Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz believes Mercedes' ability to nurse their tyres is a massive reason why the Maranello-based team are struggling to rein in the German team in the Formula 1 constructors' standings.
The Spaniard shared his displeasure with the, in his opinion, "boring" Mexican Grand Prix which featured five DNFs and a red flag.
Despite starting P2, Sainz failed to maintain a podium place, spending the majority of the race behind team-mate Charles Leclerc before finishing P4.
While his pace was good enough for a solid finish, Leclerc seemed to have the better of him despite having front wing damage for the first 35 laps – leaving Sainz with room for improvement next time out in Sao Paulo.
