A furious Fernando Alonso repeatedly demanded race director Charlie Whiting give Romain Grosjean a penalty during the Mexican Grand Prix.
Here are the team radio highlights from the race.
Lewis Hamilton found his seat was a bit hot for comfort but soon has something else to worry about following his first-lap tangle with Sebastian Vettel. Meanwhile Alonso was one of only two drivers to start the race on the super-soft tyres.
Hamilton: “My seat is roasting. Make sure you cool it next time. It’s so hot.”
To Alonso: “Fernando, tyre info: The only other prime starter is Grosjean. The rest options.”
Hamilton: “Flat tyre.”
“Copy copy Lewis box box.”
Daniel Ricciardo started well but his race didn’t last much longer.
To Ricciardo: “OK Daniel nice job you’re now P8.”
“We’re going to box this lap.”
Massa: “I don’t believe it. Really?”
“Yep box now.”
Verstappen: “Simply, simply lovely.”
“Ah simply mate.”
Ricciardo: “Issue I think with the turbo.”
“Fail 1 fail.”
Ricciardo: “I think it’s drained all the battery.”
“Yep. We’re looking at it mate, keep pushing. OK Daniel box this lap. Switch off. Sorry about that mate, we’ll have a look at it.”
Ricciardo: “OK I’m jumping out.”
“Yes mate. You did a very good job mate, it was a good first few laps, sorry about that.”
Hamilton: “Did he hit me deliberately?”
“Not sure, Lewis.”
Alonso was desperate to get ahead of the only other driver on the same strategy as him.
Alonso: “OK Grosjean cut turn 14, he needs to give the position back place.”
Alonso: “Yeah we need the position immediately because he changed the race. Very clear.”
“Understood, Fernando, we’re working on it.”
Alonso: “Yes, please, the position. Please. Please. Race director, look at the race please.”
“We have reported him to the race director. We will get back to you. Plan A looking good.”
Alonso. “Please. Please is very clear. I am losing the race here.”
“Fernando mate we’re still trying. Concentrate.”

Vettel clashed with Felipe Massa.
Vettel: “Seriously, are we developing auto scooter here? It’s fun to push the other guy off the track?”
To Gasly: “OK try to stay close to him and exploit his overtake on Grosjean.”
“OK Stoffel we’d like to let positions, let Fernando have a go.”
Alonso: “Maybe I can get the Sauber?”
“OK Fernando we’ll swap positions.”
Hamilton: “Just to get past these guys is difficult.”
Hartley: “Bit slow out of five.”
“Copy that Brendon we are looking.”
Nico Hulkenberg and Brendon Hartley joined the growing list of Renault-powered retirements.
Hulkenberg: “Loss of power,”
“Understand Nico we are de-rating. That’s why we need B51 on.”
“PU9 position five urgent.”
Verstappen: “I think I did it wrong.”
“You’ve not activated anything Max. It’s not urgent.”
To Hulkenberg: “Stop the car Nico. The car is not safe. You need to get out by climbing onto the front and jumping off.”
Hamilton: “Feels like the tyre isn’t going to last.”
“That’s not a concern for us Lewis, we’ve got alternative plans.”
Hartley: “Losing power.”
“All OK, all OK.”
Hartley: “Losing more power,”
“Stop the car in the same place.”
Hamilton and Vettel continued to climb through the field but Vettel realised he had too much ground to make up.
Hamilton: “How far behind am I?”
“29 seconds to Vettel. Vettel on ultra-soft.”
Hamilton: “How am I further away?”
To Hamilton: “Vettel currently P7. His best-case scenario is P4. That’s not enough for him.”
To Vettel: “Very good pace, keep pushing like this, hang in there.”
Ocon: “Are they going to catch me before the end?”
“Yes, they will.”
To Ericsson: “OK Marcus we have blue flag for Raikkonen. We need to be careful because Gasly is right behind Raikkonen.”
“Kimi 23s in front. Kimi lap time 23.0.”
Vettel: “How many seconds, you say?”
Vettel: “Oh mamma mia. It’s a little bit too much”
Sainz: “The car is pulling to the right on the straights. I don’t know if we are losing aero parts or something?”
Verstappen: “Was that the fastest lap?”
Alonso: “What do you think he went off on the track overtaking or he was OK?”
“It was good racing, fair racing.”
To Magnussen: “Hamilton is now P9, four seconds behind, come on boy.”
Max Verstappen won but ninth place clinched the championship for Hamilton.
“Get in there Lewis! Champion of the world!”
“Lewis this is Toto. Not the race you wanted but who cares? Four time-world champion.”
“Niki, Lewis. Thank, thankyou, thankyou. Four time thankyou.”
“Well done mate. Vettel’s going to have to work harder than that if he wants the championship off you.”
Hamilton: “I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone in this team. What you’ve done in the last couple of years is remarkable and I’m just so grateful for all your hard work this year. God bless you.”
“Thank you Lewis mate. Great to have you in the team.”
Hamilton: “Never give up.”
“Hey Lewis it’s Neymar. I’m happy for you bro for the championship. Winning!”
