Cyber Monday Jaguars Jerseys . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. 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 llooked scary on the teams data.ddddddddddddWith 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.
