Well, here we are again off to Mexico. This venue is at the highest altitude of all races and home of some of the most passionate fans in the F1 world.
This weekend I am hoping that the Red Bulls will again come to the fore. With Mercedes seeming to have seen off the Ferrari challenge for yet another year, it is the Red Bull's turn to make things difficult for the silver arrows.
The drivers championship is a foregone conclusion that Lewis only has to finish in the points to wrap up his next world drivers championship.
It should still be the same 6 drivers in the same top 3 teams to fill the top 6 positions.
It is in the next 4 points paying positions that will be battled for by the remaining 7 teams with 6 having a real chance.

Max Verstappen has been handed a 3 place grid penalty for failing to acknowledge the yellow flags by slowing through the incident sector.
Ironic in that he already had pole with his first run but he did improve his time with the second run of Q3.
P1. Charles Leclerc
P2. Sebastian Vettel
P3. Lewis Hamilton
P4. Max Verstappen
