Mexican Grand Prix: preview

A Ferrari front-rwo lockout? Daniel Ricciardo in fourth? El Dia de los Muertos weekend is more than living up to the billing so far. Charles Leclerc is on pole for the Mexican Grand Prix, and with Carlos Sainz providing a cushion from Max Verstappen, hopes are high at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez today.

It's lights out for the Mexican Grand Prix at 8pm GMT.

The drivers' title may already be in Verstappen's pocket, but in terms of pure entertainment, the F1 season appears to have finally clicked into gear. All signs suggest that Mercedes, McLaren and Ferrari have finally cracked the performance deficit to Red Bull, which should make for a tantalising race.

It's a shame, then, that Lando Norris had a nightmare in Qualifying that leaves him stranded in the 19th slot on the grid, 12 places behind Oscar Piastri. Lewis Hamilton would have been disappointed to only be in sixth, though Ricciardo's shockingly great drive has overshadowed that.

The Aussie, who only returned to action a race ago, went one better than Sergio Perez, who's treated like a god at his home race. Checo had faded into irrelevance after a largely dismal run of results, though he seems to be in the mood this weekend, having run third-quickest in two of the practice sessions, before qualifying in fifth.
