Wolff "cautiously optimistic" for Mexico despite "unpredictable" W13

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has expressed 'cautious optimism' ahead of the Mexico City Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton came within six laps of scoring his and Mercedes' first win of the year at the Circuit of the Americas last weekend, before being relegated a step on the podium by Max Verstappen.

Although the consistent pace of both Hamilton and George Russell across the weekend is certainly a cause for raised expectations, Wolff has urged caution in building hopes too quickly.

"Race day in Austin was quite a rollercoaster of emotions," said Wolff.

"While we didn't quite have the pace to win, it was great to be in the mix at the front and leading the race. "The upgrades we brought to Texas delivered a step forward and we were closer to the front than we have been recently. "Lewis drove an outstanding race to finish P2 and George scored a good haul of points despite his damaged car. "We need to keep this momentum going. We're cautiously optimistic heading to Mexico but the W13 can be unpredictable from track to track, so we'll have to wait and see."

The Mexico City race at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez is a visual spectacle with the Foro Sol baseball stadium without fail, packed with fans.

"It's always good to be back in Mexico," added Wolff.

"The fans are fantastic and the atmosphere is spectacular every time we visit. They know how to put on a brilliant show so we're looking forward to being back in Mexico City."
