Mexico Grand Prix: How to watch F1 live on TV and online

Red Bull have sowed up both the drivers and constructors titles for the first time in nearly 10 years as the racing action moves to Mexico City.

At the US Grand Prix, Max Verstappen managed to overtake Lewis Hamilton to win the race but could we see a bigger shake-up at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez this weekend? The altitude will have a different effect on the cars’ aerodynamic efficiency, and engine will perform different at the higher altitude as well. Could Mercedes and indeed Lewis Hamilton be in the mix for their first race win of the season.

While Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes will like be contesting for the win, the midfield battle between Alpine and McLaren is raging on, with Alpine edging ahead in the standings. Elsewhere there are only a few points between Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin, with Alpha Tauri and Haas still competing over 8th spot. It’s still all to play for, especially with the constructors handing out cash prizes for the final standing.

All eyes will be on Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez too, as he bids to win the Mexican Grand Prix for the first time. He’s not had much luck in recent runnings of this event, but with the two titles in the bag, Red Bull may give him the preference this weekend.
