Mexico Grand Prix qualification
Bottas (Mercedes) showed the best results in the first free practice, 1 minute 18 seconds. He was followed by Hamilton who lost less than a second to his teammate (+0.076). Max Verstappen (+0.123) has also entered the top three. Unfortunately, Russian pilot Nikita Mazepin (Haas) showed the worst result in practice. His best time was 1:22,819, a second more than Mick Schumacher's.
Free practice 2 had the same top-3, but this time Max was not third but first. His best time was almost 2.5 seconds less (1:17.301). Bottas has also added a little bit. He was half a second ahead of his last result (1:17,725) and Hamilton is after him with 1:17,725 seconds. As for the performance of the Russian driver in the second session, he also improved by one second (1:21.581).
These two sessions let us risk naming a winner of the Mexican Grand Prix qualifying, but one must not be too quick to write off Max’s teammate Pérez who was fourth-best in both first and second practices. We should also point out that he's from Mexico, and of course, the favorite of this audience.
Expert Betting Tips
Many experts said that Hamilton and Bottas (Mercedes) were the favorites in the U.S. Grand Prix. In their opinion, the Circuit of the Americas is more suitable for the motors of Mercedes, but still, it was Max Verstappen (Red Bull) who came first, ahead of the second Hamilton by 1.333 seconds. Now experts say that Max has a better chance to win because the track in Mexico City is more suitable for cars with Honda engines. We dare to assume that in this qualification Max will cross the finish line first again, thereby providing himself an advantage in the race on Sunday. Prediction: Verstappen will win the qualification.
