2018 Mexico Grand Prix – Live

So we’ve got a RedBull on pole today in Mexico. but it’s not the driver that everyone expected it to be. After topping the timesheets in all 3 practice sessions and Q2 as well Max Verstappen was expected to take the accolade as the youngest ever F1 pole sitter in history, right up until Daniel Ricciardo put in an amazing lap right at the end of the 3rd qualifying session to snatch pole, but lock out the front row for the team. Of course the other big story of the weekend is the chance for Lewis Hamilton to clinch the Word Driver’s Championship at the same circuit where he took the title last year. All the Mercedes driver needs is a 7th place or better and he’ll match the great Juan Manuel Fangio’s 5 championships from the 1950s. There’s still a lot to play for today for further down the order as well so we should get a decent scrap in the midfield too as Haas & Renault continue their battle for 4th while Force India try and climb back up the Constructor’s Championship standings to get ahead of the ailing McLaren team currently occupying 6th place. Paul, Chris & Dan will be here to take you through everything from the Driver’s Parade to Parc Ferme…
