Words: Stuart CodlingMidday in Mexico City and the baking-hot sun is radiating with squint-making ferocity - and yet some folk in the Formula 1 paddock, including our interviewee, are still wearing garb to ward off the morning chill. The proliferation of gilets - more, even, than you'd expect to see at the average Harlequins rugby match - makes for a peculiar juxtaposition with what ...

Even before I arrived at the Mexican Grand Prix, I knew it was not going to be an ideal weekend because we had decided to take some engine penalties for tactical reasons.Although we had only just changed engines in Austin, it was always the plan to get another power unit fitted in Mexico because we thought our competitiveness wouldn't be so good there – and it was important to prepare ...

It's almost familiar but not completely so: the big LED sign. The intimidating gatehouse. The narrow, curving lane next to a lake filled with expensive carp. You daren't study the water for fear of running out of road in front of them all. Then there's the curved-edge structure by Foster and Partners. The glass. The pod lifts. The inward-opening doors. The Boulevard. Bruce's Austin ...

The United States Grand Prix may not have delivered any points for McLaren Honda, but I had many reasons to leave Austin very happy with the weekend.First about my own race performance, after a pretty decent charge from the back of the grid to finish 12th.
