Lewis Hamilton has called on his Mercedes squad to pull together in order to best Ferrari to second place in the Constructors' Championship.
Mercedes currently holds the upper hand on Ferrari but just 22 points separate the two teams with three races remaining this year.
Last season it was Mercedes who finished behind Ferrari in the standings as both teams have struggled to consistently battle front-runners Red Bull since the introduction of the ground effect technical regulations.
With fine margins separating the two squads, Hamilton is hopeful that Mercedes can see out the year in front of the Italian outfit.
"It’s a really fun, enjoyable battle we’re having," Hamilton told media including RacingNews365.
"These guys did a great job in qualifying at the last race [in Mexico] but fortunately, we were able to leapfrog them [in the race].
"But I think it's going be close in these last three races, it's going to just take all hands on deck to stop these guys."

"I expect the Red Bull to be very fast, it always seems to work pretty much everywhere except for Singapore," Hamilton said.
"We expect the Ferraris to be quick. I hope that our car works well here like it did in Austin.
"But you could just never predict, it could be bad, it could be good. So we're just trying to prepare the best way we can."
