Verstappen goes from fast to furious to victor in Mexico

But the Australian blitzed his final lap, breaking the track record with a time of 1 minute 14.759 seconds to edge Verstappen by just 0.026 seconds.

"It's incredible. He can really try to become statistically the best of all-time, which is unreal, but it is a possibility, and I'm sure he's going to be motivated by that". "We hadn't had the cleanest run through practice, and I just knew putting the lap together would be crucial, as always". In my mind it is just another day of fighting and I have more races to win, it is not over.

Following his second win of the season at the Mexican Grand Prix, Max Verstappen has put his impressive form in the second half of the season down to following some advice from his father - Jos - used to give him during his karting days as a youngster.

Verstappen cut a markedly less enthusiastic figure after the session.

"I'm delighted the Team secured victory today, but it's bittersweet to have lost Daniel when we looked set for a 1-2", Horned posted on Instagram.

"We tried to make the best of it".

The Mercedes driver will line up third, behind the two Red Bulls of pole-sitter Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen and with Ferrari title rival Sebastian Vettel alongside on the second row.

The Briton hailed his team for turning around his auto after a deeply uncompetitive showing during Friday practice.

"I didn't sleep very well last night", said Verstappen. "We've quarantined it all and will get it all back to the United Kingdom to understand it, but that is what is looking like the culprit".

"I held a lot in, I've got to save some energy for tomorrow".

From there, Hamilton made sure he got his auto over the line, and was promoted one place after Ricciardo's engine blew up with 10 laps remaining.

Hamilton's fifth championship arguably ranks among his best.

Valtteri Bottas was fifth for Mercedes ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

Vettel starts right behind him again Sunday and must win if he has any hope of extending the championship to the next race in Brazil. "We just didn't have the pace to keep up with Mercedes for a couple of races". Both drivers were reprimanded for risky racing moves and team tensions were high.

Behind the frontrunners, there was disappointment for the home crowd when Mexican Sergio Perez was forced to retire in his Force India, while the retiring Fernando Alonso was out on the first lap after debris hit his McLaren.

New Zealand's Brendon Hartley finished 14th in his Toro Rosso.

He nearly self-destructed on Lap 47, running too wide at the first turn and ruining his tyres as well as conceding P3 to Ricciardo. I really do aspire to be like him as a strong black man and as a father and as a human being, doing what he did in the hard times and with the little that he had, I think that's testament to where we are.
