Team principal Toto Wolff insist Mercedes still have work to do in order to secure the constructors’ championship in Brazil. Lewis Hamilton has already been crowned F1 champion for a fifth time but the battle to make it a fifth drivers’ and constructors’ championship double in as many years is ongoing.

Mercedes are 55 points clear of nearest rival Ferrari and will claim the spoils once again as long at the Italian marque does not outscore them by more than 12 points at Interlagos on Sunday.
The Brackley-based team have struggled during the past two races, with Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen winning in the USA and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen taking the chequered flag in Mexico.
Wolff is therefore taking nothing for granted and is determined to get the job done in South America. “We have a battle on our hands and we have lost ground to Ferrari in the past two races,” he said.
“Our target for this season was to win both championships, not one title or the other, so our mindset is one of unfinished business as we head to Sao Paulo.”
