Lewis Hamilton "relaxed" about Nico Rosberg taking pole in Mexico

World champion Lewis Hamilton insists that he is "relaxed" after Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg claimed pole at the Mexican Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that he is not concerned about starting behind Nico Rosberg in the Mexican Grand Prix.

Rosberg qualified 0.014 seconds quicker than the world champion, who made mistakes on both of his Q3 laps, to claim pole position for the fourth successive race.

Hamilton managed to overtake his Mercedes teammate in each of the last three races, and the Brit is confident of more success on Sunday.

"We've got big difference in balances set-up wise so it will be interesting to see how much of a difference it happens to make," he told Sky Sports News

"I'm fairly relaxed about it. My races have been pretty good for a while so I'm looking forward to a race - it actually means you have more of a race when you start second."

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel completed the top three in qualifying.
