Lewis Hamilton is running out of answers, Max Verstappen is showing no sign of nerves in the title fight and McLaren’s battle with Ferrari looks set to go to the wire… five things we learned from the Mexican Grand Prix

Hamilton and Mercedes know it isn’t over, much like Verstappen and Red Bull will be leaving the champagne they have on ice for now with one DNF or a botched strategy swinging the momentum back to a rival. But now Mercedes aren’t the fastest car on the track and they don’t have the fastest driver. Yet, victory in Mexico took Verstappen’s season win total to nine, with Hamilton down at five. ‘I think the Red Bull now is going, the Honda is obviously good, very good, the team knows how to win.’. Separated by 13.5 points with four races to go, the fight is on to be the third best team in F1 for 2021. McLaren need to reset with four races to go as Mexico saw them leapfrogged by Ferrari, who now sit third.
