Last two races Korea and Japan, Mercedes set only 20 points, but their nearest rival Lotus earned 50 points and trailing 23 points in fourth.

“The last three races have shown us that we have a real fight on our hands to secure second place in the Constructors’ Championship – but also that we have the performance to achieve our goal if we consistently deliver the full potential of the car,” Wolff said.

“We quickly put the disappointing weekend in Japan behind us and are now fully focused on the final four races of the season,” he continued.

“The engineering team has been working hard to extract every last bit of performance and Nico and Lewis are both hungry to achieve strong finishes.

“We have no reason to fear any of the upcoming circuits, as we have been strong on all types of track so far this season.

“That should once again be the case this weekend in India, on a circuit that includes one of the most demanding corners of the year at turn 10. We will aim to do our usual, professional job, maximise the performance of the car and our target for both drivers will be a podium finish.”

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn said:- “There has been a great deal of analysis and hard work taking place at Brackley and Brixworth since we returned from Japan and I am pleased with the continued work ethic of the team and the determination to achieve our goal of second place in the championship,” Brawn stated.

“Both Nico and Lewis have been in the factory this week to assist with our preparations for the next two races and we are all looking forward to the challenge of securing strong finishes for both drivers.”
