Merc 'savour' second place

Merc 'savour' second place

Mercedes have described their second-place finish in the Constructors' Championship as a "huge achievement".

The Brackley squad picked up 12 points at the Brazilian GP - Nico Rosberg was fifth and team-mate Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line in ninth place - to beat Ferrari to second place by six points.

Finishing P2 in the standings means they will get extra prize money and, although they concede they were well beaten by Champions Red Bull, Mercedes were delighted with their achievement.

"What an incredible race to end an incredible season. P2 is a huge achievement for all of us at Brackley and Brixworth," they tweeted.

"We don't forget that this is only P2 and Red Bull beat us comprehensively. But we will savour this one. So much hard work has gone into it. From everybody here at the track, a huge thank you to all the guys back at the factories. Massive effort this year."
