sebastian Vettel's crash threatened to make things interesting in the closing stages but in the end a cool and calm drive by Nico Rosberg saw him home.

However, Lewis Hamilton was evidently irked when he was called to stop for a second pit. He resisted the call to box for one lap, before relenting. Just a couple of laps later the safety car came out. 

How he will have wished he'd stayed out for just a few more laps and pitted under the safety car.

Record out of reach for Hamilton

Missing out on victory in Mexico means there's a record Lewis Hamilton can no longer equal.

He needed to win all three remaining races to equal the most amount of wins in a season (13). The most he can get to now is 12.

Kimi Raikkonen, whose race ended after 21 laps, says: "Our weekend was pretty poor. We are still a strong team."

Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso all retiring. Three former world champions. Needless to say, the return of the Mexican Grand Prix was not a moment to remember for those three.

What a picture! Hands up who would love to be there right now?

"This is the best podium of the year," adds Nico Rosberg. "What a place to win!"

Nico Rosberg, speaker of a gazillion languages, butters up the crowd by finishing off the podium interviews with a bit of Spanish: "Que tal hoy Mexico!"

Third-placed Valtteri Bottas: "A big thanks to the team, we did a mega job. We were racing like a race-winning team."

Talking about the incident with Kimi Raikkonen, Bottas added: "There was nowhere for me to go, it is a shame it ended like that."

Second-placed Lewis Hamilton: "Nico drove a fantastic race. Just fantastic to be here in Mexico. This crowd is like being at a football game. The fans have been amazing. I've never seen anything like this."

Lewis Hamilton and Nigel Mansell

Race-winner Nico Rosberg says: "Amazing day, a great battle with Lewis, who drove really well. I'm really happy with the win, what a place to do it.

"An absolutely awesome crowd."

"Ole, ole, ole, Nico, Nico," sing the fans in the stadium section.

As Lewis Hamilton has just said, this crowd is like something from a football match.

Nigel Mansell, the winner of the last Mexican Grand Prix back in 1992, is the man to conduct the podium interviews. Let's see what they have to say...

Sombreros on, the drivers emerge onto the podium, Nico Rosberg taking a long-overdue leap onto the top step. That's his first win since Austria in June.

Bernie Austin: This was a brilliant weekend for Nico. Hopefully he do more of this next season.

Isaac Mares: Couldn't agree with DC more - great to see the aggression from Nico and he has to maintain that going forward.

No first, second or third place caps here, avoiding any concerns about cap-gate: the sequel. Instead, it is sombreros. Of course.

Marshal at the Mexican Grand Prix

In the excitement it looks like Nico Rosberg left his helmet in his car, leading to a bit of a wait in the weighing in room as someone goes to find it.

While they wait, Rosberg shakes Lewis Hamilton's hand after a good battle well fought.

David Coulthard

BBC F1 co-commentator

"Nico has carried over an aggressive stance from last week and that has inspired him. Every session he has been on the money.

"It is a thoroughly deserved victory, but Hamilton will have a few questions of his team about strategy."

A grandstand location for Parc ferme as the top three cruise into the stadium section and come to a stop in front of the cheering fans. Nico Rosberg climbs on top of his Mercedes and laps up the applause.

That win, Rosberg's fourth of the season, is a great response after the disappointment of losing out on the title to Lewis Hamilton last weekend.
