F1 Mexican Grand Prix – Start time, how to watch, & more SEO article

Formula 1

Mercedes stunned Red Bull with a qualifying turnaround to secure a front row lockout, with Bottas sealing his 19th career pole position in F1 ahead of team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Red Bull struggled with rear wing issues, with the team having to patch cracks with tape ahead of qualifying,  before both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez saw their final Q3 laps wrecked when Yuki Tsunoda went off track ahead of them – leading to Red Bull team boss Christian Horner stating they “got Tsunoda’d”. 

The result of this left Verstappen down in third place with team-mate Perez in fourth place, despite looking like the dominant team in practice in Mexico City.

AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly won the ‘best of the rest’ battle again with fifth place in qualifying, as Carlos Sainz Jr claimed sixth place for Ferrari just 0.002s faster than McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo.

Charles Leclerc had to settle for eighth place for Ferrari with AlphaTauri’s Tsunoda and McLaren’s Lando Norris completing the Q3 contenders, but both will start the Mexican GP from the back of the grid due to power unit change penalties.

Esteban Ocon (Alpine) and Lance Stroll (Aston Martin) will also start from the back of the grid due to power unit changes, the latter also suffering a heavy crash in Q1, while George Russell takes a five-place grid drop for a gearbox change in his Williams.
