Mexico GP: race preview
After a drive reminiscent of his finest work netted him a second place last weekend, Lewis Hamilton, alongside Charles Leclerc, was disqualified, allowing Red Bull to open up an even larger margin in the constructors' championship.
For both drivers, the plank was the cause for concern, with excessive wear noted. This indicates a ride height lower than the prescribed limit, and whether it was due to the limited set-up time afforded by the Sprint format or simple cheating, it's a blow for both Mercedes and Ferrari.
As we head to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez for the Mexico Grand Prix, the familiar format returns, and all eyes will be on Sergio Perez. The most successful Mexcian driver in history has a fanatical following in his home country – but whether Checo can use this to his advantage is a different story.
Mediocre performances in the last handful of races have cast doubt on his future at Red Bull, and the fact Max Verstappen is as dominant as we've seen any driver be in the same car only throws fuel on the fire.
Rising star Oscar Piastri will be eager to actually cross the finish line this weekend after having to retire after colliding with Esteban Ocon during the first lap. Teammate Lando Norris, however, is on a streak of very good form, and took home second place – when adjusted for Hamilton;s DQ, of course.
A surprise front-row lock-out for Ferrari means that Verstappen will again have to wade through traffic before almost inevitably taking the win. However, with teammate Perez starting in fifth, current form suggests that he might have a little trouble making it to a home podium.
Despite Max having the championship sewn up, with just four races to go this season there's still a ton of close battles further down the table – not least for second place. With 39 points separating Hamilton and Perez, the seven-time champion still has a chance to snag silver if Checo's poor form continues.
With fine weather in Mexico City, we're in for a thrilling race. Read on for how to watch Mexico Grand Prix live streams from start to finish from anywhere in the world, including all ways to watch an F1 live stream for FREE.
