MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Lewis Hamilton was nearly dealt a critical blow to his title chances on the opening lap of the Mexican Grand Prix when his Mercedes team considered pitting him from the lead.Hamilton locked his front right tyre into the first corner due to a glazed brake disc, resulting in him taking to the run off and cutting Turn 2 completely. He escaped a penalty from the stewards but the lock-up severely damaged his right front tyre with a flat spot.Mercedes were ready to pit Hamilton at the end of the first lap, but a safety car period for a collision between Pascal Wherlein and Marcus Ericsson gave the pit wall enough time to revaluate the situation.It was huge, Hamilton said. A massive flat spot and I honestly thought that I was going to have to come in. When I came out of the chicane I honestly thought I was coming in that lap and that was my race pretty much done. But they told me to stay out, the safety car came out and they felt that we could live with the vibration and it wouldnt damage the suspension. It was getting worse and worse even though I wasnt locking up any more. But I had to take a lot of precautions while trying to nurse the car to the 17th lap.Team boss Toto Wolff said the vibrations caused by the misshaped tyre looked scary on the teams data.With all the bad luck Lewis has had throughout the season, he got some of that back today, some of the good luck back, because he badly flat-spotted the tyre. The vibration matrix was scary from the beginning. We had quite a conversation on the radio about whether we should pit him for safety reasons.In any other race we would have pitted him and lost the race. We kept him out there in order to not throw away the championship for him. Every single lap, every single straight, we monitored the vibrations. Our team did a fantastic job in keeping that under control and then we pitted him a bit earlier because the vibration matrix was going sky high and a suspension failure could have easily happened.Hamilton made it to lap 17 with the flat spot before changing tyres, which Wolff said was crucial to staying on a winning strategy.That was the earliest we could have pitted him. Everything else would have destroyed the race. But honestly it was not a comfortable situation we found ourselves in there to make that call, weighing up the championship versus a failure of the suspension. Swell återförsäljare .

Derbyshire 177 and 413 for 6 (Hughes 122, Madsen 90, Godleman 66*) lead Glamorgan 518 by 72 runsScorecard Despite a century from Chesney Hughes, the tenth of his career and his third against Glamorgan, and 90 from Wayne Madsen as third-wicket pair added 180, Glamorgan remain on course to win their first Championship win of the season at Colwyn Bay.At the close of the third days play, Derbyshire were 413 for 6, a lead of 72 on a pitch which is giving little assistance to the bowlers.With Hughes and Madsen both out, much will depend on the Derbyshire middle and late order batsmen if they are to set Glamorgan a challenging target. Their captain Billy Godleman was 66 not out.After Hamish Rutherford had edged Graham Wagg to the wicketkeeper after scoring 45, Glamorgan had to wait another 46 overs for further success, as the third-wicket pair consolidated throughout a sweltering afternoon.Hughes played and missed many times - especially against the accurate Michael Hogan - but in between played some handsome strokes on both sides of the wicket.He reached his century by sweeping Owen Morgans left-arm spin for six, before he was out, edging Wagg to Wallace.ddddddddddddMadsen survived a difficult chance down the leg side to Wallace on 70, and a more straightforward chance six runs later to Aneurin Donald at slip, and he appeared destined for three figures before he became Wallaces fourth victim, when he edged Andrew Salters arm ball to the wicketkeeper.Hogan was eventually rewarded when he pinned Neil Broom in front and at that stage Derbyshire were nineteen runs behind. Godleman, batting at No. 5 after being taken ill the previous day, and Shiv Thakor then cleared the arrears and settled into an useful partnership with Godleman reaching fifty from 90 balls .They put on 63 before Thakor shuffled in front of his stumps and was leg before to David Lloyd for 29.Both teams applied themselves well on sweltering day; Derbyshire for their application and determination to improve on their dismal first innings performance, and Glamorgans bowlers who stuck to their task and by the end of the day had put their side in sight of a first win.
