Mexican Grand Prix Race 2021
Qualifying was not a great experience for Max. He finished third, which of course didn't quite meet his expectations (1:16.225). His teammate Pérez and Tsunoda (AlphaTauri) were off track, so Verstappen had to slow down. To say that he was upset is nothing to say, but the pilot tries to keep an optimistic attitude. Also note that Pérez is in the top four and his best time is 1:16,342.
«It seemed like through qualifying the balance went away a little bit. But actually the last lap was a good lap, and I don't know what happened in front of me, but there were two guys going off. I thought there was gonna be a yellow flag, so I backed out, and then, of course, the lap was destroyed. Even with that, and not having great balance, I think we could have still gone for that pole. The result is not amazing, but I think it's still better to start third than second.»
The first and second-best results were shown by the pilots from the Mercedes team. Bottas drove his best lap in 1 minute 15.875 seconds, the best time in qualifying. Valtteri won the pole for the 19th time in the Mexican capital, noting that he led his best lap in the final stage of qualifying. Hamilton (his teammate), on the other hand, posted the second-best lap in 1 minute 16.020 seconds.
«It was an awesome lap, especially my lap first lap in Q3. I couldn’t quite match the final sector on the last one, but I honestly think that first run in Q3 was one of my best laps. And it’s a good feeling!»
It's impossible not to mention Nikita (Haas)'s performance in qualifying. He wasn’t the last, but he still dropped out of the top five. His best time was 1:19,303. Of course, the potential of this rider is great, he just needs to unlock it. His teammate Schumacher is a little bit better with 1:18,858.
Expert Betting Tips
As the free practices and qualifications have shown, we can say that there are four pilots who can fight for the Mexican Grand Prix: Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and Sergio Pérez. According to the experts, the track in Mexico City is more suitable for cars with a Honda engine than with a Mercedes engine, but it was the latter that turned out better in the qualification. We do not risk betting on Verstappen, as he complained about the balance after qualifying. We believe that Bottas will cross the finish line first. He showed himself very well both in free practice and in qualifying. To be on the safe side, we recommend betting on Valtteri to be at least in the top three.
- Bottas to finish in top-3 for 1.53;
- Bottas to finish in top-3 for 1.39;
- Bottas to win for 5.55.
