2021 Mexico City Grand Prix

Starts to races don’t always live up to the hype, especially when you have title rivals heading towards Turn 1 with a race up for grabs, but Mexico didn’t disappoint.

It’s no exaggeration to say the Mercedes front row lockout on Saturday was a massive surprise, and Sunday’s grand prix showed the team’s true pace against Red Bull . Lewis Hamilton got the slightly better start compared to team-mate Valtteri Bottas but in some ways that was perfect, as Hamilton held the inside line, Bottas the outside and the pair were side-by-side, blocking most of the road.

But they didn’t block all of it, and that was all the invitation Max Verstappen needed.
