Nico Rosberg was satisfied with finishing the Mexican Grand Prix in second place, despite it meaning his championship lead took another hit.
Rosberg now has a 19 point lead with two races remaining, meaning that a win is all he needs to secure the championship, no matter what happens to team mate Lewis Hamilton.
Despite missing out on the chance to take back-to-back wins in Mexico, Rosberg was happy to finish on the podium.
"It has been a good day," said Rosberg. "Lewis has been too fast this weekend so I just have to accept second place."
"I had some massive battles out there," he added. "At the start I got shunted and then with Max later on and everything so it is okay to be second."
